An important aspect of home care includes teaching you—or those who help care for you—how to continue the necessary care while recovering from your hospital stay. Instruction may include wound care and managing medications; however, there are many other reasons home care may be ordered.
Skilled Nursing — A registered or licensed practical nurse (RN or LPN) will visit to provide services such as dressing changes, catheter care, vital sign assessment, medication assistance, diabetes instruction and care, wound care, I.V. infusion, or any other services your physician has ordered.
Home Health Aide — A certified aide is available to provide services such as personal care, bathing, hair care, bed changes, shaving, and just making you comfortable. This service is available only if there is a skilled or therapy need for your care.
Therapy — If your physician has ordered physical, occupational, or speech therapy, the rehabilitation professionals from Coffey County Hospital will provide these services in the comfort of your own home.
Medical Social Service — Social services professionals are also available on a short-term basis to assess the social and emotional factors related to your illness, need for care, response to treatment, and adjustment to care. Counseling for long-range planning, decision making, and community resource planning is also offered.
Dietician — Coffey Health System's registered dietitian is available for home visits when your physician feels that meal planning and assistance in obtaining proper nutrition will enhance your healing process.
Physician Referrals — CCH Home Health Agency is a division of Coffey Health System, and also gladly accepts referrals from physicians outside of Coffey County.
