A home health care provider may refer a patient to emergency care when this is the best way to treat the patient\\\'s current condition. However, some emergency care may be avoided if the home health staff is doing a good job at checking your health condition to detect problems early. They also need to check how well you are eating, drinking, and taking your medicines, and how safe your home is. Home health staff must coordinate your care. This involves communicating regularly with you, your informal caregivers, your doctor, and anyone else who provides care for you.
