Coghill article addresses patient care for homebound patients

Jeffrey Coghill of ECU’s Laupus Library and Robin Pierce, a physical therapist with Gentiva Home Health, co-authored “Aortic Stenosis in the Home Care Setting,” which appeared in The Quarterly Report of the Home Health Section of the American Physical Therapy Association’s newsletter, Fall 2011, No. 47, Issue

From the home health physical therapist’s point of view, the article outlines how to approach care for home bound patients who present with aortic stenosis.  The article addresses consideration of questions such as: Is the patient a candidate for heart valve repair?  Have they recently had aortic valve replacement?  Do they need continued education on how to care for themselves at home?  Are their medications being taken on a timely basis?  Is the medication regimen working?  Can exercise be introduced to the patient to improve his overall health?  Might this patient need a hospice referral?

    is minimal. This could be the one who helped you get the boat to show them appreciation. Another negative, a minimum of for me, is the editing leaves
