What is it Like to Work in Patient Homes?

We’re glad you asked!

Lots of clinicians who work in medical offices, hospitals and other locations wonder what it would be like to enter a patient’s home to provide care. We get it. It’s different, for sure. You can be so much more effective as a nurse when visiting patients in their home environments. We hear it over and over from nurses formerly in hospital or clinical settings.

Learn more about working in patient homes.

Autonomy

When you work in patient homes, you use your own clinical judgment to determine what your patient needs. Sometimes, it’s a request from the primary care doctor to change a prescription. Sometimes, it’s education on diabetes management or heart health. It’s you with your patient, one on one!

More Fulfilling Patient Relationships

When you’re caring for a patient in their home, you can watch their progression over time, helping them recover from surgery, build their strength, or, in the case of hospice patients, helping make their final days as easy and meaningful as possible in the comfort of their own homes. What could be more fulfilling?

Eyes on Patients’ Home Lives

When you visit patients in their homes, they’re much more at ease. And you can see how they’re able to implement the health and safety instructions they’ve been given. Everything from diet to family dynamics are right before you – you don’t need to simulate or describe possible situations and hope they can apply your instructions in their homes. If you’re a hospice clinician, you can see them surrounded by their children and pets and bring them even more comfort through your skills and resources.
