[heading]A successful transition home starts prior to your discharge from the hospital, rehabilitation facility, skilled nursing facility, or even your doctor’s office. Following a request from your physician, a registered nurse will meet with you and your family members, evaluate your needs, and establish a plan of care.[/heading]
Things to consider when choosing a home healthcare or private duty agency:
- Is the agency accredited by either CHAP, JCAHO or CARF?
- Does the agency conduct thorough background checks on all employees prior to hire?
- Does the agency provide continuing education and training for its clinical staff members?
