May 19, 2011- As I reflect on my 38 years plus in the healthcare industry, including hospital administration and governing board responsibilities, I am encouraged by the support available and professionally administered through the resources of home care agencies .
I take this opportunity to personally thank the owner and staff of Absolute Home Care for providing professional assistance during a scheduled home care visit. The results of this scheduled visit, coupled with direct communication with my wife's primary care physician, resulted in expediting the admission of my wife with a diagnosis requiring major surgery.
Their intervention with the primary care physician, as a result of a scheduled home care visit, the waiting time for the scheduled appoitment with my wife's primary care physician was changed to the same day instead of five days. The primary care physician immediately diagnosed my wife's medical condition which resulted in a direct admission to the hospital. Subsequent tests confirmed the need for major surgery.
