At Premier Visiting Nurse we specialize in cancer care and provide the expertise to support the oncology (cancer) patient on their journey to wellness. Now patients who have been diagnosed with cancer can be cared for in the surroundings where they feel most comfortable and where they most want to be – at home. Premier Visiting Nurse has developed a unique, multidisciplinary approach to home health care for patients with a cancer diagnosis. Our specialized care team focuses on supporting a patient in the home because we believe cancer patients deserve the same level of specialty attention at home that they receive in other health care settings. Our staff has the specialized training and expertise to deliver highly skilled care, anticipate and recognize needs, provide prompt intervention if problems arise and help decrease hospitalizations.
Our nurses have specific training and education in oncology. Many of them have experience in providing cancer care and know how to guide patients through difficult clinical and emotional issues. The director of Oncology Services is a designated Oncology Certified Nurse (OCN). She keeps our staff informed on state-of-the-art changes in the delivery of cancer care and ensures that our patients are provided the most current and advanced home care treatment. The Oncology Director is also available for consultation on complex patient care needs and side effect management.
