Baptist Home Health consists of a team of healthcare professionals offering home-oriented alternatives to hospitalization, assistance following hospitalization and assistance with daily activities.
The service area covers eight counties: Montgomery, Autauga, Elmore, Macon, Bullock, Pike, Lowndes and Crenshaw. Registered nurses and licensed practical nurses provide excellent skill and care, while physical, occupational and speech therapists are experienced at restoring your ability to do for yourself. They round out their services with pediatric nursing and medical social services.
To qualify for home health, patients must meet three criteria:
- must have an attending physician who orders home health services
- must be homebound
- must need a skilled service (nursing, physical therapy or speech therapy).
Following the physician referral, home health will contact the patient and develop an individualized plan of care based on his or her needs and physician recommendations.
Baptist Home Health services are JCAHO accredited and covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance plans. Self-payment arrangements are also accepted.
