The nurces were all good at wound care, However beware of the nurse whose name starts with an "S", as she is the best Hoodwinker I have ever met.

Community Home Health is good if you only need help with personal care, but if you are looking for a home health company that does more than personal care like help cleaning your home, dressing changes, or someone to sit with a patient for any amount of time community is not the right place for you. I do know that some times they are not reliable when it comes to the nurses doing there jobs.
