Apex Home Health Care, Inc. now offers Psychiatric Nursing visits and consultative visits by a Wound,
Ostomy, Continence nurse (WOCN).
Psychiatric Nursing visits under the Apex Behavioral Health Program will provide support to patients who
have behavioral health diagnoses such as schizophrenia and manic-depressive disorder. The Psych
nurse will monitor medication compliance to reduce hospitalization rates, provide crisis intervention, provide
supportive counseling and instruct on coping skills and stress management. The Psych nurse develops
a comprehensive, holistic, patient-centered plan of care while coordinating with the primary care physician
and/or psychiatrist regarding the patient’s condition.
