To further ensure the quality of care for your loved one, each of our client cases requiring in-home staff are supervised by a Registered Nurse (RN) as well as our Director of Nursing who carries more than 25 years of experience in specialized nursing care. We take every step to ensure that the care our clients receive is provided by employees of the highest possible caliber.
In order to create the most secure situation for both our client and employee, CareMaster places a heavy focus into the security and safety of each party through these steps:
Step 1: We scrutinize each employee’s criminal background for any signs of potential malice, including minor/misdemeanor charges
Step 2: We randomly drug screen all employees to ensure that our client’s safety is not jeopardized by an employee’s clouded judgment
Step 3: Our supervising nurses thoroughly inspect the client’s environment for any potential hazards that could cause harm to either party. Those nurses will also make recommendations as to how an environment can be made safer and more suitable for the client and employee.
Step 4: The supervisory nurse will create a Plan of Care which is specific to the client’s needs that also addresses the removal of seen hazards such as clutter as part of the employee’s duties in the home. Those duties are set to be performed by the employee with a frequency set forth by the supervising nurse.
By adhering to our time-tested policies and procedures, CareMaster Medical Services is able to provide our clients with the highest level of safety and security available in the home care industry. Our clients are our #1 priority 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
