Tallahassee, FL, September 12, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Local Tallahassee area leader for skilled nursing care, Hopewell Home Health Care have recently announced that they’re upgrading their services to include new skilled care options. These additions are designed to improve the options available to local area patients with in-home care needs who may require professional expertise that only a RN or LPN can deliver.
The company is now offering patients direct access to nurses who are qualified to deliver complex medical care. For example, with the company’s new services, clients will be able to receive help with insulin injections, administration of IV medications, medication management, lab draws, wound care or assistance with tube feedings. This means that patients who need a higher level of care are responded to by a professional who is experienced in skilled nursing care.
One area where elderly patients often experience difficulty is safely managing their medications. Now, Tallahassee based Hopewell Home Health Care will be providing skilled nursing experts to help in-home clients better follow routines for taking their medication, monitor for side effects, observe for compliance and report any adverse findings to family and/or MD. This type of service is critical for at-home care patients who may be experiencing memory loss due to Alzheimer's, Parkinson's or just forgetfulness. There are many serious consequences that occur as a result of medication mismanagement including hospitalizations and sometimes fatalities.
In order to respond to this under-reported problem, the team at Hopewell offers a full medication management program. This program includes a weekly visit from a experienced nurse with years of geriatric care experience. During this weekly visit, the nurse will monitor the patient to ensure they’re properly taking the medications. They will also help by reordering and picking up medication when a patient runs out of their current supply. Throughout the process, the nurse will communicate directly with the patient’s family in order to ensure that they’re fully aware of how their loved one is doing.
The professional nurses at Hopewell Health Care are available 24-hours-a-day to respond to any questions or concerns from either the patient or their family.
Hopewell continues to be a leading voice for patients across the Tallahassee area. To learn more about the company, please visit www.hopewellcare.com.
