Infusion Therapy
CHCS nursing professionals provide you with support and assistance with short and long-term antibiotic, hydration, and/or nutrition therapy. Nurses also provide individual assessment and education for patients requiring feeding tubes.  They will work with families and physicians to support these treatments. 

Telehealth services provide an extra measure of monitoring on days that the nurse does not visit.
Telehealth is a service that CHCS uses to improve patients' health care by monitoring their conditions on days that a nurse is not visiting. There are many benefits to Telehealth services.   Telehealth allows CHCS to identify early signs of trouble, institute treatment, and prevent unnecessary hospitalizations.  It allows CHCS communication to keep physicians updated on their patients' conditions.

Interactive Telehealth sessions make patients informed consumers, increasing their confidence and ultimately, improving their independence and quality of life.

Wound Care
CHCS provides wound care based on best practices for surgical and non-surgical wounds.

CHCS provides state-of-the-art wound care management with consultation of a nurse practitioner, who is a certified wound specialist.  CHCS uses enhanced digital photography to assess and advance treatment of the wound to enhance patient comfort and reduce healing time.

Wounds may be surgical or non-surgical.  Non-surgical wounds may include bed sores, skin ulcers, or traumatic injuries.  CHCS nurses work with the wound specialist and physicians to provide personalized wound care.
