In Home Care

In some instances, a physician will prescribe in home care for a trauma patient. This allows the trauma patient to continue with their recovery and rehabilitation by receiving treatment from nurses and therapists that visit them in their own home. In this situation, your case manager will contact the home health agency that will be providing your care to set up a schedule. The case manager will provide you with the name and phone number of your home health agency prior to discharge.
