Frequently Asked Questions
- Why Should Eye Care Should be Delivered in a Nursing Setting?
When an individual becomes a resident of a skilled nursing facility, transportation out of the facility for medical care can be difficult, expensive, and sometimes dangerous. Whenever possible, it is probably best to have the individual’s medical care delivered entirely within the facility.
- How is Medical Error Reduced with Mobile Care?
Mobile nursing home eye care ensures that record keeping is more complete. Outside physician offices often return only minimal documentation of the service rendered and plan of care. This increases the possibility of medical errors, the institution of incorrect orders, and follow-up care not being delivered as planned. Also, the outside physician often does not have access to the patient’s complete medical history and record, may not be aware of the patient’s full medical status, or of other attending medical professionals pertinent data on file.
- Why is Mobile Examination Equipment More Appropriate?
Many nursing home residents have moderate to severe physical limitations that may prevent them from utilizing traditional examination equipment or examination techniques. Mobile examination equipment is designed specifically to be used with these types of patients.
- How Does Environment Impact a Successful Eye Exam?
Residents are more relaxed in familiar surroundings where the personnel are accustomed to the resident’s personal preferences and habits.
