The Nurse Practitioner-Led Outreach Team (NLOT) consists of four full-time Nurse Practitioner’s (NP) employed by Windsor Regional Hospital. They provide direct service to thirteen long-term care (LTC) homes in the Windsor-Essex area. The goal is to avoid unnecessary transfers to the emergency room by providing medical treatment in the comfort of their home. In the event that a resident is hospitalized, the NP can also act as a link between hospital and LTC home to ensure the most appropriate and efficient discharge.
Examples of treatments offered to residents by the NP in collaboration with LTC staff include but are not limited to the following:
In the event a resident is hospitalized, the NLOT team can help ensure a safe and efficient discharge back to their facility through repatriation with the following indicators:
