Catheter Care

Catheter Management is a part of healthcare and is a thin, sterile tube inserted into the bladder to drain urine. Catheters are used with many disorders, as part of procedures or when the doctor feels that it is better for their patient to have a catheter inserted. All nurses at Continuity Care Home Health are trained and skilled in insertion of the catheter, removal of the catheter and monitoring the patient with a Foley Catheter. Additionally, our highly skilled nurses recognize the symptoms of complications associated with catheters and how to manage a patient’s care.

IV Therapy & PICC lines

Intravenous therapy (IV) is a therapy that delivers liquid substances directly into a vein (intra- + ven- + -ous). The intravenous route of administration can be used for injections (with a syringe at higher pressures) or infusions (typically using only the pressure supplied by gravity). Intravenous infusions are commonly referred to as drips. The intravenous route is the fastest way to deliver medications and fluid replacement throughout the body, because the circulation carries them. Intravenous therapy may be used for fluid replacement (such as correcting dehydration), to correct electrolyte imbalances, to deliver medications.

A peripherally inserted central catheter or “PICC” is a thin, soft, flexible tube — an intravenous (IV) line. Treatments, such as IV medications, can be given through a PICC. Blood for laboratory tests can also be withdrawn from a PICC.

Tracheostomy Care

A tracheostomy is an opening (made by an incision) through the neck into the trachea (windpipe). A tracheostomy opens the airway and aids breathing. Trach patients are at high risk for airway obstruction, impaired ventilation, and infection as well as other lethal complications. Skilled nursing care can prevent these complications.

Wound & Ostomy Care

Wound care can be as simple as changing bandages or become more complicated when addressing skin care, ostomy management and diabetes wound care. Our team of nurses have advanced clinical knowledge that helps your physician make decisions between doctor’s visits and the home healing process. Continuity Care Home Health nurses know the signs of an infection and of abnormal discoloration and smells that can occur during the healing process. Your doctor is updated on a regular basis and kept well-informed.

Labs & Venipuncture

Phlebotomy (Labs) is the practice of drawing blood from patients and taking the blood specimens to the laboratory to prepare for testing.

Venipuncture is the process of obtaining intravenous access for the purpose of intravenous therapy or for blood sampling of venous blood.

Fall Prevention and Home Safety Education

Fall prevention measures can keep older adults at home but as you get older, physical changes and health conditions — and sometimes the medications used to treat those conditions — make falls more likely. In fact, falls are a leading cause of injury among older adults. Still, fear of falling doesn't need to rule your life. Instead, our nurses will teach on simple fall-prevention strategies that will keep you or your loved ones safe.

Home Safety Education can help keep older adults on their feet and in their own homes. A comprehensive nursing assessment can minimize the risks for injury, hospitalization, or long-term-care placement and can also improve older adults' quality of life by keeping them as independent as possible for as long as possible.

Additional Services

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy is a medically-regulated health therapy provided by a Physical Therapist to preserve, enhance, maintain and restore physical function and mobility. Therapy helps preserve or restore movement and overall physical function which has been impaired or threatened by disease, injury or disability. There are many reasons why a doctor would order physical therapy for a patient. This includes patients with recent strokes, patients with history of strokes with continued late effects, Alzheimer’s, patients with chronic pain, hip replacements, incontinence, history of falls, Arthritis, Osteoporosis, or a person who has been in an accident. As part of Continuity Care Home Health Agency’s service, we provide for physical therapy in accordance with your doctor’s orders. Not all patients are able to visit the therapist and in many instances physical therapy begins at home.

Speech Therapy

Speech Therapy is the treatment of speech and communication conditions. Speech Therapists use different techniques based on the disorder they are treating. It may include physical exercises to strengthen the muscles used in speech (oral-motor work), speech drills to improve clarity, or sound production exercises to improve articulation. Continuity Care Home Health provides a Speech Therapist in the home setting when ordered by your physician.

Medical Social Worker

Medical social workers help patients and their families cope with the emotional and social responses to illness and treatment. They also educate patients and their families on entitlements, community resources, and health insurance coverage.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy is for those who need to recapture or reorient to daily, normal life activities because they suffer from physical, developmental, social or emotional impairments. Some patients are not able to travel and may even be bedridden and need specialized Occupational Therapy assistance, which may result in an independent, productive and satisfying life. At Continuity Care Home Health, we provide an Occupational Therapist in accordance with your doctor’s orders which will help our patients lead independent, productive, and satisfying lives due to physical, developmental, social or emotional impairments.

Home Health Aides

A home health aide cares for people who have disabilities, chronic illnesses, cognitive impairments, or age-related problems. They provide basic services that include administering medications, changing bandages, and checking vital signs like temperature, and pulse and respiration rates. All home health aides are supervised by a medical professional, usually a registered nurse. This differs from a personal assistant aide, who do not provide medical services of any type.

A peripherally inserted central catheter or “PICC” is a thin, soft, flexible tube — an intravenous (IV) line. Treatments, such as IV medications, can be given through a PICC. Blood for laboratory tests can also be withdrawn from a PICC.
