Exceptional Care.  Always.

HOMETOWN CARE

Post-Acute Services

Sometimes being discharged from a hospital stay doesn't mean you are fully recovered from your illness or injury.  In fact, many people discover that they need additional help afterwards to get back to normal.

 

As such, we offer the following programs and services to Moore County residents who need extra assistance and want to receive care close to home.

 

If you are currently hospitalized in another town and need additional services after your stay, or if you are currently receiving care in another town and would like to receive this care in Moore County, simply call 806-934-7851 and our Patient Care Coordinator will work to get the services you need as close to home as possible.

SWING BED SERVICES

 

 

Swingbed services provide additional skilled care to patients who no longer qualify for acute services in the hospital inpatient unit, but need more assistance before they go home on their own.

 

This program is a bridge between hospitalization and complete recovery.

 

Some good examples of those who may  benefit from swingbed services include:

  • Those who have had surgery and need either additional monitoring or physical or occupational therapy afterwards
  • Those who need assistance regaining their strength (strength training) after an illness
  • Those needing wound care
  • Those needing IV therapy for medications, fluids, etc.
  • COVID patients who need oxygen management before going home

 

Swingbed is ordered by a physician and requires approval for insurance purposes, but many insurances, including Medicare, include swingbed services in their coverage.

TELENURSING SERVICES

 

 

Telenursing services such as Chronic Care Management (CCM) and Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) are used to connect patients and nurses while a patient is in their home.  Nurses call or connect with their patients through user-friendly technology to help manage a patient's chronic condition or to help monitor an active condition and prevent a patient from becoming worse.

 

These programs are good for patients who have:

 

Diabetes (CCM/RPM)

Heart Failure (CCM/RPM)

Asthma (CCM/RPM)

High Blood Pressure (CCM/RPM)

Post Hospital Care (RPM)

Medication Changes (RPM)

COVID (RPM)

Etc.

 

Both programs are ordered by a physician and are reimbursable by certain health insurance providers.

 

CCM is reimbursed by Medicare and the Cactus Preferred Network and RPM is reimbursed by most health insurances.

PHYSICAL THERAPY

 

 

Our Physical Therapists treat individuals who have suffered impairments in mobility or function, or illness in their extremities. They develop individualized plans to help their patients perform activities to improve movement in their daily lives and use a wide range of equipment at their disposal to help achieve their patient’s goal.

 

Physical Therapists are trained in a wide area of specialties including sports medicine, wound care, geriatrics, orthopedics, pediatrics, and more. They work in both inpatient (hospital) and outpatient settings and provide therapy to Home Health patients, Nursing Home residents and to local schools.  They collaborate with both the patients and their support systems/families

to create a plan of care that is realistic and patient-centered.

 

MCHD Therapists are trained in Document Based Care for the Active Spine Care System and have special training for Functional Capacity Evaluations, Sports Medicine, Neurodevelopmental Treatment, Wound Care, and are Lympedena Certified.

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

 

 

Our Occupational Therapists treat individuals who have lost some ability to perform functions of their everyday life through a physical, mental, or cognitive disorder and focus on treatment that helps to develop, recover, or maintain the patient’s daily living and/or work skills so they can get back to their daily routine.

 

Occupational Therapy is often confused with the specific treatment of workman’s comp/ vocational/ job training cases and, though Occupational Therapists do help with these lines of treatment, the majority of their work is to identify and eliminate environmental barriers to a patient’s independence and participation in their daily home activities. Occupational Therapists focus on adapting the environment, modifying tasks, teaching skills, and/or educating the patient (and their support system/family) in order to increase their participation and performance of their daily activities, especially those activities that are the most meaningful to the patient.

 

For an adult, this often means patients being able to taking care of themselves, their homes, enjoying their off-time, and/or successfully returning to their careers. For children, this means often means being able to brush their teeth, being able to play, or use their utensils or even crayons.
