FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
questions and answers
Home healthcare encompasses a spectrum of healthcare and social services that are delivered in the comfort and privacy of one’s home to those persons who are in need of nursing, therapy, and/or social services. One Home Health provides intermittent medical services to help our patients recover from temporary conditions such as a joint replacement or manage more chronic illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, pulmonary disease, or arthritis.
Home health care can be a highly beneficial alternative to inpatient care at a hospital or medical facility if you or a loved one recently had surgery, is undergoing cancer treatment, has been diagnosed with a serious medical condition, is recovering from a serious injury, or is otherwise in need of professional care. The goal of home healthcare is to treat an illness or injury and help you recover, regain your independence and become as self-sufficient as possible.
- People of all ages. OHH services adult and geriatric populations.
- People who can leave the hospital or nursing home but need additional care;
- People who have short-term health needs;
- People who need assistance, due to age or disability, to remain at home; and
- People who need education about the disease process and training on how to best care for themselves.
In order to qualify for home healthcare services, a patient must be under the care of a physician who certifies the individual requires intermittent skilled nursing care and/or requires the skills of physical therapy, occupational therapy or speech therapy. A physician also must certify that patient is “homebound” or have a normal inability to leave home without considerable assistance.
Homebound simply means your condition prevents you from safely leaving your home without help from others and the aid of assistive devices (such as crutches, canes, walkers or wheelchairs). Leaving home would require considerable and taxing effort.
In most cases, you are still considered homebound when you leave home for medical treatments that cannot be provided in the home. Brief and occasional non-medical absences from the home are allowed, such as to attend church, an occasional trip to the barber or beauty shop, or for special family events. Such trips must be infrequent and require a considerable and taxing effort.
Once the referral is made from your physician, a One Home Health healthcare provider will contact you to set up an appointment to perform an assessment and evaluate you in your home. They will work closely with your physician to develop your individualized care plan and communicate any updates or changes in your progress. Any necessary changes to your care plan will be done with collaboration with your physician.
The team includes doctors, nurses, home health aides, medical social workers, and therapists. They coordinate care based on your needs.
YES. Under federal law patients have the right to choose their healthcare provider. You can select One Home Health as your home health agency, and we would be pleased to provide care to you.
The number of home healthcare visits are determined according to your personalized needs and are based on physician orders in conjunction with Medicare regulations and private insurance approval. Your doctor may change your individualized care plan as necessary by increasing or decreasing the number of visits provided in order to provide you with the best home healthcare for your needs.
