You have to stay in hospital for an operation or medical monitoring? You and your loved ones are worried? Our team of liaison nurses can help you during and after your stay.
Our liaison nurses undoubtedly offer an essential link between stationary healthcare environments and healthcare at home. Their role is to pass on information on the follow-up care of the client concerned. This between the teams at the hospitals and the home care and support network. The Stëftung Hëllef Doheem Foundation is Luxembourg’s first healthcare network to establish a reliable and rapid connection with hospitals, thanks to its liaison nurses.
Through this liaison, we can care for our current and future clients even better.
A liaison nurse takes care of the follow steps for you:
With the specialists
- She is a direct link to the social workers from the hospital or healthcare sector
- She takes part in interdisciplinary service meetings (with doctors, occupational therapists, geriatric nurses, etc.)
- She coordinates the necessary prescriptions with the doctors and carers
With the clients and/or their families
- She suggests the number of home visits by Hëllef Doheem carers after the hospital stay and organises any other necessary support
- She provides information on the possible costs of any care/treatment (care/treatment and cover by the care insurance and/or the National Health Fund (CNS))
With the network of home carers
- She keeps in touch during the hospital stay
- She draws up a report for the transfer from hospital to home, she collects the necessary paperwork (prescriptions, doctor’s certificates etc.)
- She notifies and organises the foundation’s other help and care services for the person in question (e.g. help with housework, night duty, palliative care, Sécher Doheem)
