Q.My mother was sent home from the hospital 'ith a catheter. The doctor didn't exllain an;thing much about it to me. He just said to bring her back to the hospital if she has any problems, it's such a long way for us to take her to the hospital. Is there any way that a nurse could come to the house to check on her every so often? .. A. The Sumn.ers County Health Department is not funded to provide Home Health Care. Home llealth Care for Summers County, skilled nur- sing care and personal care is supposed to be provided through the Regional Health Council ( O119) out of its Beckley office. A physician's referral is required for this service. ..llowever, it seems that this Home ltalth Services Program has not been well publicised in the county. Few people know about it and many of the doctors themselves have not been made ware of it. If you. think that you or someone you now could use mis service, ask your doctor to make a referral to Darrell Moore at the Health council office in Beckley. Phone 252- 8531. ..Summers Countians will not get the home health services we deserve unless we get our doctors to ask for them. If you know of anyone else who has need of these services be sure to tell r them how they can obtain them. Perhaps they have been discharged from the hospital but still require .some skilled nursing care )dressing 'changes, catheter care injections, etc.,) Perhaps they are chronically ill and require periodic care at home. If so, they should see that a physicians request is made for home Health care services for them. 'again the number to call is in Beckley, ..252- 8531. 19 Attend Dinner Boosters The Cheermakers Class of Miller Memorial held their annual Thanksgiving dinner Tu- esday November 20, 1979 at the church.
