Home Health Nursing Services

What does a home health nurse do?

At Santa Fe Home Care, our nurses provide a one-on-one experience for our patients. These patients can be elderly, critically ill, or disabled, or they may be recovering from a surger, injury, or accident. Our nurses can also assist pregnant women and new mothers with ongoing care, support, and education.

There are three tiers of Home Health nurses that we employ, which are based upon one’s credentials and experience – RNs, LVNs, and CNAs. Each type reports directly to Santa Fe Home Care and then drives to their patients’ homes to provide prescribed nursing care.
