Mercy Home Care's intensive management of heart patient cases has resulted in exceptional clinical success. We've reduced our patients' post-hospital readmittance rate for congestive heart failure from the national average of 20 percent to 8 percent.
In this unique program, our orthopedic case manager coordinates all patient needs, from home assessment and education to specialized cross-training of staff. Working with your local orthopedic surgeon, we have created programs uique for each procedure and provider. For example, we've trained orthopedic nurses and therapists in a variety of post-operative procedures to enable patients to leave the hospital sooner. Our physical therapists are specially trained in staple/suture removal and PT/INR blood testing for patients taking anti-coagulation therapies.
Most infusion therapy needs can be met at home. Mercy Home Care is a single-source for pharmaceutical, equipment and RN care. We coordinate all elements of infusion therapy with key hospital personnel, providing home assessment, patient care assessment and initial patient and caregiver education.

We offer a variety of treatments including:
