PRIVATE DUTY NURSING
Private duty nursing is an option for children and young adults with special needs such as; tracheostomy and ventilator care, feeding tubes, nebulizer treatments, TPN, frequent seizures requiring intervention, as well as many other special medical needs that children and young adults may have.
Private Duty Nursing is nursing provided in your home or child’s school or daycare by an RN (registered nurse) or LVN (licensed vocational nurse). Private Duty Nursing is provided in shifts rather than visits. For example, some children require 8 hours of care per day and some up to 24 hours of care per day. Private duty nursing is available 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Each child is unique as is each family and Angels of Care strives to ensure the perfect nurse(s) for each. Read more here....
Many children and young adults with special needs require assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, eating, toileting, etc. Angels of Care Pediatric Home Health can accommodate this by providing an attendant to your child to fit your schedule. If your child is receiving attendant care through MDCP you have the option to have an attendant that is a PAS or PASD. PAS is personal attendant services provided by an attendant who cannot perform any tasks other than assistance of activities of daily living. PASD is personal attendant services delegated which is an attendant who can have skilled tasks delegated to them by an RN, for example; tube feedings, medication administration, and/or nebulizer treatments.
