Postpartum Home Health Visit
After you've had a baby at Mary Lanning Healthcare, you may receive a visit from a Home Health nurse skilled in nursery or postpartum care. Arrange an appointment before you leave the hospital, and the Home Health nurse from Mary Lanning Healthcare will visit 24- to 48-hours after your dismissal. New moms find this especially valuable as they often have questions about the baby and infant care after returning home. The nurse will spend between 30 and 60 minutes, answering questions and ensuring you and your baby are recovering well.
If you live outside the Mary Lanning Home Health visitation area, we will arrange a followup via telephone, or will arrange for a visit by a home health agency located in your area. (A visitation fee may apply if the follow-up visit is made by an independent home health agency.)
