Each account at Patient Care America has its own Patient Care Team. The Patient Care Team consists of the account’s NutriRite™ Specialist, their Patient Care Intake Coordinator, our Nursing staff, our Licensed Pharmacists, and our Warehouse team. Each account is provided with contact information to reach their Patient Care Team for questions, requests, or information.
Our registered dietitians, nurses and pharmacists provide their expert advice in helping to identify and assess those patients that are most suitable candidates based on guidelines for qualification. With the help of our clinical staff, Patient Care America works with your physicians and dietitians to ensure that the most effective formulation is compounded to satisfy your patient’s nutritional needs. We offer convenient delivery of all necessary therapy equipment and supplies directly to the dialysis center for in center hemodialysis or to the patient’s home for home hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis.
Patient Care America partners with dialysis centers by providing in-service training to dialysis nurses by our licensed nurses. Our nurses support dialysis centers for patient starts, therapy administration, and review all guidelines with the center’s clinicians, including the IDPN Clinician Manual. They walk through the entire therapeutic process and educate both the clinic and the patient to ensure a positive experience. Nurses are always available by phone for follow up questions from the clinic staff if the need arises.
In-service nurses are also available for IPN starts either in person or on the phone with either the patient or PD nurse. Additionally, our licensed pharmacists follow up with each account, specifically the renal dietitian, to monitor the patient’s wellbeing on NutriRite™. Because each NutriRite™ formulation is unique to the patient’s prescription, pharmacists will make adjustments to the formula if necessary to improve nutritional outcomes. This partnership between our pharmacists and renal dietitians serves to optimize patient care.
