In Home Private Duty Nursing

Nurse Managed Care Without Compromise

Private Duty Nursing – shift-based nursing care for complex patients – provides a viable alternative to facility-based care or full-time caregiving duties for you and your loved one. At Continuum Pediatric Nursing, we understand how overwhelming it can be for families to manage the care of children with complex medical conditions or special needs while balancing other family responsibilities, jobs, personal needs, and relationships. If you are taking your special child home for the first time, the challenge can seem insurmountable. If you have been trying to manage on your own or can’t seem to maintain quality nursing with any consistency, the frustration can become desperation. The right private duty nursing agency can make all the difference.

Finding the right private duty nursing agency starts with a phone call. At Continuum, you will speak to one of our nurse managers, who are experts at reviewing your child’s condition and your insurance benefits and, working with your physician, getting the right authorization for services for your child.  Supporting that authorization on an ongoing basis with appropriate documentation, assessments and plans of care is fundamental to our process. We recognize that every child is different and that every plan of care must be tailored to their unique needs, but also to put you in the best position to receive the services that best suit you and your family’s needs. Once services have been authorized, a successful transition to the home requires understanding not only of the patient, but of the needs of the extended family and anyone involved in the life of the child, including mom, dad, siblings, physicians, discharge planners, ancillary care providers, and DME vendors. Our team members work together to seamlessly integrate these various requirements, ensuring that your child’s needs are being continually met and adjustments are made as necessary.

Matching Your Family with the Perfect Caregiver

The right agency will understand that the right nurse isn’t just the one with the right resume. Continuum nurses enjoy the industry’s most targeted and complete training and support in pediatric home care. Their training goes beyond the clinically focused curriculum to include all the tangibles and intangibles that come with working among a family, within a family, and with sensitivity and care for all the members of the household. Our Staffing Schedulers take pride in getting to know our patients and their families. Seeking out the nuances of the family home and dynamic, they match them with nurses with whom they are deeply familiar beyond their clinical credentials. There is no scenario, no challenge or situation that Continuum’s group of professionals has not encountered in private duty nursing. Call us today to find out how we can make a difference for you and your family.
