Private Agency Health Professionals Homecare Brings Nursing Excellence Home

...Offering patients expert care in their own surroundings

KNIGHTSBRIDGE, LONDON--(Marketwire - May 12, 2009) - Established for more than a decade, Health Professionals Homecare has once again achieved the Commission for Social Care Inspection's (CSCI) prestigious "Excellence" 3-star rating award for its care services. The CSCI - recently renamed "Care Quality Commission" (CQC) - regulates, inspects and reviews all care services in the public, private and voluntary sectors in England. Of the 645 healthcare agencies in London, Health Professionals Homecare is one of only 18% who hold the 3-star rating.

Registered Manager and RN, Michele Jogee, says: "Hospital care is often the only option for many treatments, but home nursing also plays a vital alternative, or supplementary role. It can give patients extra comfort and security, at times when they're at their most vulnerable - especially when newly diagnosed with terminal conditions. Homecare nurses are able to provide palliative and end-of-life care, including drug administration at home.

"Our Homecare nurses liaise with a patient's multi-disciplinary team, so there is no missing link in terms of care plan, or indeed, medical care."

Health Professionals Homecare recently nursed a 93-year old stroke patient back to independence in her own home. The patient's daughter, former Consultant Rheumatologist, Dr Elizabeth Hughes, says: "My mother was weak and confused following a stroke. Returning home from hospital, to be welcomed into the gentle, competent arms of her attendant from Health Professionals Homecare made such a positive difference.

"After five weeks of exemplary care from a group of consummate professionals, who treated her with dignity, respect and kindness, she fully regained her independence. Every aspect of Homecare's service - from the pristine uniforms and well-trained care personnel, to the efficient office staff and careful record keeping - represents the benchmark for quality care, whether at home or hospital."

Health Professionals Homecare is an established, specialist homecare and home nursing company based in Knightsbridge, London. For over a decade, the agency has been providing a caring and sensitive home care service, working through direct enquiry, personal recommendation and GP/Consultant or Hospital referrals. Its team is managed by Registered Nurses (RNs) with many years' experience of working within healthcare environments, who take that knowledge, care and expertise to patients in their own homes.

Nurse's expertise includes, but is not limited to, end-of-life and palliative care for oncology and neurology patients, IV therapy and daily personal care.
