Home care staff
All of our staff members must pass a rigorous interview process, including criminal history check, educational verification and employment checks. We strive to hire only the best individuals to provide care to our patients. Many of our nurses and clinical staff have several years’ experience in emergency medicine, intensive care, surgery, cardiac care, rehabilitation, pharmacy, and more. Our staff members also understand the importance of respecting patient privacy in delivering patient care.
Our nursing team has many years of experience in different health care settings and special care programs. These experiences have provided our home care nurses with the knowledge and skills necessary to care for each patient’s medical needs in the patient's home.
Our home care nursing staff can provide a variety of skills and knowledge:
