District Nursing Care

Nursing Care provides short-term or long-term care to clients who are getting older, are chronically ill, recovering from surgery, or disabled. The nurses provide nursing care to clients of all ages; children, adults and seniors to remain safely at home. Nursing Care offers help with basic care like bathing, getting dressed, and eating as well as skilled care. Skilled Nursing Care is given by practical and registered nurses and can include medical monitoring and treatments.

Our team can help you manage complex care needs at home by providing:

  • Catheter and ostomy care

  • Nasogastric (NG) tube care

  • Respiratory treatments

  • Gastrostomy (feeding tube) care

  • (Intravenous) medication and injection administration

  • Specific guidance and care for terminally ill

If your loved one has no complex medical conditions and simply needs support to live independently in their own home, Home Care may be the solution you need.

Nursing Care allows clients to stay safely in their home. It helps avoid unnecessary hospitalization, it is an alternative to an assisted living facility or nursing home, offering a more client centered solution. Clients are in their own environment, interacting with people they love. It keeps clients active and mentally stimulated. The increased independence will maintain a high quality of life.

Receiving specialized Nursing Care is the key to achieving the highest level of recovery and quality of life. Knowledgeable and experienced nurses will care for clients with various conditions. Compared to the hospitalized client, the Nursing Care client often has a greater role in determining how and even if certain interventions will be implemented.

Admission Criteria

Nursing Care is provided depending on:

  1. Support of family;

  2. General health status of the client;

  3. Living and social environment of the client.

Prospective clients and/or their family or caretakers can submit a referral by general practitioner or medical specialist via Hecina Healthcare Insurance Suite. It is required that the prospective client agrees to receive the care.

The following documents are needed to start the intake process:

  1. Referral letter which a clear description of the care that is needed;

  2. Medication list (if applicable);

  3. Wound treatment plan (if applicable);

  4. Copy of valid ID card;

  5. Copy of valid insurance card;

  6. Contact information of client and/or family member or caretaker.

In case a client transfers directly from a local or overseas hospital and was admitted for more than 24 hour, the following additional documents are needed:

  1. Recent HRMO and MRSA culture results of nose, throat, perineum, and if applicable of sputum, urine, skin lesions and wounds;

  2. Updated treatment report;

  3. Transfer report.

These documents can be emailed or delivered to our Social Worker, Minerva Maccow via email: socialworker@whiteyellowcross.org 

Follow Up

Once the referral is received via Hecina Healthcare Insurance Suite (software of SZV that healthcare providers use), the team of District Nursing will contact the potential client or their family to plan the intake, which is done at home. During the intake the full care needs are assessed and a care contract is made by the nurse. This is send to SZV via email for approval. During the intake the home situation is also assessed for materials needed to give care safely (for example, an adjustable hospital bed, shower chair etc.). If such materials are needed, we will contact your family physician to request these materials via Hecina. After SZV approval for the care contract and nursing materials is received, the care can start as soon as all materials are delivered by the supplier contracted by SZV.
