There's no place like the comfort and convenience of home for recuperation from illness, accident, surgery, or disability. As an alternative to extended hospitalization or nursing home care, Loma Linda University's Home Health Care provides specialized medical care in the home under the direction of the patient's physician. The program also incorporates the patient's family in a comprehensive program of care delivery. Our team of qualified professionals and support staff works closely with the physician to coordinate and carry out a plan of care designed to make the most of each person's potential for recovery. We promote patient independence and participation in the planning of their care. Care is provided on an intermittent basis. On-call staff are available 24 hours a day after hours.
Home health care offers a full range of visiting health services, including:
- Enterostomal therapy
- Intravenous therapy
- Medical social work
- Occupational therapy
- Pediatric and maternal/child nursing
- Personal care
- Physical therapy
- Skilled nursing care
- Speech therapy
- Dietitian telephone consult
