VNA Nursing

There's no place like home. That's why thousands of Rhode Islanders turn to the VNA of Care New England for compassionate, high-quality home health care. Our nurses care for patients with a wide range of conditions and injuries, from skilled nursing, including cardiac care and diabetes care, to rehabilitative therapy, including physical, occupational and speech language therapy, to hospice and palliative care. Under the direction of a physician, our skilled nurses work closely with patients and families to meet their physical, mental and emotional needs. Our Nurses:

  • Assess patient needs.
  • Teach patients and family members about their medications, disease processes, and appropriate treatment.
  • Help assess wound healing and coordinate quality care to optimize healing.
  • Conduct post-operative assessments and monitor patient’s progress and needs.

For certain diagnoses, technology such as Telehealth can monitor weight, blood pressure, pulse and oxygenation on a daily basis, alerting the nurse for any needed intervention to prevent hospitalization.
