At FirstLantic Healthcare we strive to provide peace of mind to our clients, patients and their loved ones by caring for them with compassion, dignity, and a commitment to clinical excellence. All of our caregivers go through a rigorous hiring process and are all licensed and/or certified. Further, all of our caregivers are supervised by a registered nurse to ensure the highest quality of care at all times.
For Hourly Home Healthcare, we conduct an initial assessment by a qualified healthcare professional to determine the type of home healthcare services you will require to best meet your needs. If you are a Medicare recipient, we will consult with your physician to determine the type of home health services you will need for your specific medical condition.
Our office hours are 8:00am-5:00pm Monday through Friday. After hours, members of our staff are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
If you are a Medicare recipient, the frequency of your visits will be determined by your physician. For Hourly services, the frequency of your visits is based on your needs, and will be determined at your initial assessment.
All of our employees are screened through the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and Florida Abuse Registry. We also require personal and professional references. Additionally, our staff must past an oral and written exam, and attend a detailed orientation. All of our staff are licensed/certified in their respective fields of practice. Effective August 1, 2010, the State of Florida created uniform background screening requirements. This changed the screening and hiring process for health care providers, such as FirstLantic, licensed under Chapter 408, Part II, Florida Statutes. We are delighted to add fingerprinting to our process ensuring that our patients will have the highest quality care givers.
Clients may interview prospective caregivers before services are initiated. We carefully screen, hire and manage our caregivers to present you with the right person to meet your needs. Your satisfaction is our highest priority, therefore, if for any reason, a client desires a different caregiver, another one will be provided.
All of our caregivers go through a rigorous hiring process and are all licensed and/or certified. Our caregivers are supervised by our highly-trained, professional staff through continuous communication and supervisory visits.
