Home care nursing is a service provided by a private and certified agency. They hire registered nurses who have completed an accredited nursing program to take care of clients. These services are typically required right after a client has been discharged home from a hospital or medical facility. The nurse will take head-to-toe physical exams, change wound dressings, draw labs, take vitals, and assist with daily living activities. Lastly, she may help develop a care plan for you with your physician.
