Hospital to Home Care

One of the leading causes of hospital readmission or slow recovery after hospitalization or surgery is the lack of proper professional support following a hospital discharge. Whether you are home after a hospitalization, rehabilitation center, or medical care facility, the in-home professional care provided by OCCP is a key resource for a safe and successful recovery and healing process.

We are committed to the well being and safety of our patients, and feel honored to serve. Health and wellness professionals know that the transition from the hospital to home can be very challenging for patients as well as their families. This is why the majority of our patients come to us following a hospitalization, having been referred to us by physicians, discharge planners, social workers and case managers. Studies show that the major cause for hospital readmission or slow post-hospitalization recovery is the lack of proper support immediately following a hospital discharge.

Being experts in post-hospitalization care, we are aware of the challenges and resources associate with each step in the transition from hospital to home. One of the first tasks your OCCP Case Manager will do is an in depth Home Safety Evaluation to ensure that there are no hazards in way of your healing and rehabilitation. And next, he/she will diagnose and assess your condition and provide you with a plan of care to ensure your most optimal rehabilitation at home. It is our commitment to provide you with the best care possible for you to ensure that you are not re-hospitalized.

Keep doctors informed of changes and events and follow-up, as needed.

To keep your loved ones in their own homes, we will:

  • Turn potentially chaotic home situations into manageable issues lowering stress and anxiety.
  • Act as a healthcare advocate – a neutral third party between patient and doctor. This support often encourages patients to speak more openly about their symptoms and health concerns.
  • See home care as a means with constant treatment and monitoring to nurture your loved ones back to health.
  • Monitor and assess conditions on a regular basis and make adjustments when necessary.
  • Make sure all significant changes, events and implications are understood.
