Home Health Care FAQ

Q. Who Should be Referred to Home Care?

A. Criteria for admission to home care are:

  • The patient is homebound.
  • The patient needs health care that requires skilled nursing, physical therapy or speech therapy on an intermittent basis.
  • The attending physician must sign the initial plan of care.

If a patient is not homebound, but may still benefit from home-based services, consider referring the patient to private care for self-pay options.

Examples of patients who would benefit from home care are:

  • Those recovering from surgery
  • Disabled or chronically ill persons needing medical treatment and/or assistance with the activities of daily living
  • Patients recovering from a stroke, heart attack, heart surgery, high blood pressure, cancer, diabetes, lung disease, diseases of the nervous system and terminal illness
  • Patients who have undergone hip or knee replacement surgery, those receiving IV therapy, and those with a colostomy or catheter

These examples are not all-inclusive; however, they illustrate the breadth of home care services we provide.
