Homecare Asthma Express :: Nationwide Children's Hospital, Columbus, Ohio

Asthma Express Program

Asthma Express is a home visit program designed to assist a patient and/or caregiver in understanding and succeeding in the management of asthma. During the home visits a nurse will perform a physical and environment assessment, assist with identification of triggers, review medications and action plan and provide education.

 Program Logistics:

  • Three home visits, one visit every week 

  • Summary of findings provided to the practitioner after three visit completion

  • Additional visits can be ordered if further intervention needed

 Program Goals for the Patient:

  • Knowledgeable of asthma action plan

  • Environmental triggers identified with resolution assistance

  • Compliance with medications

  • Identify education opportunities

When you have completed this program, you will know more about asthma and be more comfortable with home treatment. You should not need to go to the hospital or doctor as much to deal with day-to-day care. Asthma does not have to control your life. We will answer any questions you have about asthma and the medicine the doctor has prescribed.
