Who we are
LA BEST HOME HEALTH
To provide the community with the highest level of health care in home by hiring the most competent, compassionate clinicians available.
ACCESSING LA BEST HOME HEALTH CARE
We work on a referral basis. Though referrals typically originate with the physician, they may also originate form local hospitals, doctor’s office, board and care or skilled nursing facility and also, from the patient’s family, other interested persons or agencies. Within 24-48 hours, an LA Best Home Health representative will be alerted of the patients needs. The patient will be seen, evaluated, and care will begin. Under certain circumstances, special immediate care can be rendered the same day.
WHO ARE THE PROFESSIONALS THAT VISIT YOUR HOME
1 – Registered Nurses (RNs) provide individual care and case management for medically prescribed treatment.
2 – Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs) working under the physician’s orders and RN supervision, administer medication, provide treatments, and assist the patient with returning to independent activities of daily living.
3 – Certified Home Health Aids provide personal care and aid in the overall improvement of patients quality of life.
To qualify for the Medicare services, the patient must be under the care of a physician, a dentist, or a podiatrist, be home-bound and require intermittent skilled care – this may include observation, instruction, or hand-on care.
