Wound care

In brief: HH Nursing

In order to receive home health paid by medicare (or your insurance) you must have two things: a skilled need and you must be home bound.
Skilled needs can include all kinds of things: wound care, physical therapy, medication monitoring, intravenous medications, etc. The hh nurse is responsible for creating a plan of care and monitoring which includes weekly visits, at the minimum.
