  • Make an initial health evaluation and individualized plan of care
  • Administer medications and assist with pain management
  • Clean and dress wounds
  • Document symptoms and vital signs
  • Monitor patient health and update care plan accordingly
  • Instruct patients and their families on proper home care
  • Provide suggestions to improve safety at home
  • Detect early symptoms that could lead to a hospital visit
  • Supervise home health aides
  • Communicate with physicians, social workers or other health advisors

Successful home health nurses must be organized, detail-oriented, and possess effective communication and problem-solving skills. Because the home environment can often be unpredictable, a sense of humor and a positive attitude can come in handy as well.
