What to Expect from Our In-Home Skilled Nursing Services
In-home skilled nursing encompasses the medical care necessary to improve or maintain client health. The client may need a higher level of nursing care due to age or medical conditions.
In some cases, the client is recovering from a surgical procedure or illness and needs extra medical support for a brief time. In other cases, the need for skilled nursing is long-term.
Either way, clients and families turn to iCherish for dependable professional nursing services, including the following:
Plan of Care
The Plan of Care involves the specifics about the medical interventions and treatments the client needs to heal or maintain health at home.
One of our licensed iCherish nurses will come to the client's home to conduct an assessment that will provide the information necessary to develop the Plan. As the nurse creates the Plan, he or she will consider any diagnoses, symptoms, doctor's instructions, medications, and the client’s goals and preferences.
Any nurses and caregivers who will work with the client refer to the Plan of Care during their visits.
In some cases, the Plan of Care and clinical assessment will take place simultaneously.
At iCherish, our nurses utilize this assessment to identify each client's needs, which then helps them develop the most effective Plan of Care.
We determine the range of motion, identify what the client can and cannot do for self, look for wounds, and address other health issues that require the careful attention of our nurses and caregivers.
Administration or Set-Up of Oral (PO) Medications
Setting up the schedule for oral medications is a crucial task. Mistakes can be deadly, which is why our skilled nurses are dedicated to 100% accuracy.
We will create an easy-to-understand schedule that helps the client take the correct medications at the right times, making sure there are no contraindications.
We also work closely with the client’s physicians to ensure the medication plan is always up-to-date and accurate.
Routine Administration of Maintenance Medications including Insulin
At times, clients require extra assistance for the routine administration of their medications, including oral medications and insulin. In the case of insulin injections, only a Registered Nurse (RN) is qualified for the task.
You can be certain you or your loved one will have a highly skilled nurse in your home to provide attentive care in all matters related to medication administration.
Medication Monitoring and Titration
In addition to the set-up and administration of medications, our skilled nurses will monitor the medication and provide titration—also known as drug adjustments—when necessary.
Without monitoring, clients may forget they took medicine and accidentally double-dose. We ensure they are taking the meds correctly and sticking to the right schedule.
