Public Health Nursing Services
The mission of Public Health Nursing Services are to care for people of their community, monitor and prevent the spread of disease, prevent premature death and educate the community on how to care for themselves and others. We provide primary and secondary measures to obtain these goals. Public Health Nurses are expected to abide by the Public Health District Policies as well as state and federal regulations.
Home Health Services
Eligibility for Public Health Home Nursing visits include proof of residency, the need for service, physician’s orders, and no other nursing service being utilized. Referrals are taken and an evaluation visit is completed. The nurses perform wellness checks to help residents to remain in their home as long as possible with independence and dignity. These services include, but are not limited to, blood pressure monitoring, respiratory checks, safety and nutrition counseling, and medication management. No client is seen on a daily basis. To inquire about home nursing visits, please contact the Public Health Nursing Department at the South Stickney Township site.
