About Home Health:
Home health is a transitional environment where geriatric patients, that are home bound, meaning they cannot easily leave their home and require therapy or nursing services to prevent injury or treat their current injuries and diagnosis, receive care.
Occupational Therapy in Home Health:
Occupational Therapists work with, PTs, SLPs, Nurses, and MSWs to ensure the patient’s function improves, re-hospitalizations are minimized, and future injuries are prevented. OTs work on ROM, Strength, Safety Training, Cognition, ADLs, IADLs, Gross Motor Training, Fine Motor Training, and Balance Training to improve the patient’s ability to maneuver and function safely in the home.
What to expect while treating:
You can schedule your patients when you want. As long as you and the patient are on the same page, and the insurance has authorized the visits, you may see them when it fits into your schedule. If you want to take a two hour lunch, please do so, no need to tell us, just enjoy. You will be treating patients with a variety of diagnosis including surgical patients (TKR, THR, Spine Surgeries, Shoulder Surgeries, and Fractures), Neuro patients (Parkinsons, Stroke, MS, Cerebral Palsy, Brain Injury), frail/failure to thrive patients (Abdominal Surgery, Pneumonia, General weakness, COPD, CHF, Cellulitis, HTN, SOB, MI), and a random pediatric (LE fracture NWB, or muscle tear, ages 12 to 21). Most all patients will need a combination of education to prevent injury, balance training to improve stability, strength training to promote function, ADL and IADL training to increase patients ability to safely maneuver around the home, and transfer training to have the patient require less assistance from family and care givers. All treatments are for 45 minutes, and on average our therapists seen between 5 and 7 patient per day about 25 to 35 visits per week. You will be assessing to determine if your patient needs safety equipment, if they need the assistance of a care giver, if they are appropriate for therapy, if they are home bound, and if any other therapy, nursing, or social work services will be needed. After you evaluate your patient, you will be required to continue treating them until they are appropriate for discharge. We do not require or use COTAs, this allows us to maintain continuity of care, and ensure our OTs have enough work to keep them busy.
Our company has gone completely electronic. You have the option to do your notes online, on an IPad, Tablet, or at the end of the day on your desktop computer, or you can use a tablet computer to document while with your patient, collect the patient’s signature directly on the screen, and then sync when you get back to an internet connection. Documentation is fast, we are 100% compliant with the Medicare guidelines, but it is done without overwhelming you. All follow up visits are SOAP notes that take about 5 minutes to complete. We are therapist and we understand that doing documentation is necessary, but should not be our primary focus. We like to spend time treating our patients and making them stronger.
BioMechanics is a premier home health therapy company, providing PT, OT, and SLP throughout Southern California. We emphasize premier service, reliable in-home therapy, and elite care. We provide a full support staff to make treating your patients easy. We assist with obtaining more information, dealing with difficult patients, and following up with your requests. This allows you to emphasize patient care and worry less about case management. We are ethical, we will never ask you to change dates, or perform activities that are outside of your practice act.
BioMechanics offers a senior Therapist to bounce ideas off of, answer questions, and give you their perspective on your patients. They will go over your orientation, show you what is required for your documentation, and make sure you are compliant with all home health regulations imposed by Medicare, and the health department.
This occupational therapy position will be open until 12/31/13
