In the past 2 centuries, human health has become the center of attention of the world. We have suffered so much at the hands of the mortality and morbidity of the disease that it has become a tiring battle and seems it’s never going to end.
A silver lining in all the chaos and uncertainty for human health is that we are getting more and more aware of the health situations and its importance for a better quality of life. Since the human race refused to accept the cruelty of disease and death, it has become more able to focus on the ways to improve health with every increasing day. And we can all witness the tremendous advances that the human races have made in the field of health, science and improving the quality of life as result. We can proudly say that we created at the best of nature by God the Almighty.
Health advances up till now
Well, we have talked much about how we humans have improved the health system over time. Let’s talk about the recent changes that our health system has introduced to make sure that all humans receive health care facilities. We have built hospitals, good nursing homes, and what not to ensure proper and timely health care services.
You know there is a good number of patients who would like to receive all the health care services in the comfort of their homes for many reasons. So, there is a newly introduced concept of home health visits. If we follow this closely, we will come to know that home health visit itself is not a new concept. Doctors and other health care providers did pay frequent visits to the patients when required.
The new thing here to note is that the latest advances and equipment and expertise associated with that make it more favorable for a patient to have healthcare services at the comfort of their homes. But, as we have discussed earlier, there is nothing that humankind cannot do.
Home health visit record sheet
Having praised all the advances that we have made, the importance of documentation can never be forgotten in the field of patient care. We need to document each and everything that comes across during patient care. A home healthcare visit record sheet serves the same purpose. Even though the patient is not under the direct supervision of the medical team, the person who is taking care of the patient at home, the one who is paying visits to the patient needs to document everything about the patient.
This sheet includes the details of the patient, his diagnosis, and symptoms on an everyday basis. It also includes the vital record of the patient and tells us all about the care that he is receiving in any form. This helps in tracking and assessing the progress of the patient if any. It also helps the health professional to take further steps in healthcare if needed.
