Scenario 6 Health Status Monitoring (HomeCare)
Health Status Monitoring
Elizabeth was hospitalized and bed-ridden after she suffered from stroke. Rehabilitation did not help much in the first few weeks as she felt very uncomfortable, restless and sleepless in the hospital. After discussing with the doctor-in-charge, her family members decided to bring her home by working closely with the family doctor whose clinic was located within the neighbourhood. The doctor convinced the family members to make use of VandaCare. VandaCare assured the family members that Elizabeth’s health conditions were being monitored closely while rehabilitation efforts were being pursued. After several months of intensive rehabilitation care, Elizabeth managed to recover and resumed normal daily activities.
