I am a PTA and Director of Patient Care for a new Home Health Agency. I have several years experience in skilled nursing facilites, but only PRN experience in Home Health. The PTs that we have contracted to do our evals have worked in the outpatient setting for years.
Could anyone help us out and give me some examples of some commonly used goals for home health. I know we have to focus a lot on safety and mobility within the home. But my PTs are writing goals for
~Ambulation 300 feet with AD, independently and no gait deficits.
Well when someone is truely homebound, that could be a difficult goal to reach is they can't exit the home.
I would really appreciate any advice and/or examples
