When it comes to caring for a patient, there is no such thing as ‘one size fits all’. Every patient requires a different approach and has his or her own individual needs. This is why case management in nursing is so very important. But what is case management in nursing? We explain the intricacies below. What is case management? Case management refers to the process where a caregiving professional or social worker will assess a client’s unique circumstances and, from there, adapt his or her care to allow for maximum comfort, health, and happiness. When assessing the client’s circumstances, the case management professional may look at various factors, including: The Client’s Living Conditions: For instance, are the conditions suitable to allow for seamless, risk-reduced living? Or, are there improvements that can be made? How can the living conditions be transformed to allow for the client to live a healthier and happier lifestyle? The Client’s Personal Health: What are the health conditions that the patient is suffering from? Is anything being done to control symptoms and pain? Is the health condition likely to improve if specific care is received? The Client’s Day-to-Day Activities:Is he or she mobile? Is he or she getting enough exercise? Is he or she is eating enough nutritionally-rich meals, drinking enough water, and so on? If not, what can be done to make improvements? Case management investigation may take a few hours, or it may take a few weeks. It all depends on the client’s circumstances. The home health social worker will take note of all of these aspects and provide the client’s loved ones with recommendations for in-home care as well as suggestions on what changes can be made in order to improve the client’s health, mental outlook, and quality of living.Here at Tri-Med Home Care Services, we specialize in a wide range of home care services, including case management services for seniors.
