Hi it’s Patrik Hutzel from www.intensivecareathome.com.au where we provide tailor made solutions for long-term ventilated Adults& Children with Tracheostomy by improving their Quality of life and where we also provide tailor made solutions to hospitals and Intensive Care Units to save money and resources, whilst providing Quality Care!
In last week’s BLOG I asked the question
You can check out last week’s blog here.
In this week’s blog I want to share that
”INTENSIVE CARE AT HOME ACHIEVED ACCREDITATION AGAIN AND REMAINS THE FIRST AND ONLY ACCREDITED AND CERTIFIED INTENSIVE HOME CARE SERVICE PROVIDER IN AUSTRALIA AS OF AUGUST 2015!”
Standards and certification in health care are extremely important!
As most of you are aware, hospitals and Intensive Care Units have to go through mandatory accreditation in order to maintain standards and quality and also to attract funding, Patients and credibility!
In order to bring standards and quality in the still relatively new world of Intensive Home Care (in Australia) for long-term ventilated adults& children with tracheostomies, INTENSIVE CARE AT HOME has now for the 2nd time since we first started our service, achieved accreditation!
It shows that we are committed to quality and it shows that we are committed to work with proven policies and procedures that keep our Clients out of Intensive Care and in fact facilitate an earlier discharge from ICU, creating win-win situations for Patients, Families, Intensive Care Units and health funding agencies who can save up to $ 2,000 per bed day.
And they can do so confidently, since we have proven that our system works and that long-term ventilated adults& children with tracheostomies don’t have to stay in ICU for many weeks and many months on end!
It also shows that we are putting our money where our mouth is and that we live and breathe our mission and vision!
So far, our Clients have had zero readmissions back to Intensive Care!
Our concept and care model is based on successful models of Intensive Home Care nursing for long-term ventilated Patients with tracheostomies in Germany that I have personally worked with before starting this service!
The concept of Intensive Home Care for long-term ventilated adults& children with tracheostomies has been around in Germany for nearly 20 years and Australian Intensive Care Units are lagging 20 years behind when it comes to the care and treatment of long-term ventilated adults& children with tracheostomies, by keeping them in Intensive Care for way too long and by wasting hundreds of thousands if not Millions of dollars $$$ of tax payers money!
Besides, long-term ventilated adults& children with tracheostomies suffer tremendously by not having any quality of life in Intensive Care and their Families put their lives on hold while having their loved one in Intensive Care!
We can therefore confidently say that INTENSIVE CARE AT HOME provides a genuine alternative to a long-term stay in Intensive Care for long-term ventilated adults& children with tracheostomies!
At this point in time INTENSIVE CARE AT HOME remains the first and only accredited Intensive Home Care service who is accredited and certified to provide Intensive Home Care nursing for long-term ventilated adults& children with tracheostomies.
The scope of our accreditation includes the “Delivery of Intensive Care Nursing Services at Home including Services to Ventilated Patients”
