BHHN (Best Home Healthcare Network) is the leading and go-to home healthcare provider for admitting COVID cases home post healthcare discharge in Cook County. 

Chicago, Illinois – April 3, 2021, Best Home Healthcare Network was pleased to announce their being chosen by Crain’s Chicago Business 2021 as a Healthcare Hero – For Post-Hospital In-Home Patient Support. In the wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic, many home healthcare providers shut down in 2020. Best Home Healthcare Network’s proactive joint operational planning with hospitals to fulfill home healthcare requests during surges took the pressure away from the other remaining home healthcare networks.

Crain’s Chicago considered many factors, among them: BHHN offers short term in-home rehabilitation care to patients discharged from hospitals under primary care physicians’ supervision. Some examples of medical cases their team of Registered Nurses, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists (and more) provide support for are: complex clinical care (one example is paraplegic care management), advance stage wounds, ostomy care, providing life-saving IV therapy, complex physical therapy, and more. BHHN did not refuse any COVID + Cases, and routinely supply patients and their families with PPE’s, and screen each patient each visit for ongoing social and medical needs.

The home healthcare providers that hospitals and health plans traditionally rely on reject patients that belong to a disadvantaged demographic and/or insurance class. BHHN leadership’s responsible procurement of surplus PPEs, such as: offering free testing to patients, patients’ families, employees, and employees’ families and clinician’s strict compliance to infection control protocols resulting in 0 incidents of COVID-19 spread from one patient home to another. BHHN fulfilled a surge in demand for in-home clinical support to hospitals and health plans during holidays and the 2nd wave by extending hours while increasing staffing.

During a recent interview, a company spokesperson made these comments, “What makes in-home patient care challenging is providing care to high acuity patients finding themselves in a scenario where they are for the first time: jobless, facing mental health issues, family loss or changed family dynamics.”

He goes on to say, “Some patients were discharged home from the hospital with home healthcare services when their family member was discharged to the funeral home because they died from COVID. In these scenarios our nurses and therapist provided psychological healing during the treatment plan. Furthermore, our clinicians took on high acuity cases in rural areas, outside of their routine territory to help patients be treated.”

The level of professionalism that their in-home visiting clinicians exhibited as they keep exceeding their limits is unexplainable. If there was a rational explanation for their in-home visiting clinicians going above and beyond the call of duty it would be their organizational culture. Some examples included: when visiting clinicians passing the positivity as they pass each other from one home to another, the weekly group calls where BHHN updates the staff with the latest clinical guidelines, 1 on 1 check ins/counseling, and the overwhelming support from the operational staff to offset their burden.
