Unlike certified nursing assistants, licensed practical nurses can provide comprehensive medical management for many ongoing health conditions. They can help you stay in charge of your health by performing important health checks, such as blood pressure, temperature, and blood glucose checks, to monitor for changes that need to be shared with your doctor. Our licensed practical nurses can also change wound dressings and maintain ostomies, as well as provide nutrition through nasogastric or gastrostomy tubes. The LPNs from Trinity In Home Care can even care for you or a loved one if you have a tracheostomy or require ventilator support.
When hiring nurses for home care, we carefully screen applicants’ education, training, professional experience, and personal characteristics. We look for a strong work ethic, compassion, and a client-focused orientation. Once nurses join our team, they receive ongoing training in the latest developments in health science, nutrition, senior safety, and other relevant topics. We believe in a team approach, so our licensed practical nurses receive ongoing supervision from our registered nursing staff and frequently collaborate with our on-staff social worker. Our social worker will also work closely with you to perfect the details of your or your loved one’s in-home care plan…
