Home Care Agencies Share Best Practices

Joyce Young, RN, of Community Nurses of Penn Highlands Elk, seated, was a guest speaker at Penn Highlands Clearfield Home Health and Hospice. Standing are Clearfield Nurses Vicki Lansberry, RN, on left, and Linda Weitoish, RN, on right. Joyce discussed the process used at the Community Nurses’ weekly interdisciplinary meetings where staff members use a team approach to develop a plan of care for each patient to achieve desired goals and outcomes. The discussion that followed provided valuable information for each agency on the different methods and procedures currently in use. The home care agencies of Penn Highlands Healthcare are working together to ensure the best care possible for their home care patients.
