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.
