Navy Marine Corps Relief Society Combat Casualty Visiting Nurse

WHAT WE DO

DSC_2736bThe Society is the only organization providing free, in-home visits (anywhere in the country), by highly trained, experienced and compassionate Registered Nurses.  These nurses provide information to Marines and Sailors, families and caregivers who are dealing with injuries and suffering related to combat service.

This includes:

  • Health education– teaching clients and their families how to recognize and deal with physical and mental health issues
  • Referrals and follow up– finding relevant and appropriate community resources to help with various problems or challenges and following up to ensure the client and family are receiving the appropriate care and support
  • Emotional support– providing a knowledgeable medical professional to discuss any challenge or issue related to the sailor or Marine’s combat service

WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR HOME VISITS

Sailors or Marines on active duty retired or discharged who served in Iraq or Afghanistan or in a combat zone since 2001.

HOW LONG CAN A CLIENT RECEIVE ASSISTANCE

The Society is committed to providing Combat Casualty Visiting Nurse Assistance for as long as necessary to ensure combat-served Marines, Sailors and their families are taken care of.

PRIVACY AND CONFIDENTIALITY

Society visiting nurses adhere to the same privacy standards as other medical professionals. No report will be made to any command leader or other military or civilian person or entity concerning a patient’s condition or situation.
