The intricacy of a patient's medical condition and required course of treatment determine whether care should be provided by an RN or can provide by an LPN.

Detailed Business Description
Home health care assists a person in their recovery from an illness, accident, surgery, or change in their medical condition. Professional health care and rehabilitation services are delivered in a person's home environment under the direction of their personal physician.
Because it is not always clear to the average person when an ailing senior needs home health care and when he or she needs nursing home care, it is usually best to consult a medical professional for advice.
Often when physicians or hospital staff says "Home Health", they mean that the skills of a healthcare professional, like a registered nurse or therapist, are still needed after your hospitalization to provide continued assistance with your recovery. This might be to continue intravenous antibiotics you have been receiving draw blood, assess a surgical site, change wound dressings, continue to assist you with mobility, assess your progress, or provide other services that your physician has ordered for you
