Due to COVID-19, the Ministry of Health has advised us to screen all calls. Therefore, if you need 24/7 phone triage during your stay, you must Pre-Register. (This puts your info on file). Due to increased inquiries, the number of clients each month will be capped as needed. Please note at Registration the time slot of 6 weeks this season to allow others to reserve. On-site service calls remain the same, but if screening determines COVID, a referral may be made and a service fee applies.

Providing Health Care Where It's Needed.
For this small fee Pre-Registration gives you access to telephone triage so you can call me with questions, concerns, or seek resources. I will have your information ahead of time to assist you. Pre-Register before you arrive in Negril. After Pre-Registration, fill out the contact form with where you are staying, your travel dates, allergies, and any significant medical history that will help me care for you in case of an emergency. Pre-Registration gives you access to call me 24/7 to assist you over the phone and gives you priority service if I get two calls simultaneously (non-life threatening)! I will do my best to triage you over the phone; if on-site assistance is necessary, service fees apply. You may also leave an emergency contact number for somebody back home and name/telephone number of medical travel insurance plan.
Comforts of Home also provides a service for 24-hour on-call nurse hotel visits, and collaborates with local physicians with access to multi-area ambulance and services. Service to some apartments and private homes available but Pre-Registration is encouraged so I know your location before you reach out. I don’t look for properties in the middle of the night. This provides a comforts of home feel for those vacationing who are in need of professional medical services. On-site service fees apply.
With over 30 years of health care experience I will assess and provide a nursing service, or refer to the appropriate level of care (local physicians, health care centers, hospitals, or flights off the island) as necessary. My purpose is to keep you and others on the island safe. Let me know how I may be of service to you.
