Scripps Home Health Care provides a variety of medical services for patients at home.
In order to receive home health care, patients must:
- Require skilled intermittent care (as opposed to continuous custodial care)
- Have a physician to order the care, and follow up throughout the home care episode
- Be homebound (with a few exceptions), meaning that it takes a considerable and taxing effort for the patient to leave home.
“Home” is wherever the patient is staying (except for skilled nursing facilities).
