Institutional and Private Duty Clients
If you or a loved one requires the care of trained nursing professionals, Dependable Nurses, Inc. can provide the quality, caring nursing staff needed for the situation. The focus of service at Dependable Nurses, Inc. (DNI) is different than at Dependable Home Health, Inc. (DHH). Dependable Nurses, Inc. caters to the needs of long-term care (LTC) insurers and their members and our nurses are experts at caring for persons with chronic illness. We accept Mercy Care Plan LTC, Evercare, ALTCS, VA, University Family Care, United Health Care and dual complete, AZ Division of Developmental Disabilities, and private reimbursement.
The client’s chronic needs influence the structure of the authorization for visits and dictates, in a large part, the length of the therapeutic relationship. In contrast to other types of health insurers which focus on short-term periods of service related to episodic illness or injury, LTC insurance providers manage their chronically ill members proactively by sending home health services to provide ongoing skilled nursing assessments aimed at keeping the client from needing expensive hospitalization or extended nursing home stays. LTC insurers employ case managers who maintain long-term relationships with their membership, with care providers such as Dependable Nurses, Inc., as well as with individual nurses.
Effective provision of any care in the home depends on developing the therapeutic relationship. Keeping this in mind, our nurses establish longstanding therapeutic relationships with our clients over months and years. In the event of an acute exacerbation of condition, our aim is to intervene early. Dependable Nurses, Inc. has won the privilege of being Medicare certified in order to provide acute care to our long-term clients producing a seamless, unified service exemplifying optimal continuity of care.
