Expert Care in Your Own Home
March 31, 2014
At Providence Health & Services, Southern California, we know there’s no place like home. That’s why patients hospitalized with serious illnesses can turn to our home health agencies, Providence Home Care and Little Company of Mary Home Health, for experienced follow-up care.
For an average of 30 to 60 days following hospitalization, home health nurses can help everyone from high-risk moms and/or newborns to seniors with the technical aspects of care, including IVs and feeding tubes. They also can provide disease management following heart attack, stroke, congestive heart failure, orthopedic problems and gastrointestinal issues.
“We want patients to become as independent as possible in the comfort of home,” says Belinda Condit, R.N., MSN, NE-BC, administrator of Providence Home Care. “We help patients continue to get better at home, so they won’t have to return to the hospital.”
