HiHomeCare Registered Nurses provide in-home nursing care for patients as follow-up care post-discharge from a hospital or rehabilitation, as well as long-term care.
RNs assess, treat, and inform patients about their various medical conditions and provide advice and emotional support to patients’ families. RNs record patients’ medical histories and symptoms, help perform diagnostic tests and analyze results, operate medical machinery, administer treatments and medications, and help with patient follow-up care.
RNs teach patients and their families how to manage their illnesses or injuries, explaining post-treatment home care needs such as diet, nutrition, exercise, self-administration of medication, and physical therapy.
When caring for a patient, RNs establish a care plan or contribute to an existing plan. Plans may include numerous activities such as administering medication, including careful checking of dosages and avoiding interactions; starting, maintaining, and discontinuing intravenous (IV) lines for fluid, and medication; administering therapies and treatments; observing the patient and recording those observations; and consulting with physicians and other health care clinicians.
Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs)
HiHomeCare LPNs provide in-home nursing care for patients, often as follow-up care after discharge from a hospital or a rehabilitation, long-term care facility, or skilled nursing facility.
LPNs care for people who are sick, injured, convalescent, or disabled, under the direction of physicians and Registered Nurses.
LPNs care for patients in many ways, including preparing and giving injections and enemas, monitoring catheters, dressing wounds, and providing skin care.
To help keep patients comfortable, they assist with bathing, dressing, personal hygiene, moving in bed, standing, and walking. They will also feed patients who need help eating. Additionally, LPNs measure and record patients’ vital signs such as height, weight, temperature, blood pressure, pulse, and respiration.
As part of their work, LPNs collect samples for testing, record food and fluid intake and output, and clean and monitor medical equipment. LPNs also monitor for and report adverse reactions to medications or treatments. LPNs gather information from patients, including their health history and how they are currently feeling, and share this information with Registered Nurses and physicians to help determine the best course of care. LPNs often teach family members how to care for a relative and teach patients about good health habits.
