What You Will Do:
The home health nurse provides direct patient care in the patient's home environment as part of a multidisciplinary team including PT, OT, speech, social work and home health techs. The nurse will evaluate patients and use professional judgment to design the individualized plan of care which best meets the patient's needs. The nurse will provide direct, one-on-one patient care, and will also supervise care provided by aides. The home health agency relies heavily on technology; email is a primary means of communication and the nurse will use a laptop to complete documentation in an electronic record. The patient population varies widely across the spectrums of acuity, age, and diagnosis. The nurse works under the direction of a clinical team manager. Employment begins with a 6-10 week orientation with a seasoned preceptor to ensure that the clinician is well prepared when they begin treating on their own. Additional job duties include performance improvement opportunities, policy and procedure review and development, research, etc. Working in home health provides endless variety of setting, scenery, and clinical challenges, and provides a unique opportunity to enter and work within the real life environments of our patients, bringing meaningful change to their daily lives.
