Acceptance of Patients

Home health care was never meant to replace the loving care of family and friends and cannot assume the primary responsibility for a patient’s safety in the home setting. Home care works best in situations where there are supportive family and friends; if the patient cannot be left safely in the home alone, they are a must.

Acceptance of individuals who require medical home care services is based on a reasonable expectation that the agency can adequately meet the individual’s medical, nursing, and psychological needs in their home.

We may accept you or your loved one as a patient when the following conditions are met:

You or your loved one:

  • Is safe to be in the home alone or has a caregiver who provides care when the agency is not in the home.
  • Is under the care of a physician who will order the medical care needed.
  • Is in need of the requested care and our agency staff is available to provide that care.
  • Has medical, nursing, and psychosocial needs that can be adequately met by the agency in the home.
  • The house is maintained in a manner that is safe for both you and the employees of the agency.
  • An appropriate payer source is identified.

Please contact one of our locations listed and speak with a nursing supervisor to determine what care is appropriate.
