Case Study: Nursing Care

One afternoon, we received a call from a frantic gentleman. He explained that his wife was being discharged from the hospital and she was going to need daily intravenous therapy (IV therapy) at home. He was told the home health agency would set it up the first day and then teach him how to do it.

The gentleman said he was 85 years old and was uncomfortable doing this. We talked about our teamwork with home health agencies and scheduled a time to meet with him and his wife.

During our meeting with this client, we completed a comprehensive assessment and told them how we could help. We coordinated with the home health agency and scheduled visits on the days the home health nurse would not be there, ensuring the client received her daily IV therapy in order to make a complete recovery.

Why In-Home Nursing Care?

In situations like this, when a loved one needs specialized care, his or her physician may order home health services which will be covered by medical insurance, including Medicare. However, home health care agencies typically schedule visits only a few days each week and will rarely perform the service daily because insurance companies, including Medicare, will not pay for daily visits.

While the home health nurse will teach the client, a family member, or friend how to perform the specialized care task, there may be times, as in the case with the gentleman who called about his wife, when the client and/or their loved ones do not feel comfortable performing the tasks. They are relieved to know that the trusted professionals at Aware Senior Care can help.
