Hospital-to-Home is an exclusively Irish company owned and managed by Deirdre O’Driscoll who has extensive experience in Irish health care. Born and brought up in Ireland, she holds a Master of Arts degree from Trinity College Dublin and a Master of Science degree from Boston University. In 2004 Deirdre set up her own successful nursing agency, International Nursing Ireland (INI). Struck by the growing need for quality, reliable home care, in 2007 she moved into home care provision, developing CareWorld. Further observing the on-going early discharge of patients home from hospital and identifying the need for skilled treatment at home, Deirdre set up Hospital to Home in 2014.
Hospital to Home offers a nurse led, multidisciplinary managed home care service to clients on discharge home from hospital for those with on-going medical and healthcare needs. We work in conjunction with the HSE, hospitals, GPs, and health insurance companies and also cater for private family cases. Our experienced, educated and professional staff provide a holistic care package tailored to our clients’ specific needs in the comfort of their own homes. We strive to promote independence at every level, treating our clients with dignity and respect at all times. Our family-centred care approach ensures we meet the often overlooked needs of family carers, elderly spouses and the wider family unit, when and where appropriate. We liaise closely with our client’s GP, public health nurse and private equipment suppliers as well as out-of-hours doctor on-call services and the community intervention team to ensure we provide the highest possible standard of care to our clients 24/7, 365 days per year.
