Fall Prevention and Home Safety

A Multidisciplinary Approach: Falls are predictable and preventable.

Our Focus on Falls Program incorporates evidence-based best practice to develop each individual plan to reduce the risk of falls. Upon a physician’s referral, we administer a Fall Risk Assessment to determine personal needs and create an individualized care plan.

The Focus on Falls program goals include:

Reducing the risk of falls and injuries by identifying home fall hazard areas Improving one’s quality of life by enabling them to stay at home. Regaining safe mobility quickly through exercises, PT or OT therapies and education.

To learn more about Focus on Falls from Visiting Nurse Service, call 585.787.2233.

The VNS Telehealth Services Program


 

We updated our Telehealth Services Program to provide the best care for your patients through the use of the most current technology. We are helping improve patient outcomes.

Our Telehealth program helps clinicians monitor objective patient data on a daily basis and adjust medications or care plans for those with heart failure, hypertension, diabetes, and other complex cases.

Benefits to your patient:

  • The program is free of chage
  • These small, easy-to-use devices are set up in the home and are designed to patients' specific medical conditions
  • Plugs into an electrical outlet 
  • Takes just a few minutes each day to take measurements; data is quickly and quietly transmitted to the VNS Telehealth Nurse. A home Internet connection is not necessary.

Benefits to physicians:

  • Early detection of complications means earlier intervention  
  • Decreased hospitalizations and Emergency Room visits
  • Improved patient quality of life
  • Promotion of disease and self-management
  • Increased patient and caregiver satisfaction
