Convenient home visits from a skilled registered nurse provide safer, more frequent attention, resulting in fewer hospitalizations.
What is skilled nursing?
With our skilled nursing services, our registered nurses provide professional home care assistance and rehabilitative care for clients who require more specialized or intensive medical attention. These clients may be recovering from surgery or an acute illness, or they may need specialized medical monitoring for symptoms and conditions related to chronic conditions like diabetes, Alzheimer’s, movement disorders, or pulmonary diseases. Skilled nursing visits can be scheduled more or less frequently, depending on the client’s needs, and can be combined with our regular caregiving visits for a comprehensive at-home care package.
What does in-home RN care entail?
For in-home RN care, Karma Care works with the client’s physicians and care team to create a customized plan that combines RN visits and other in-home companion care. They also maintain regular communication with the providers, other caregivers, families, and the rest of the care team to provide updates and status reports. This client-centered approach can include:
- Administering and monitoring IVs
- Routine tracheostomy management
- Checking and charting vital signs like body temperature, pulse rate, blood pressure, and respiration rate
- G-tube feedings
- Seizure precautions
- Wound care
Do you need home nursing care?
Convenient and regular access to skilled nursing care at home improves long-term outcomes. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, health care providers have been able to prescribe more treatments and condition monitoring at home. From surgical aftercare to administering IVs and other at-home medical treatments, skilled nursing home care provides clients and their loved ones a new kind of peace: treatments that cost less, are less stressful, and involve less exposure to contagion at medical facilities. All the while, they can rest assured that their at-home medical needs are being met by a licensed professional.
