Patient Compliance Policy
LQHHCS requires the patient to be receptive to home care services
Must be willing to accept patient care services
Must not be combative, nor verbally or physically abusive to the caregiver
Must allow the care giver to perform his/her duties
As time progresses, a patient's mental condition may worsen. In cases where the patient's behavior becomes a safety concern for themselves and / or the caregiver, the patient must have a medical evaluation. Medical evaluation may involve counseling to increase coping skills and recognizing stress triggers, and /or may include mediations that help with aggressive or anxious behavior. If the patient's behavior progresses to where patient's and / or caregiver's safety cannot be achieve, LQHHCS may terminate services for unsafe working conditions.
