Referrals for home care come from patients, family, friends, physicians and hospitals. RNs make an evaluation visit and consult with the attending physicians to devise a plan of care. Physicians might be from Sac City or as far away as Rochester, Iowa City, Omaha, or Kansas City. An interesting trend in the Loring Hospital Home Health Agency is that Baby Boomers do not live close enough to oversee or supervise their parents' health needs so they are calling on the Loring Hospital Home Health Agency staff.
The staff takes quality care seriously and always look for ways to improve care and services. Our local physicians have been very supportive of the home care movement and are always willing to discuss patient concerns.
