Individuals can be seen by the NP in their homes. This is the true essence of a housecall. The NP can provide all necessary primary medical care to each individual after formulating a plan of action. Depending on the complexity of the patient's illness, the NP can visit each patient routinely, more often on people with multiple medical problems.
The NP (Nurse Practiontioner) is able to diagnose and treat an assortment of both acute and chronic medical conditions including heart disease, diabetes, elevated cholesterol, COPD, thyroid disorders, anemia, common colds, sore throats, allergies, dementia, and anemia to name a few.

CRNP can provide medical care to residents of Personal Care homes and Assisted Livings several different ways. The NP can work with the attending physician and assist in "rounding" on patients the primary care Physician cannot always get to. This especially works well when a patient has an acute illness, such as a cold or upper respiratory infection. The patient may not be able to get in to see his or her Physician that day, however CRNP provided NP's may be available on a much shorter notice and be capable of doing a housecall for the sick patient. This is done only upon permission from the attending Physician is granted. After seeing the patient, the NP faxes the office note generated from the visit to the Physician or directly calls his or her findings to the Physician and directly discusses the case in detail.
Assuming care for patients under the authority and direction of the collaborating Physician
The other venue for CRNP in Personal Care Homes or Assisted Livings is assuming care for patients under the authority and direction of the collaborating Physician. Case in point; a new resident from out of the area is admitted to a Personal Care home or Assisted Living. The patient has the right to chose his or her physician. Often times since the NP's have such a strong presence in the building and a good rapport with the staff, the facility will recommend them to families and patients. If they chose this option then the collaborating Physician becomes the primary care Doctor for the patient. When this occurs, the NP assumes all medical care under guidance of the physician and based on state practice laws. Many residents are fond of this option because they essentially do not have to leave the building to see their medical group, with the exception of emergencies or when they have to see specialists.
State laws allow the Nurse Practitioner to sign mandated paperwork such as MA51's and ME55's. The aforementioned paperwork is necessary for each resident yearly to show they are appropriate for the level of care at the facility. These forms are essential to the Assisted Livings and Personal Care homes and must be completed in timely manner so that the facility avoids fines from the state. NP's are trained in correctly filling out these documents and are well aware of the importance of these forms to the facilities.
