This week, we want to share more of what makes us unique in the home care industry. One of our core values is Excellent Clinical Care. We’ve been practicing Excellent Clinical Care from our beginning in 1999, and we are proud of our thorough training process and our customized charting.
Our excellent care begins with our training process for new nurses. We provide specialized training on complex medical equipment with the equipment providers. We also train our nurses in our office and the client homes. We have a detailed orientation checklist, and nurses must meet all the criteria to complete training. W keep in close communication with the nurses until we feel they are confident in the care they will provide.
In addition to our thorough training, we provide customized charting so that our nurses can focus on caring for the clients instead of a mountain of paperwork. Our charting is tailored to each client and nurses can quickly fill in the important information.
We are proud to be a Minesota leader in home care excellence, and we continue to make a measurable difference in the lives of our clients each day.
I’m Joan, and I know home care from the inside out.
I’ve navigated my daughter through 24/7 home care nursing and managed her PCA’s. I’ve helped my parents move into (and out of) assisted living, Medicare episodes, skilled nurse visits, home health aids, and PCAs. Sandwiched in all of that, I’ve helped coordinate home care equipment and supplies, physical therapists, occupational therapists, county workers, and medications (oh, the medications). I know emergency departments, children’s hospitals, cancer wards, cardiac floors, and specialty units. I can recite health insurance policies (and call their bluff).
I know a lot of other things in life too, like Shakespeare, where to sit to see a great sunset over a lake, how to keep myself healthy, how to read a profit/loss statement and state statutes, when to use a comma, and that gratitude is one of the keys to success.
So I’m going to have this blog and write about home care from time to time. I’ll include topics like current legislation, professional boundaries in a tricky environment, and being a caregiver. I’ll also post some guest blogs from clients and nurses.
Join me in the conversation.
