We have two objectives with our skilled nursing at home service:
1) to better your quality of life; and
2) to make it convenient for you.
What services are provided?
Medication compliance. If you or your loved one needs help understanding a new health condition, how or when to take medications, or the importance of managing high blood pressure Patriot nurses are there to answer any questions you may have.
IV Therapy. Patriot nurses will educate and train you and your caregivers to ensure you are confident in managing your IV medications at home.
Skilled Wound Care. Patriot nurses are trained to assess, evaluate, and identify a variety of wounds including surgical wounds, diabetic wounds, and pressure ulcers. Our nurses will create a personalized wound care plan and educate the patient and caregivers on how to care for these wounds, as well as supervise the healing of the wound.
Wound Vacuum Care. Wound vacuums can seem intimidating, but Patriot nurses are here to help. Our nurses are trained to supervise and operate wound vacs, as well as teach patients and caregivers so they are comfortable maintaining them in the home.
Who is eligible for Patriot Skilled Nursing at home?
When we receive your call, our program coordinator will ask a few questions to determine if you are eligible for in-home care, and if so, we set up an appointment to assess your needs.
