Skilled Nursing Care
If your loved one has recently undergone surgery, has been discharged from the hospital or is dealing with a disability, chronic condition, or terminal illness, Christiana Care Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) is here to help. Our dedicated nurses are skilled in medical and surgical nursing, diabetes care, cardiac care, wound care, post-hospital care and medication management. We work with you, your loved one and his or her doctors to create a complete care plan that will meet a wide range of medical needs.
Our skilled nurses will come to your, or your family member’s, home to provide the medical care your loved one needs to stay as comfortable, independent and healthy as possible. From pain management to infusion therapy to patient education – we’ll help your loved one remain at home and out of the hospital.
For some conditions, medicine, nutrients, and other treatments must be given via intravenous (IV) injection. This type of treatment is also called infusion therapy. Our specially trained infusion therapy nurses provide comfort and healing, including:
- IV site care.
- Administration and instruction on IV therapy.
- Drawing and reporting lab values.
Wounds that are not treated properly can take longer to heal and cause other health problems. Christiana Care Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) certified wound care specialists will come to your home to be sure you or your loved one receives safe and effective treatment that manages pain and promotes healing.
Our wound care experts are experienced in managing a wide variety of skin care needs, from minor skin irritations and injuries to complicated, complex wounds. Plus, we document progress with digital imagery, carefully monitor changes in your healing process and adjust treatment as necessary. Count on us to come to you and provide:
- Instructions on how to care for your or your loved one’s wounds.
- Wound treatments that manage pain, prevent infection and promote healing.
- Follow-up with your physician to assess progress.
Christiana Care VNA partners with patients and their families to provide skilled, coordinated, compassionate in-home care. Our tradition of caring for people across their lifespan is supported by the state’s largest health care system – Christiana Care. As Delaware’s home health care agency of choice, we are proud to serve our community by helping people get well, be healthy and live independently at home.
