Getting Started

If you or someone you know could benefit from Public Health Nursing assistance, start by submitting a Public Health Nursing Referral Form to our office. Once received, our nurses contact the referred individual to offer services.

If PH Nursing services are accepted, a nurse will make an in-home visit and perform a comprehensive needs assessment of individuals and the family as a whole. The needs assessment typically takes about one hour, though can take longer.

The needs assessment allows the nurse to develop a specific care plan which may include:

  • Referrals for medical care and related resources
  • Nutrition assessment and referrals
  • Service coordination
  • Health counseling
  • Wellness program referrals
  • Breastfeeding and postpartum depression referrals and support
  • Medically fragile infant home visitation
  • New baby care and growth and development information
