Hi, it’s Patrik Hutzel from intensivecareathome.com where we provide tailor-made solutions for long-term ventilated adults and children with tracheostomies and where we also provide tailor-made solutions for hospitals and intensive care units whilst providing quality services for long-term ventilated adults and children with tracheostomies and medically complex patients at home including Home TPN (total parenteral nutrition), Home IV potassium infusions, Home BIPAP (bilevel positive airway pressure) and CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) ventilation, as well as IV antibiotics. We also provide home services for tracheostomy clients that are not ventilated, and we also provide IV antibiotics at home, palliative care at home, port management, central line management, PICC (peripherally inserted central catheter) line management, as well as Hickman’s line management.
Now, most blogs here that I send out and that I make are for ventilated clients at home or for families that have loved ones in ICU that want to go home. Today’s blog is slightly different. Today’s blog is directed towards hospital executives as well as emergency departments in hospital.
So currently, we are providing emergency department bypasses for the Western Sydney Local Area Health District. So basically, we send critical care nurses into people’s homes, but also into aged care facilities. We basically provide a service that keeps patients out of the emergency department by doing things like catheter changes, SPC changes (Suprapubic Catheter changes), nasogastric tube changes, tracheostomy troubleshooting or changes.
We also do assessments for those patients so that they can stay at home and don’t overflow your emergency department. So, it’s much more cost-effective to do that at home, but it’s also much more patient and family friendly.
But also, what does it mean for your hospital? You don’t want your emergency department overrun. So, not only can we keep your intensive care unit, we can free up the beds in your intensive care unit, we can also keep your emergency department empty, and we can treat those patients at home.
So, if you want the same service for your hospital and for your emergency department, please reach out to us. We can help you with our critical care nurses to keep your ED empty. Please contact us here at intensivecareathome.com. Call us on one of the numbers on the top of our website or simply send us an email to [email protected].
But also, we know you’ve got the bed blocks in your ICU, we can help you with that as well, especially for long-term ventilated adults and children with tracheotomies, but also for patients with tracheostomies that are not ventilated, BIPAP, CPAP ventilation, the list goes on.
Now, with Intensive Care at Home, we are currently operating all around Australia and all major capital cities as well as in regional and rural areas. We are an NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) approved service provider. We are a TAC (Transport Accident Commission) approved service provider in Victoria, NIISQ (National Injury Insurance Scheme in Queensland), as well as iCare approved service provider in New South Wales, as well as the DVA (Department of Veteran Affairs) approved service provider all around the country. We have also received funding through public hospitals, departments of health, as well as through private health funds.
So please, reach out to us if you need help and if you have a loved one in intensive care and you want to go home or you want your loved one at home, please reach out to us as well. If you’re in the U.S. or in the U.K. and you need help, we can help you there privately. Please reach out to us as well.
We are also providing Level 2 and Level 3 NDIS Specialist Support Coordination, if you need help with that. We are also providing NDIS nursing assessments if you need help.
If you are an NDIS Support Coordinator watching this and you need help with your NDIS participants, especially with nursing care or NDIS nursing assessment, so you need help with the funding side of things, you don’t know how to advocate with the NDIS for nursing care, we can help you with that.
If you are a critical care nurse and you’re looking for a career change, we want to hear from you if you have worked for a minimum of two years in critical care ICU, pediatric ICU, or ED, and if you ideally have completed a postgraduate critical care qualification, we want to hear from you.
We currently have jobs in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, in Albury, Wodonga on the new South Wales Victorian border, in Bendigo, and in Country Victoria, as well as in Warragul Country, Victoria. We want to hear from you.
If you want to work for us, we want people that are really committed because our clients want consistency. They don’t want people coming and going. So, only reach out to us if you’re really serious working with us, if you want to make a difference, if you want to want to build relationships with our clients, it’s very client-centric what we do.
Please do not apply if you want to work for an agency. If you want to come and go, that’s not going to work for us and our clients. Our clients want consistency, and they want the same people over and over again and that’s only fair. We need to pay attention to what our clients want. So please, only consider us as an option if you’re not looking for agency work because we are not an agency. We are a service provider that has a tailor-made solution for our clients, and there’s a big, big difference between an agency and us.
If you’re an intensive care specialist, we’re currently expanding our medical team as well. We know you have bed blocks in your ICU or in your pediatric ICU, and then I encourage you to reach out to us as well.
We can help you eliminate your bed blocks by taking your patients at home safely, which also includes palliative care for some patients.
