PRIVATE-DUTY NURSING FOR CHILDREN.

Pediatric Care Like No Other

We staff highly trained LPNs and RNs – all with pediatric backgrounds – to care for our pediatric clients with special needs. We offer round-the-clock care to provide for all of your child’s health care needs. Our special care services include:

  • Ventilator care
  • Diaphragmatic pacers
  • Tracheostomy care
  • Gastrostomy tube care and feedings
  • Medication administration (oral, IV, IM injections, and subcutaneous injections)
  • Seizure care
  • Bipap or CPAP for respiratory issues
  • Oxygen therapy
  • Breathing treatments
  • Range of motion exercises, as directed
  • Wound care, as needed
  • Vital signs
  • Blood sugars, as needed

All staff members received yearly in-service training on issues related to the types of clients we provide care for. Nurses caring for children on ventilators receive four hours of training prior to accepting the patient, and they also have annual ventilator re-instruction with a respiratory therapist.

Paying for Services

We understand how important it is for home care to be affordable. Many of our pediatric services covered by Medicaid-based programs, including:

  • Regional Center
  • Healthy Children and Youth Program
  • Medically Fragile Adult Waiver Program
  • Managed Care Companies

If you have private insurance, we will help you determine if pediatric private duty nursing is covered.
