Our pediatric private duty nursing program is Joint Commission accredited and provides skilled nursing for children ranging in age from birth to 21 years. Depending on the needs of your child, a Registered Nurse (RN) or a Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) with pediatric experience will provide the skilled nursing care in the privacy of your home.
Benefits you and your child receive in addition to our skilled nursing care when using Pediatria for your pediatric private duty nursing are:
Staff Supervision – Coordination of your child’s care is ongoing and information is shared frequently between the care-giving nurses and Pediatria’s management staff. In addition, the management staff performs routine in-depth supervisory visits to ensure the caregivers are meeting all the prescribed needs in an efficient and effective manner.
Case Management and Education – Our staff coordinates information for the child’s family and physician to promote the best opportunity for enhanced outcomes. Parents are educated about the care their child is receiving and ways to promote the continuation of that care when a nurse is not in the home.
Clinical Support – We provide nursing support 24 hours a day, every day of the week. Our on-call nurses are available for advice or to implement whatever solution is required.
Insurance Verification and Approval – Our administrative support team gets authorizations and approvals necessary for your child to receive the care that he or she is entitled to have. We also assist in the enrollment process for medical assistance or waiver programs.
