Use Psych Nursing To Improve Patient Care And Your Profit Margin. Mental Health Management Is More Important Than Ever To Keep Patients Safe In The The Home Where They Want To Be!

Specialty ServicesThere is a shortage of almost every type of specialty nurse today. This is true in home health specialty services. To improve patient care and boost bottom line, market what makes you different and better. Hiring top talent in psych nursing and developing a streamlined psych program makes you elite.  

Special Care Is Needed With Mental Illness:  

Mental illness needs specialized care. Don’t assume every nurse can effectively handle this type of care without specialized training. If you wouldn’t do that with other specialty services, then why consider it with mental illness?  This is even more complex in patients with both mental and physical illness. This patient needs special consideration formulating a care plan. Someone who suffers from mental illness may be able to manage self-care when stable but need a completely different type of care with an exacerbation of mental illness.   

Psych Nurses Will Enhance Care From Other Nurses: 

The point of a specialty RN is not to minimize the education or expertise of the RN, but to differentiate the training. A psych nurse can better develop a care plan balancing the mental with the physical considerations. Your patient census may consist of certain mental health categories of illness. Are you in an area with a large pediatric mental health hospital? Are you near dual-diagnosis treatment centers? This means a higher population of those with both substance abuse and mental illness issues. If so, then this makes a big difference which psych nurse you add to your staff. In the end, adding one or more psych nurses to your homecare team will improve patient outcomes (of psych patients) and boost this type of referral which can lead to increased profitability.
