What To Expect

Once your doctor has ordered your Home Health services, a nurse will call you. This will be within 24 to 48 hours after your hospital discharge. Your first home health appointment will occur shortly after that.

The Home Health nurse or therapist who comes to your home will evaluate your condition. He or she will determine which services you need and the frequency of appointments. The nurse or therapist will provide your care. Based on your needs, he or she will also:

  • Review your medications with you
  • Help monitor your vital signs
  • Provide education about your condition and ways to prevent other, more serious issues
  • Conduct a nutrition review
  • Ensure you understand what possible signs and symptoms to look for and when you should call OhioHealth Home Health, your doctor or visit the Emergency Department (ED)
  • Assess your home for safety issues that might hinder your recovery

Our OhioHealth Home Health team will continue to schedule additional home health appointments as needed. This will be based on your progress and condition. We are in your home under your doctor’s orders. We’ll inform him or her periodically about your progress.
