The individual receiving services is a 19 year-old male who has an outcome focused on attending the TOPS Program at OSU in order to participate in college courses and find vocational options. It is important for him to have a provider who can focus on meeting his outcome by being very attentive to his healthcare needs to catch health concerns before they become major issues. This attention to detail helps keep him healthy and allows him to focus on the things that are important to him – college, friends, family, hobbies, etc. Specific care will be discussed with the potential nurse during the interview, but some general nursing care needs will include daily stoma site cleaning, tracheostomy care, oxygen administration, oral suctioning, medication administration, as well as all other day to day care needs (feeding, hygiene, wheelchair transfers.) He enjoys laughing at comic strips, reading all kinds of books, watching movies, playing video games, being on his iPad, and being with his family. The person receiving services currently has an Individual Options (IO) Waiver and State PDN Funding. Services are authorized for 60-hours of nursing each week (7-bases and 53-sub hours) and are authorized through the IO Waiver. However, all but one 10-hour shift is billed through State Plan PDN monthly. Immediate need for services is on Tuesdays from 8am – 6pm.  Saturdays and Sundays may also available from 8am – 1pm. It is important to note that on weekdays the nurse will need to attend the TOPS program at The Ohio State University in Columbus with the individual.  This includes transportation to/from the program using the family’s wheelchair accessible van, attending college classes, navigating the campus, sitting through study groups, and any other campus-activities.  The individual communicates by using an iPad communication device with Dynavox software.
