Handbook for Home Health Aide Training. Revised Edition.
Oklahoma State Dept. of Education, Oklahoma City.
The home health aide is a member of a team which provides home health care services, usually a part of the overall health services furnished by the local county health department. She does those things which are required to maintain normal physical and emotional comfort and to help the patient toward independent living in his own home, working under the supervision of a registered nurse and other therapist and following the nursing plan made by the public health nurse. The goals of home health aide training are to provide the aide with basic nursing skills, to train her in the use of equipment needed for patient care, to help her plan her work, and to teach her to record information needed by doctor and nurse. Subjects covered in the training program include the approach to patients and their families, home management, food, basic nursing skills, procedures and treatment, and planning and organizing patient care.
