Your home health care agency needs a manual that is easy to read, understand and follow.

This home healthcare agency policy manual is designed to help you make quicker decisions while complying with all licensing guidelines, increasing productivity, reducing liability, improving employee retention and providing employees with a reference source.


This has been used by hundreds of home healthcare agencies. These policies will increase productivity and provide employees with a reference source allowing them to make quicker decisions while complying with all licensing guidelines.

The importance of a Policies and Procedures Manual

  • reflect your agency’s values, mission, and vision
  • help promote quality improvement and aid in risk management
  • may be required for legal, licensing, certification and/or accreditation purposes
  • act as a communication and teaching tool
  • provide consistent direction and guidance and to allow staff to perform their activities and tasks with consistency and efficiency
  • help to orient new staff, employees and contract workers about their purpose, job standards and expectations.
  • help avoid conflict and the potential for misunderstanding

All of these Policies and Procedures are pre-written/produced saving you lots of time, effort and money!

Easy to add additional policies and/or delete ones you don’t need. Each policy or procedure is a separate document – making it super easy to edit as you see fit.

Don’t be scrambling on day one. You have better things to do!

Have the answers to key questions in order to focus on operating your agency and making money!

For example:

  • We need to hire a home health aide; do we have a job description?
    • We need to outline her responsibilities.
  • We just discharged a client; was there a procedure for that?
    • I think we just broke the law.
  • Field staff are dressing sloppy; what does the dress code say?
    • What? There is no dress code?
  • An aide was exposed to blood; should this be documented?
    • Can we be sued if she gets sick?
  • Can we change our plan of care from what the physician ordered?
    • How do we let the family know about this?

We were just in the planning phase of opening our agency (e.g. our market and mission, how to staff and train folks, overall structure, etc.).

Getting your manual opened our eyes to so many issues that we had to rethink our operation – AND ALL FOR THE BETTER! We avoided 2 very costly mistakes and are open now with more than 75 patients.

Thank you for the quality product.

Yes. This will be part of your overall planning of the operation of the agency.

Before you take your first patient you will need such forms as Admission Process, Patient Rights and Responsibilities, and many more. You may not be able to start your agency in without most of these forms and templates.

All of our Policies and Procedures and Employee Handbook have been newly updated for 2024; there have been many changes in rules and regulation just in the past couple of years. Our included forms and templates can be “dropped” into your existing manual where necessary.

If you are just starting out and/or want to improve your existing operations Policies and Procedures Manual and Employee Handbook will prove to be a very valuable resource. They contain important policies and procedures which provide the framework that defines your agency’s operating principles and processes.

Our Policies and Procedures are designed for smaller agencies that are in the planning phase or are up and running a smaller operation. Many owner/operators just beginning will find these of greater benefit.

Yes. Each document is in the format of either Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel making it very easy to make any changes you’d like. The Manual can be easily edited by tweaking, deleting, or adding new policies to conform and comply with any state requirements. Same thing for the Employee Handbook!

Yes! Below are the most common areas of customization to help complete your documents.
• [Agency] Name and Address
• Phone and Fax Numbers
• Company email address

Yes! Your logo is placed in full color on these highly visible documents that clients, physicians, and family are most likely to come in contact with.

That’s our #1 question we get! Order your Policies and Procedure Manual now and then we can update later if/when you want to add your logo – all FREE of charge. Same concept applies to agency name, address, etc.

No. These are more than 150 forms, policies, and procedures (with job descriptions!) that are ideal for those in the planning stages or thinking about starting a home health agency. Already up and running? See a sample of what we are offering to make sure you are covered.

This is a bargain compared to the more than $2,000 cost of high end, and frankly overkill, manuals.

No, all the files will be on a USB drive which saves valuable time and money. We currently do not offer a printed version of the Policies and Procedure Manual.

After your order is placed, you will receive a confirmation within moments.

You will then be re-directed to a page allowing you to enter any custom agency information such as name, address, etc. You can also provide your logo – if you have one!

If you do not have this information yet then you can skip this step – no problem as you can enter if/when it is available.

Considering the more than one hundred files and hundreds of pages, we fulfill 9 out of 10 orders within 2-3 business days of receiving all the necessary information (e.g. logo, agency name, address, etc.).

All files are sent to you on one small USB drive – it’s super easy. Only the USB drive will be shipped. Your customized documents will be shipped at no additional charge via first class mail!
