The home health staff at the local
health department developed standard protocols for the treatment of
patients with congestive health failure, chronic lung disease and
other respiratory conditions. Implementation of these measures
yielded significant improvement in patients' condition, exceeding
both state and national averages. Other home health agencies are now
beginning to adopt the protocols.
The Logan County Health Department
has operated its Home Health Division for over 20 years, offering
skilled nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech
therapy, bathing and personal care assistance, catheter care,
dressing changes, injections, and respite care to patients within a
50-mile radius of Lincoln.
