Salus Short Term Nursing Services

Short term care is often advised when individuals are ready to be discharged from the hospital but still have specialized care needs. Transitioning home with the proper care is extremely beneficial to the recovery process because it provides the support of trusted professionals at a time when meeting your medical needs can be critical.

Salus Homecare San Diego’s home health is nationally accredited by the Joint Commission for quality of care. This means that our employees are held to the highest expectations, and we constantly monitor and revise our services to support the safety, health and recovery process for our clients. Our agency is one of only a select few deserving of this accreditation, and that is why we receive a substantial number of referrals from many of San Diego’s top healthcare professionals.

As part of Salus Homecare of San Diego’s commitment to excellence, we treat each client as an individual throughout the recovery process. Our home health nurses listen to your needs, respond to your concerns and constantly monitor your care plan in an effort to provide the highest quality care available anywhere.

When we first approached Salus in regard to the care of our parents, both in their late 80’s, we had no idea what challenges lay ahead. Six years later, we can honestly say we have experienced it all, from skin tears and bed sores to digestion issues and catheter problems, and everything in between. After a short period of determining which caregivers were a good match for our parents, we settled on a group of incredibly dedicated and caring individuals from Salus, who were with our parents to the end. They became our eyes and ears for our parents’ well-being and frequently they would text us or send pictures to keep us apprised. We will be forever grateful for their service and for doing their very best to improve the quality of life of our parents. We also owe a huge debt of gratitude to Salus’ case manager and schedulers. They were without exception professional, caring, and competent, which helped to keep as much continuity of caregivers as possible. We highly recommend Salus to anyone requiring homecare or hospice care.
