Home Health

The Ridgecrest Regional Hospital Home Health Agency is dedicated to providing healthcare in the place where patients are the most comfortable … their homes. Presently, the Home Health Agency is located at 1653 Triangle Drive (the building just north of the Ridgecrest Cinemas).  

 

RRH is proud to offer home care services through its licensed, accredited, and Medicare-Certified Home Health Agency. Staffed with qualified RN’s, certified Home Health Aides, Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapists, and a licensed Clinical Social Worker, the Agency provides skilled nursing, personal care, terminal care, therapy and counseling services. High-tech IV therapy and wound care management are examples of procedures now performed in the home. RRH Home Health Services accepts both in-town and out- of-town physician referrals for home care.

These at-home services allow patients to leave the hospital earlier, remain in their homes longer and maintain independence while receiving quality care. Registered and specially trained nurses, home health aides, therapists and specialists work in teams to provide comprehensive care for those who need additional assistance to live at home. Under the direction of the patient’s physician, the home care staff members visit the patient at home to carry out a plan of care for the purpose of restoring and maintaining the highest possible level of health, function and comfort.
