Nurses On Call involves key professionals and other staff members in developing your individualized Plan of Care, Treatment and Services. Your plan is based upon identified problems, needs and goals, physician orders for medications, care, treatments and services, timeframes, your environment and your personal wishes whenever possible. The plan is designed to increase your ability to care for yourself. Effective pain management is an important part of your treatment.
The plan may include the following interventions and goals:
• Health care
• Personal care
• Discharge plan
• Psychosocial needs
• Physician information regarding orders & treatments
The plan of care is reviewed and updated as needed, based on your changing needs. We encourage you, your caregiver or your designee to participate in the planning and revising of your plan of care. Medical information will be provided so that you, your caregiver or guardian can participate in developing your plan of care. You, your caregiver or guardian may have a copy of the plan of care, upon request.
You have the right to refuse any medication or treatment procedure. However, such refusal may require us to obtain a written statement releasing the agency from all responsibility resulting from such action. Should this happen, we would encourage you to discuss the matter with your physician for advice and guidance.
We fully recognize your right to dignity and individuality, including privacy in your treatment and in the care of your personal needs. We will notify you if an additional individual needs to be present for your visit for reasons of safety, education or supervision. We do not participate in any experimental research connected with patient care except under the direction of your physician and with your written consent. There must be a willing, able and available caregiver to be responsible for your care between agency visits. This person can be you, a family member, a friend or a paid caregiver.
