We provided care encompassing social, medical, and emotional support. We educated the patient’s mom about her child’s medical equipment. And, to help provide him with care at home, we used our app for a video visit with his mom and Private Duty Nurse to help manage the increase in his breakthrough seizures. We also identified local resources to prevent eviction, including options for new, supportive housing and safe transportation to a new home.
Our patient and their PDN were able to manage breakthrough seizures at home until the first appointment at a new high-risk clinic, preventing unnecessary hospital visits. The family also got access to critical housing resources.
