Providing Another Level of Care
What I am excited to share today is the addition of Lynn Vosatka, RN to our care team at Right at Home! Lynn came to us from another home care company whose owner recently retired and dissolved his business.
Lynn has many years of nursing experience in a variety of settings, most notably in home health. Lynn provides another level of care to our clients with regular health assessments, serving as a liaison between the physician and client/family, medication and symptom management as well as other tasks that help people stay independent in their homes. A perfect example of her services happened yesterday when one of our caregivers called to report a change in condition of one her clients. The client agreed to have Lynn come out and assess her symptoms as she was feeling short of breath and was not able to go to the doctor due to procedures behind controlling the spread of the coronavirus and her limited mobility. Lynn went to her home right away and began communications with the primary physician reporting findings of physical assessment and coordinating care. Our client did not have to wait for a doctor’s order as is required by Medicare and other insurance plans because she paid privately for Lynn’s expertise.
It is an awesome feeling knowing we can address a client’s concerns so quickly and get them on a path to healing and recovery. Regular home visits with our nurse are more convenient, personal, and can prevent the onset of illness or disease. So excited to have Lynn on board with us!
