Specialized Programs

Enhanced Bladder Training (Bladder Scanner)
The Methodist Home is one of only a few facilities that use a non-invasive bladder scanner to assess patients with urological conditions. This enables medical staff to make important decisions regarding discontinuation of Foley catheter use and other related care.

IV Therapy
On-site PICC Line/Midline insertion and administration of IV hydration and antibiotics.

Respiratory Care
The Respiratory Care Program continues to expand to meet the increasingly complex respiratory needs of our community. Program features include BiPAP and CPAP Therapy, Oxygen Saturation Monitoring, Nebulization Therapy, Tracheostomy Care, on-site ENT Consultation, and on-call respiratory therapists.

Stroke Care Management
The program provides rehabilitation services (under the guidance of a physiatrist), neurology consultation (as needed) and weekly interdisciplinary reviews.

A full interdisciplinary team approach starts with a "Nursing and Rehabilitation Assessment" that gives special consideration to: type of stroke and associated complications and risk factors, speech-language pathology and dysphagia assessment, pain management, weight/nutritional assessments and intervention, mood assessment and Activities of Daily Living (ADL) function.

Rehabilitation Services (physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech-language pathology) include interventions for tone and spasticity control, strength and motor control, sensory retraining, coordination, visual/perceptual status assessment and intervention, postural retraining and positioning.

Wound Care
The Methodist Home offers an aggressive approach to wound care that starts with a comprehensive evaluation for treatment of chronic wounds.

Advanced physical medicine modalities may include electrical stimulation, ultrasound and pulsed lavage to increase circulation and facilitate granulation, promoting faster wound closure.

The Wound Management Program is designed for those individuals with new or chronic wounds stemming from a variety of clinical conditions such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Venous Insufficiency
  • Arterial Insufficiency
  • Neurotropic Ulcers
  • Non-healing Surgical Ulcers
  • Pressure Ulcers
