When it comes to our patients'
health, we know that our care and focus is needed seven days a week. Using the
conventional pre-planned nursing schedule alone does not provide the time and
attention needed to fully care for a patient. Symptoms can arise at any
moment, and with many conditions, a matter of hours can mean the difference
between staying home or going to the hospital. A patient could be doing just
fine during a scheduled visit, only to become symptomatic when the nurse
walks out the door. So what is the significance
of a home visit at 2:30 on Thursday afternoon? It could be minimal, or it could be drastic.
Now HomeCall has the means to know each and every day.
The Honeywell HomMed Home
Monitoring System provides users the best of both worlds: the comfort and
independence of staying at home and the security of daily monitoring and
proper medical attention.
The monitor works by recording a
number of vital signs, including:
A number of peripherals can also
be added to better customize the monitor to an individual's specific
The benefits of the Honeywell HomMed monitor can
be effectively applied to almost any condition, including:
Heart Failure (CHF)
Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)
Artery Disease (CAD)
A voice prompts the patient to begin
taking his or her vital signs and continues to guide the patient throughout
the entire process. The patient is then asked questions specific to his or
her condition. When the process is complete, the monitor takes care of the
rest. The results are immediately sent to our nurses station where they are
analyzed by our professional nursing staff. Data trends are observed, and
any developing symptoms can be identified much quicker than relying on just
a pre-planned visitation schedule. The proper treatment can then be
administered promptly and effectively. Sometimes hours can mean the difference
between staying at home and a costly trip to the ER or hospital.
What is the significance of Thursday
afternoon at 2:30? Maybe not much at all. What is the significance of daily
home monitoring? Our eyes on your health everyday. Symptoms don't follow a
pre-planned visitation schedule, so why should we rely on one?
