Midway Clinic Announces Visiting Nurse Program

Midway Clinic’s Visiting Nurse Program brings a wide range of health care services into Big Horn County homes when ordered by a provider from our Rural Health Clinic. Most hospitalized patients want to go home as soon as possible. Our Visiting Nurse Program is a great alternative to a long-term stay in the hospital or a nursing home. 

“Health care in the safety and comfort of the patient’s home becomes a reality with our new program and caring nursing staff.,” said Kelsey Sullivan, Director of Clinic & Ancillary Services at Three Rivers Health.

Many patients in the community will benefit from this service if they meet the criteria. Patients must be homebound, meaning they lack the ability to leave home without considerable or taxing effort. The candidate must also need skilled nursing care on an intermittent basis. This program compares to a home health service, but with different requirements and a variety of services that are offered. 

Some of the services that will be included are assessments and evaluations, medication education, dressing changes, blood pressure checks, wound and ostomy care, catheter care, blood draws. We will also be offering education for family members regarding home safety, nutrition, care procedures and various other support for family members. 

“This program will help families restore order and peace to their lives and help loved ones stay at home.,” said Donna Cervantes, Midway Clinic Receptionist/Community Member.

After months of working on launching the Visiting Nurse Program we are thrilled to start serving the community in their homes.
