Eight Signs Your Gastroenterology Patients May Benefit from Home Health

by Amedisys

Your gastroenterology patients may benefit from Amedisys home healthcare if they:

  1. Need education on ostomy or feeding tubes. 
  2. Are at risk for hospitalization due to comorbid conditions or environmental factors. 
  3. Have wounds or drains that require additional care, assessment and instruction. 
  4. Have difficulty walking to the bathroom, need assistance with toileting/hygiene and would benefit from adaptive equipment or techniques. 
  5. Have caregivers who have significant challenges managing the care of their loved one at home. 
  6. Could benefit from an action plan to help manage exacerbations before they become severe. 
  7. Are habitual callers to your office with questions about their condition, medication or symptoms and could benefit from a skilled nurse for education on medication administration and assess effectiveness to keep symptoms under control. 
  8. Could benefit from education on a bowel program. 

Our highly-skilled nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists and social workers will work closely with you and your staff to develop a plan of care focused on meeting your patient's medical, social and rehabilitation needs.
