Training for staff Registered Nurses is key to the agency providing effective care in the home. Home Care Agency Registered Nurses should be familiar with agency rules and regulations regarding their responsibilities. Changes are constant in the home and Registered Nurses need the training to adapt quickly. Registered Nurses must know how to gather and use resources in order to be effective. Our training module focuses specifically on policy awareness and resources for success in the field. Training sessions may take place at your facility or ours.

Many Registered Nurses are first timers in the Home Care industry. Training is needed to adapt to responsibilities of the home environment. Caregiver and family relations are key elements. With home care, safety of the staff and client are of equal importance for the agency and must be managed effectively.

Supervisory visits are key to maintaining quality care in the home. Training for compliance and follow-up for visit findings will be highlighted. To guide the supervisory visit flow, forms may be formulated or redesigned for compliance and consistency among staff Registered Nurses.

The Care Plan guides care in the home. Registered Nurses are responsible for developing and revising the care plan as needed. Proper delegation and oversight by the Registered Nurse are key components of licensure responsibility. Failure to understand agency policy does not relieve the Registered Nurse of the governing State Board of Nursing statutes for Registered Nurse responsibilities.

Registered Nurses are available in our lab environment to provide training and assistance to your staff RNs in performing skills validation for new and existing agency caregivers. All areas of personal care and safety are covered. Special equipment skills validation training such as Hoyer lift is also available upon request.
