When considering one’s home health care options in Florida, people often wonder whether or not licensed practical nurses provide such services. The short answer is, “Yes, they do.” The secret to success is knowing where to look for a highly qualified one.
The ideal way to find an excellent, licensed practical nurse that’s agreeable to working in a client’s home is a Nurses Registry. Nurse Registries are licensed by the state and maintain a list of highly qualified LPNs willing to provide home care services.
Because they are licensed, Nurses Registries are subject to The Sunshine State’s rules and regulations. Those regulations include such things as keeping a registered nurse on staff, collecting health statements and providing an emergency management plan. Collectively, those types of rules and regulations help to ensure that the Nurses Registry’s clients receive the best LPN care available.
The licensed practical nurses that work with Florida’s Nursing Registries are considered to be independent contractors. Nonetheless, the Nurses Registries in Florida conduct extensive background checks and prescreening on each of the independent contractors that they do business with. This is done to help give clients and their families’ peace of mind.
In addition, the Nurses Registries also require all licensed practical nurses involved with them to provide their personal health status information. This type of information is crucial because people who need LPN services tend to be in fragile health or otherwise have weakened immune systems. That makes them especially susceptible to contracting communicable diseases from those that provide direct care.
Those are just a few of the ways that Nurses Registries can help Floridians secure top notch, LPN services.
