Behavioral Health Nursing
Why Behavioral Health Nursing
Behavioral Health at Home is a program offering comprehensive psychiatric nursing services to patients with mental health disorders.
Our Behavioral Health RN’s skilled nurse visit targets patient specific diagnosis, reduces the need for urgent and emergent inpatient psychiatric care, as well as improves patient overall well-being. In order to serve as a nurse for our Behavioral Health Program, nurses must have a minimum of one full-time year in an active psychiatric treatment center or outpatient clinic to qualify.
If placed in our Program, our nurse collaborates with you, your family and your physician to complete an individualized plan of care. The plan details which therapy, health care and personal care services are necessary to support you in regaining and maintaining a superior quality of life.
The main focus of the program is to help individuals stay at their homes as opposed to being hospitalized in a mental facility. Our nurses will manage and administer medication intake, coordinated with physicians, report any changes in condition, assess mental condition and monitor client’s overall well being.
