Patients often require home health care services, which can be daunting to set up within one’s home. Not only do you need to worry about the care being provided, there are considerations regarding licensure, as well as honesty and reliability of the caretakers. Sadly there are companies out there set up to conduct fraudulent activities within the homes of their patients, which is one reason that many people feel home health care should be regulated better.
You are an office manager for a surgical clinic, and many of your patients are referred to home health programs. To assist your patients, create an educational handout with checklist helping them to determine what they should look for in a home healthcare agency. Make sure you include data and research to help show the patients the needs for reliable and highly trained home healthcare workers. Your handout should include both text as well as visual aids, such as graphs and pictures.
