Medicare Home Healthcare and YOU!

If your physician, nursing home or hospital discharge planner wants you to have home healthcare and you are eligible for Medicare home healthcare, tell them you want Firstat Nursing Services. We are a Medicare Certified Agency with RNs, LPNs, and Therapists who will follow your doctors’ Plan of Care for you. You become part of our “triangle of care” Medicare program. The participants are YOU, your physician and Firstat.

Our caregivers follow your physician’s orders. We make up a vital part of this triangle…making the homecare visits to you in your home to help you recover as quickly as possible. Along the way your physician is informed of any changes in care and condition. Simply put we are responsible to YOU and to your physician.

A further benefit is that we provide Medicare patients with telemonitoring equipment to measure their vital signs at NO cost. If you are receiving Medicare homecare now, and wish to change to Firstat, please notify us and your physician. Meanwhile if you have any questions, please call us.
Understand, too, that Firstat’s on-call managers answer our phones around-the-clock…every day/night of the year… these are our employees! We do not have an answering service!

If you are not pleased with your current Medicare homecare company, you can change to Firstat. Call us and we can help you do just that.

Medicare Homecare Tip

In order to qualify for Medicare homecare, a patient must be designated as “homebound.” You do not have to be bedridden, however your condition should be such that there exists a normal inability to leave home if your condition requires a considerable and taxing effort. Short absences from your home are permitted as long as they are infrequent and are NOT for social purposes. For example homebound patients are allowed to attend church, doctors’ appointments as well as therapeutic and psychosocial treatment. Your homecare company, physician and discharge planner can provide you with more detailed information if you require homecare.
