KORT Home Health Care is unique in their ability to provide a continuum of care from home to KORT outpatient care
Louisville, Kentucky (PRWEB) June 26, 2013
For Corydon resident Jim Elliott, the new KORT Home Health Care service made his recovery from shoulder surgery easier and faster.
“I was in quite a bit of pain when I came home from the hospital. KORT Home Health came to my house following my discharge from the hospital. The nurses were very courteous, attentive and extremely knowledgeable. It was a very positive experience for me,” said Elliott.
The KORT Home Health Care nurse worked with Elliott on pain management and the physical therapist began an exercise treatment program, according to Elliott.
“My home health care services continued for a few weeks, until I felt comfortable traveling in my car, then I continued physical therapy at a KORT outpatient clinic near my home,” he said. “Because of the quality of care and professionalism of the home health staff, I felt comfortable and confident continuing treatment with KORT.”
KORT Home Health Care is unique in their ability to provide a continuum of care from home to KORT outpatient care, said KORT Home Health Executive Shauneen Bouthilette, RN, MSN.
“The transition from home care to care at the KORT clinic was basically seamless. When I arrived at the outpatient clinic, the therapist knew how much progress I had made with KORT Home Health. Everyone was prepared to continue my road to recovery. With KORT, I knew I would be back where I needed to be. Everyone at KORT was really wonderful. They were sincere and genuinely invested in my recovery,” said Elliott.
