Licensed home health agencies are required to provide regular follow-up care to their clients to ensure that their health needs are met and their care plan is effective. This involves a monthly nurse follow-up phone call and a follow-up assessment every 60 days. The nurse follow-up phone call is a brief conversation between the client and a licensed nurse from the home health agency. During the call, the nurse will ask about the client's health status and any symptoms they may be experiencing. The nurse will also review the client's medications, make sure they are taking them as prescribed, and assess the client's ability to perform daily activities. If any issues or concerns are identified, the nurse will notify the physician and make recommendations for additional care or treatment as needed. Overall, regular follow-ups are critical to ensuring that clients receive the best possible care and that any issues or concerns are addressed promptly. It also provides an opportunity for clients to ask questions or raise concerns about their care and to receive support and guidance from a licensed healthcare professional.
