Nurse Evaluations

Before you leave the hospital or once you've returned home, let an At Your Side Registered Nurse (RN), evaluate you or your loved one.  We specialize in creating a detailed, comprehensive Plan of Care so that the recovery process doesn't end at discharge.

  • Transition of Care Planning
  • Review discharge instructions with the patient and family while still at the hospital or other facility
  • Educate you and your family in self-care
  • Ensure prescriptions are obtained or filled before leaving
  • Conduct home safety and fall risk inspections
  • Confirm and coordinate follow-up appointments with other physicians or providers
  • Ensure you are discharged with the correct durable medical equipment (cane, walker, ramp, etc)
