Skilled Care Step Down Services During the Time of COVID-19

this is an image with lots of text on it. the text explains a program called "Fast Track Home" that provides step down skilled nursing care to people in their own homes during COVID-19

In the spring of 2020, when skilled nursing facilities were not always able to admit new patients, Goodwin House Home Health offered a new solution. Our “Fast Track Home” program delivers skilled care to patients in their own homes:

  • Available to patients opting to recover at home during the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Care initiated within 24 hours of receiving home health orders and discharge paperwork, including weekends and holiday admissions
  • Up to 10 skilled nursing visits in first 14 days (as needed/applicable)
  • Will deliver therapy (PT/OT/ST as ordered by the physician) with a frequency of up to five visits per week for the first 14 days after discharge (as needed/applicable)
  • Will provide a Home Health Aide to assist with bathing, dressing and basic grooming needs several times per week
  • Led by our non-profit mission, we are committed to bear the financial burden of reimbursements that fall short during this time

Our experienced and compassionate team is ready to help you. Call 703-824-1390 to inquire about Goodwin House Home Health.
