VNAA and Clorox Announce Recipients of the 2019 Say "Boo!" to the Flu Grant
The Visiting Nurse Associations of America (VNAA), a wholly owned subsidiary of ElevatingHOME, is excited to announce our continuing partnership with the Clorox Company to give busy families an easy way to help scare away the flu virus this fall. More than 200,000 vaccines have been administered to children through the Say "Boo!" to the Flu program since its inception in 2005. Sixteen home-based care providers nationwide will vaccinate over 30,000 children through this year's affiliated events.
21st Clinical Procedural Manual Now Available
VNAA is pleased to present the latest edition of the award-winning Clinical Procedure Manual (CPM), a staple of home-based care agencies committed to ensuring high quality care for each patient at each visit
VNAA and ElevatingHOME strongly support the reintroduction of the bi-cameral, bi-partisan Rural Access to Hospice Act (S. 1190/H.R. 2594) sponsored by Senator Shelley Moore-Capito (R-WV), Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Congressman Ron Kind (D-WI), and Congresswoman Jackie Walorski (R-IN).

The Nurse Workforce Challenge in Home Health
HomeCare Magazine recently published an editorial by Danielle Pierotti, RN, PhD, CENP, Vice President of Quality and Research at ElevatingHOME and VNAA, entitled, “The Nurse Workforce Challenge in Home Health.” The editorial, available here, focuses on the RN workforce and the growing vacancy rates and recruitment challenges home-based care faces today. The HomeCare Magazine piece follows a study commissioned by ElevatingHOME and VNAA and subsequent white paper report examining the state of new graduate RNs in home-based care. The report, “New Graduates in Home-Based Care,” available here, summarizes expert opinions from nurse leaders in home-based care and nurse academics.
