NurseCom's licensed RNs respond to calls from patients, families, caregivers,
physicians and staff when your agency or office is closed.
NurseCom eliminates the cost and difficulties of an answering service by providing
direct RN access after-hours triage services to home health and hospice
agencies, relieving the need to staff a triage RN that also performs after-hours visits.
Physicians are relieved of the long nights on call with the triage RN directly
intercepting the calls for them.
