How TLC HomeCare Focuses on Client Medication Safety

Nurse case oversight is one of our primary tools for medication safety.  A certified nurse oversees every client providing consistency in care and clarity.  Our nurse case managers communicate with you or your loved one’s medical care team to ensure everyone is on the same page when it comes to medications and health conditions.

Our nurses are with you every step of the way.  They check in periodically and review your case during transitions such as moving from a nursing home or hospital to home.  Medications lists should be checked frequently especially when there is a change in primary care providers or new conditions develop. Building relationships with everyone on the care team including the primary care provider ensures every aspect of care is covered.  Collaboration with doctors and everyone involved, especially during transitions, is important to understanding how to provide the right care at the right time.
