Individuals participating residential services need well-coordinated medical and dental services. To ensure that people participating in program services have a well-coordinated healthcare plan, Wraparound Services of the Hudson Valley provides each individual with comprehensive nursing services. Our RN and LPN nursing staff ensure that everyone who is providing care is knowledgeable about the consumer’s medication, health care needs, medical appointments, and daily and routine medical treatments.
With the person’s consent, the nurse will serve as the hub on their medical services team ensuring that all community medical providers are working together to support the person’s health. They will assist the person as needed by scheduling medical appointments and follow up visits and coordinate transportation to medical appointments. The nurse locates medical providers as needed, regarding specialty services and acts as the liaison with the local hospitals.
The nurses also ensure that all HIPAA privacy requirements are followed by staff and that tracking systems are created to monitor renewal dates for medication. Additionally, they ensure all annual medical appointments are kept current.
