As part of the organization’s celebration of National Nurses Week, NAHC launched a search asking its 33,000 members, affiliated state associations and the American public to help identify the top hospice and home care nurses in the nation. The nominations were evaluated by an expert committee and winners from each state were published in the May issue of CARING Magazine. Each of the nurses will be honored at the NAHC Annual Meeting.
The home telehealth program at Forrest General Home Care is an important tool in the nurses’ repertoire of skills, allowing their patients to stay out of the hospital and receive care at home. Nurses work collaboratively with the home telehealth team in order to achieve the best possible patient outcomes. Clark and Rials work collaboratively with a telehealth team to improve the quality of life of their patients.
