Preferred continues to differentiate itself from other home care providers by employing full-time respiratory therapists who are dedicated to providing educational and clinical support to all nursing staff and families. Our therapists are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our training varies, from oxygen administration to tracheostomy care and ventilator management.
Additionally, prior to meeting our clients, many of Preferred’s nurses are educated on each client’s specific needs, with instructions and evaluations performed by one of our therapists before nurses are placed with these clients.
Lastly, members of our respiratory team are involved in the discharge planning process of clients where respiratory therapies are applied. Our therapists are present on discharge day to ensure a safe transition from the hospital or facility into the client’s home.
