home care. "basically what our clinicians do is they prepare for our patients like they would prepare for their own families. not only with vehicles and with the salt, but also reminding them, you know, do you have your medications; do you have the supplies that you need? do you have enough food in the home? do you know how to contact people if you did have a problem? " the clinicians will also make sure each patient has enough food in their home and all their communication devices are charged.during storms, clinicians will wear yak-tracks for traction on the ice and salt walkways to the patients home. "many times they get there and they can't get to the door. they have been known to do shoveling and everything else to get to our patients. but the salt is really a nice safety factor because it not only protects our workers but it protects everyone that goes in and out of that home." with safety in mind, mercy home care makes sure their patients are cared for in all weather conditions. kayla novak siouxland news.
