Beyond the Emergency Department

Emergency signMany people who visit the Emergency Department could use some follow-up care at home once they are discharged. Mercy Home Health helps provide that care—which may help them avoid another trip to the Emergency Department or a future hospital stay.

Mercy Home Health offers programs to patients who might have been in the Emergency Department because of a wound that is not healing properly, an injury from a fall, complications from chronic illnesses like diabetes or high blood pressure, or even a reaction to a new medication.

“We bring the care to you,” says Rose Riggio, RN, Nurse Manager for the Emergency Department Liaisons. Going home after an Emergency Department visit can be stressful. Mercy Home Health gives patients and their families peace of mind, knowing that a registered nurse is coming to their home to ensure they are on the right path to healing.
