Ask your doctor or hospital discharge planner the responsibilities of a home health care worker in Niagara Helath System - Shaver Hospital & Niagara Rehabilitation Centre Site St. Catharines ON and what their job entails. You should in turn explain what you are expecting from an at home nurse or health care provider and how they can facilitate your day to day activities.
  • Screening: When interviewing potential home health care providers or at home nurses, ask about the caregivers’ skills set and what kind of experience they have. Ask if they will be the regular home health care provider of if there will be a rotation with other nurses. Ask about their liability insurance and worker’s compensation. Ask about their daily or nightly availabilities and where extra costs will be applied. If you are dealing with a home healthcare agency in Niagara Helath System - Shaver Hospital & Niagara Rehabilitation Centre Site St. Catharines ON, ask about their screening process. Cross reference that information with the better business bureau.
  • Get a plan: Once you have settled on a list of potential home health care professionals or at home nurses, ask them to devise a clear plan and budget of the services they will be offering you. This plan should include the medical equipment that will be used and which prescription drugs will be administered. The plan should also clearly indicate what kind of meal plan or diet will be followed. You should feel comfortable and at ease with the home healthcare provider you choose.
