What is At-Home’s Admission Process?
24 hours after we receive a referral, one of our skilled team members visits the patient and his or her family in their home. A member of our team will thoroughly assess the patient’s needs, explain our services, answer questions and provide the benefit of our services. We also consult with the patient’s doctor to ensure that home health care is an appropriate choice. Finally, we will have the patient or medical DPOA sign consent to treat form to confirm that home health care is the patient’s desired treatment. Once signed, all ordered disciplines can begin services usually within the following 24 hours.
