This agency is dedicated to maintaining the health of our community through communicable disease surveillance, safe water and sanitation issues and prevention of health problems. We are an official Home Health Agency, certified as a participating agency under the Health Insurance Benefits Program XVIII and XIX (Medicare and Medicaid). Our staff provides health education programs (CPR, farm safety, prevention of HIV and AIDs, Child Passenger Seat Safety, lead poisoning, radon, etc), health promotion clinics (immunization, foot, blood pressure, etc.) and monitoring of current health issues in the community. We also provide skilled nursing care at home for individuals needing treatments, diet and medication management, blood work, care management and health teaching. To help individuals stay in their homes, we have excellent care provided by Home Care Aides who assist with personal cares, exercises and light housekeeping. Office visits are also available for health supervision and counseling, blood pressure and blood sugar checks, and lead screening. Winneshiek County Public Health Nursing Service is governed by the Winneshiek County Board of Health, which consists of 5 individuals who donate their time in service to the county. As a county agency, we are also under the wing of the local Board of Supervisors, one of whom serves on the Board of Health. The Board of Health determines agency policy, controls budget, and monitors health issues in the county. Anyone in Winneshiek County, regardless of age, race or socio-economic status, is eligible for our services. Home health services are provided if the doctor and nurse believe care can adequately and safely be given in the home. Anyone can contact our agency and request service – physicians, nurses, social and health agencies, schools, families and individuals. The agency accepts Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance for payments. For those without a payment source, a sliding fee scale is adjusted to fit their income. No one is denied service because of finances. Mission Statement: To promote, preserve, enhance and protect the health and well-being of all persons in the community... realizing that HEALTH CARE is the fundamental right of every human being without distinction because of race, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, mental or physical disability, social or financial status.
