designed to help

The skilled nursing team at CVHCare is made up of Registered Nurses (RN) and Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVN). Our agency uses the case management model, in which an RN is put in charge of monitoring a patient’s overall care. In most cases, an RN will be the first visiting clinician to perform your overall assessment. In partnership with your primary care physician, the RN will then develop an individualized plan of care, focusing on your specific needs. Under the supervision of an RN, an LVN may assist with follow-up visits and treatment.

In addition to customized care and patient instruction for chronic disease management, our skilled nurses provide simple to complex wound therapy, post-surgical care, and ostomy care management. In ostomy care management our nurses help to maintain and teach you to care for an ostomy—the pouch system at a body opening, created by surgery, for removal of body wastes.
