Cuidados en su propio hogar/In-house vs. In-home


Explanation:
Estimada Anablis:

Pienso que en este caso se refiere a pacientes quienes reciben cuidados en su propio hogar. Como en el ejemplo citado a continuación. Si fuesen atendidos en el hospital, la expresión sería "in-house" o "in-residence". Favor de leer lo siguiente para confirmar el uso de los dos términos:

"Home Care for Cancer Patients

Cancer patients often feel more comfortable and secure being cared for at home. Many patients want to stay at home so that they will not be separated from family, friends, and familiar surroundings. Home care can help patients achieve this desire. It often involves a team approach that includes doctors, nurses, social workers, physical therapists, family members, and others. Home care can be both rewarding and demanding for patients and care givers. It can change relationships and require families to address new issues and cope with all aspects of patient care. To help prepare for these changes, patients and care givers are encouraged to ask questions and get as much information as possible from the home care team or organizations devoted to home care. A doctor, nurse, or social worker can provide information about patients' specific needs, the availability of home care services, and a list of local home care agencies.

Services provided by home care agencies may include access to medical equipment; visits from registered nurses, physical therapists, and social workers; help with running errands, meal preparation, and personal hygiene; and delivery of medication. The state or local health department is another important resource in finding home care services. The health department should have a registry of licensed home care agencies.

Public and private resources of financial assistance are available to patients to pay for home care. Government-sponsored programs, such as Medicaid, Medicare, the Older Americans Act, and the Veterans Administration, cover home care for those who meet their criteria.

Por otra parte:

in-house, adjective
located within a company: working, carried out, or existing within a company or organization

adverb noun
within a company: within a company or organization

Espero que le sea de utilidad para su traducción.
Saludos afectuosos de Oso :^)

cuidado de pacientes/enfermos en su propio hogar


Explanation:
Conozco este tipo de cuidado porque es ofrecido a enfermos que solamente necesitan ayuda para ban~arse, cambiar las vendas a veces varias veces en la semana, terapia, etc. Me dedico a el trabajo de accidentes laborales y esto se usa mucho para evitar el gasto de hospital cuando la enfermedad/accidente no es grave pero con tiempo se mejora. Yo sirvo de interprete con pacientes hispanos que se han lesionado en su trabajo y voy a sus hogares para que se puedan comunicar con enfermeras, terapistas, mecanicos de silla de rueda que van para ajustar algo descompuesto, etc. Hasta he asistido a una cita en el hogar del paciente que sufrio un golpe en la cabeza y se tenia que hacer unas pruebas de conocimiento y una prueba para ver si tenia la habilidad para manejar su carro. Le traieron todo tipo de equipo electronico para probar la vista, su capacidad para entender las senales, etc. y hasta un carro compuesto de manera que el senor pudo manejar mientras ser vigilado por la senora que le hacia las pruebas. La familia del paciente se incluye en el cuidado y todos quedan mejor entendidos en lo que se tiene que hacer para seguir recuperando. La segunda explicacion mas arriba de este mensaje esta muy bien dicho y explicado. Suerte! Awatts
