Our experienced nurses at the VNA are highly skilled, passionate, patient advocates. Our nursing staff is proud to carry on the tradition of superior, compassionate care that has been delivered to hundreds of thousands of patients throughout the Johnson County area for over sixty years. Working together with a patient’s physician the VNA nurses develop a plan of care to meet each individual patient’s needs. By providing clinical care, patient and family education and support; our nurses coordinate a home care program to help patients become independent in managing their care safely at home.
Examples of what our nurses can do:
- Monitor a person’s vital signs, blood pressure, heart rate, medication, and any special diet.
- Control the impact of acute and chronic illnesses such as diabetes and heart disease as well as help reduce the complications caused by wounds and ostomies.
- Teach self-care techniques for asthma, diabetes, stroke, heart and respiratory conditions, wounds, ostomies and catheters.
- Arrange for additional services if needed and communicate with others in the home health care team.
