Home PT Program Appreciated by OrthoNebraska Nurse Navigator

October 24, 2021

“I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your “PT at home” program!! As a Nurse Navigator (discharge planner) for OrthoNebraska, discharging to home alone or without transportation has made home health therapy a necessity for a small portion of our patients.”, shared Sharifa Coover, RN, Certified Orthopedic Nurse with OrthoNebraska.  “Recently, many home health agencies in the area have gone under/ changed hands or have significant staffing issues. Additionally, I get nervous about the continuation of care from home health to outpatient. I LOVE that you have been able to send outpatient therapists into patients’ homes for a short while until they can drive! Our surgeons are huge proponents of outpatient therapy as soon as possible after discharge, so this makes them happy as well (patients not living on home health for weeks on end is a pain point). Happy surgeons mean happy work life. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know this is a great service from a name we trust- thank you!”
