UPMC Visiting Nurses
 PROGRAMS: HEALTHY HEARTS
Healthy Hearts at Home follows your doctor's plan to help you recover at home. A nurse with special training in heart and lung problems will get the orders from your doctor about the plan for care. Then he or she will make visits to your home and will stay in touch with your doctor as you progress.

  • take their medicines properly
