Hi everyone! I was wondering if I could get some advice regarding when to refer a patient to a social worker. I currently do the admissions, just started home care in June. I'm struggling when it is appropriate to refer my patients for a social worker. For example, I had a patient today who is elderly, lives alone in 2 story condo, no children. Drives, but not often, probably shouldn't even be driving in the first place....but anyways, we are in for care to ulcer on her foot. Unclear when I asked who does her food shopping ect...declines HHA. Appropriate for social work eval?
