Yes, Home visit doctor is getting more and more popular by the day, especially during the pandemic. With most people choosing to stay home, a hospital visit has become a dreadful thing no one wants to do unless absolutely necessary. Nowadays, we can find all kinds of medical home care on the market.
Whether it’s a mild flu or a much worse case of diarrhea, it’s always nice to have the convenience of just staying in bed and have the doctor comes to us. Of course, most of the time, it will cost us a little bit more since we have to cover their transport fee too, but if you ask us, not having to get up from bed and go out in Bali heat is really worth the extra money.
The range of home health care services a patient can receive at home is limitless. Depending on the individual patient’s situation, care can range from nursing care to specialized medical services, such as laboratory workups. You and your doctor will determine your care plan and services you may need at home. At-home care services may include:
A doctor may visit a patient at home to diagnose and treat the illness(es). He or she may also periodically review the home health care needs.
The most common form of home health care is some type of nursing care depending on the person’s needs. In consultation with the doctor, a registered nurse will set up a plan of care. Nursing care may include wound dressing, ostomy care, intravenous therapy, administering medication, monitoring the general health of the patient, pain control, and other health support.
Physical, occupational, and/or speech therapy
Some patients may need help relearning how to perform daily duties or improve their speech after an illness or injury. A physical therapist can put together a plan of care to help a patient regain or strengthen use of muscles and joints. An occupational therapist can help a patient with physical, developmental, social, or emotional disabilities relearn how to perform such daily functions as eating, bathing, dressing, and more. A speech therapist can help a patient with impaired speech regain the ability to communicate clearly.
Medical social services
Medical social workers provide various services to the patient, including counseling and locating community resources to help the patient in his or her recovery. Some social workers are also the patient’s case manager–if the patient’s medical condition is very complex and requires coordination of many services.
Care from home health aides
Home health aides can help the patient with his or her basic personal needs such as getting out of bed, walking, bathing, and dressing. Some aides have received specialized training to assist with more specialized care under the supervision of a nurse.
Homemaker or basic assistance care
While a patient is being medically cared for in the home, a homemaker or person who helps with chores or tasks can maintain the household with meal preparation, laundry, grocery shopping, and other housekeeping items.
