The way we Help
In suggesting or recommending private duty home care for your patients upon discharge we may help reduce potential readmissions through providing the following:

� Private duty home care services (for those that tend not to be eligible for home care but tend to afford and could use aide level care).

� Meet patient at hospital to set up care.
� RN visit with medication reconciliation upon arrival in to the home (paid through the patient).

� Transportation to the patient's Physicians visits to the doctor within 10
times of discharge to ensure compliance (paid by the patient).
