What does Family Practice mean?
It’s easy to get lost in translation when dealing with the medical field. Family Practice refers to patients of all ages and general health issues. RHP offers a wide range of services including but certainly not limited to:
- Acute and chronic care management
- Minor Procedures, like excisions, vasectomy, IUD implants and fracture care
- Tobacco Cessation
- Family Planning
- Weight Management
- Wellness Visits
What is a Nurse Practitioner?
Even though Nurse Practitioners (aka NPs or APNs) have been around for decades, many people are still confused by what they can do. NPs are registered nurses who have acquired additional education in the medical field. Independently or in collaboration with other healthcare professionals, NPs can provide a wide range of primary, acute, and specialty healthcare services
- Ordering, Performing, & Interpreting diagnostic tests such as labs and x-rays
- Diagnosing and treating acute and chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, infections and injuries
- Prescribing medications and other treatments
How will I be billed for my visit?
No matter who you visit for your primary care, you should always consult with your insurance company about your individual coverage. For more information about Hammond-Henry Hospital billing, be sure to check out our billing and collection policies.
Will providers visit a patient in a nursing home?
When you have a loved one in a nursing home, it can be necessary to have a provider visit outside of the office. Certain RHP providers routinely perform visits to area nursing homes.
How do I know what vaccines my child needs?
Keeping track of vaccines for your children can be a daunting task. When they need them and what type are all questions that swim inside a parents head. A phone call to your nearest RHP Clinic can help. RHP participates in the Vaccine for Children program through the Illinois Department of Public Health striving to keep youth up to date on vaccines. RHP offers a wide variety of immunizations to patients not eligible for the Vaccine for Children program such as pneumonia, influenza, chicken pox, Gardasil, meningitis, and tetanus to name a few.
