FAQ

When will the nurse see me?

After we verify the patient’s information and receive permission to provide care from a physician, the nurse will call and schedule a time that best fits for the patient and his/her family.

Can I keep my doctor and still have a doctor come to my home?

Absolutely. The patient is always allowed to keep their doctor. A visiting doctor can make it easy for the patient since they will come to the home and they can also consult with the patient’s primary doctor (with permission).

How long or often will the nurse (and/or therapists) visit me?

That varies based on the plan of care set up with the nurse and the physician. Home health is intended to monitor and educate a patient (or someone else in the home) on how to ensure a healthy and speedy recover. IF IT IS DETERMINED THAT A PATIENT’S HEALTH STATUS WILL LIKELY DECLINE AFTER A SKILLED SERVICE IS REMOVED, LIKE NURSING OR THERAPY, THERE IS NO LIMIT TO THE AMOUNT OF TIME THE PATIENT CAN RECEIVE SERVICES.

I am looking for someone to come out and help clean and maybe some light cooking.

DirectMed will only provides services if there is a skilled need such as a nurse or therapists. If there is a skilled needed and the nurse or social worker thinks that the patient has a need for assistance with cleaning and cooking, or similar task, they should contact our office and we will assist in locating resources.

What areas does DirectMed provide services?

Currently we provide services in the Chicago area, Cook County, DuPage County, Will County, Kane County, Kendall county and Grundy County.  If the patient is outside of these counties, we can assist in finding an agency for the patient.
