Back to Nursing
- Our registered nurses provide comprehensive assessments of a
patient's needs and work with the patient's physician to develop a plan of care
to be provided by a nurse or other health professionals. Our nurses regularly
reassess the patient's condition and communicate with the physician to update
the plan of care as needed. Nurses offer health education and guidance to the
individual patient and his/her family.
- The Physical Therapist provides an evaluation of the patient's medical
condition and establishes a plan of care with the physician. The expectation is
that the patient's functional status will improve under care.
- The Occupational Therapist evaluates for restoring
physical function, provides motor and tactile activities to increase
sensory output and cognitive function. The occupational therapist provides
instruction on activities and suggests equipment to improve independence
with activities of daily living, vocational assessment and training.
All of our caregivers deliver high-quality, comprehensive healthcare
services in clients' homes while promoting comfort, well-being and
the continued health of Schoharie County. We have continuing education
programs to keep our staff up-to-date on the latest medical skills and
techniques. We survey clients in an ongoing effort to evaluate and
improve our services.
Home Health Aide Services
- Under the supervision of a registered nurse, the Home Health Aide provides
assistance with personal hygiene, dressing, grooming, exercises, transfers and ambulation,
and other related supportive tasks to a patient with health care needs at home.
- Our registered nurses conduct "Patient Review Instrument" (PRI) assessments.
A PRI assessment is mandated by law before any senior can enter a skilled a nursing facility.
PRI's are used to determine the level of care and the type of facility required.
