Delta-Montrose Home Health, owned and operated by Delta County Memorial Hospital, has a new administrative team -- Jon McMurphy, RN, BSN, MBA/MHA, as the director, Hilary Showalter, RN/BSN, as quality manager and Tiffany LaHue, RN, clinical manager -- whose primary goals include strategies to improve the exceptional care of patients.
"We welcome all new and returning home health patients, as your home health care team helping patients to remain in their homes," commented Jody Roeber, RN, MSN, chief clinical officer of DCMH.
Delta-Montrose Home Health is working closely with surrounding clinics, hospitals and health facilities to offer additional home health services including expanded physical and occupational therapies and phototherapy for infants.
Experienced registered nurses assess the patient's health care needs, provide a high level of skilled nursing care, including wound and IV care, instruct the patient and family regarding the skills to cope with lifestyle changes, manage medications and provide education.
Registered physical and occupational therapists assist patients in regaining lost mobility, motor skills, and function; provide treatments and exercises to help relieve pain; and teach the use of adaptive equipment to improve a patient's independence and quality of life.
Licensed speech therapists help with written, verbal, and nonverbal communication, as well as assist in better understanding and language skills.
Certified aides assist with personal care such as eating, bathing, and grooming, and assist with prescribed exercises.
Medical social services consultants help locate additional community services as needed, provide counseling to better help a patient respond to medical treatment, and assist with financial issues and eligibility requirements for assistance.
Through case management, Delta-Montrose Home Health works with a large network of qualified professionals to assist with medical equipment, pharmaceutical, dietary and respiratory care needs. All of your health needs will be coordinated by your primary clinician.
Services are available for children and adults.
Home health is covered by most insurance companies, but coverage varies according to individual policies. DMHH accepts Medicare, Medicaid, worker's compensation, private insurance and self-pay. Claim forms will be completed and submitted to your insurance company for you.
