Planning Patient Care


After the patient's referral has been accepted, the Home Care staff will assist the physician in planning for the patient's home care. An evaluation is made to determine the patient's needs for nursing services, physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, medical social services and home health aides. The need for special supplies and equipment is also determined. Family members are given an orientation and trained in their responsibilities in providing care for the patient.
