While your child is at school, the last thing you want to worry about is their safety and well-being. At Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services, our Pediatric Division can assist on every level, at home or at school.
At school, our nurses work one-on-one with your child, providing compassionate support and a variety of services, from essential personal care to complex nursing services.
Our Pediatric School Services Include, But Are Not Limited To:
- Assisting children with school bus transportation
- Delivering personalized care while at school and on field trips
- Helping children to manage everyday school functions, such as toileting and keeping a proper diet
- Providing constant clinical supervision for children with complex medical needs
What Are Pediatric In-School Services?
Caring for a child with complex medical needs can be a challenging undertaking for any parent. Providing the support your child needs throughout the day can feel overwhelming or taxing. That’s why our pediatric school services are delivered by certified health care providers and designed to offer the highest quality of care to children while they’re at school and apart from their families.
The skilled nursing staff and certified home health aides at Preferred have the experience and, above all, the passion for providing dedicated Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care (PPEC) to children with special needs. Along with assisting children with bus transportation, our care providers will accompany your child to school or on school field trips so that they can assist with their activities and help them be successful at school every day.
If necessary, our in-school pediatric care nurses are able to assist with more complex needs, like managing seizure and cardiac disorders, administering injections, wound care, and more. Our care providers make it their mission to ensure each child has a safe and nurturing environment at all times. Through these services, we aim to give families the peace of mind that their child’s health care needs are taken care of.
Your Child’s Health Care Needs Are Our Specialty
Most school districts are not equipped with the necessary resources to provide a safe and productive learning environment for children with complex medical conditions. While school health services make provisions for a school nurse, they cannot provide the personal one-on-one care that some children need. And while pediatric health centers are a fantastic resource, they can’t be with your child at school.
With the services provided by Preferred’s dedicated nurses and caregivers, families can give their children the support they need in their everyday lives — whether it’s pursuing an education, participating in extracurricular activities, or performing essential daily functions like eating and going to the bathroom.
A Personalized Care Plan For Your Child With Our Pediatric School Care Services
At Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services, we work with you and your doctors to identify the specific pediatric home care services your child needs. Then we develop a personalized plan for both at-home and in-school pediatric care.
This plan goes above and beyond in accommodating your child’s specific conditions by providing high-quality care each day and making sure your family understands every part of your child’s care.
Providing You Peace of Mind
We provide personalized one-on-one pediatric care for children while they’re at home or school. By doing this, we give your child the opportunity to live a comfortable and productive life, easing the challenge of caring for a medically complex or developmentally delayed child, and leaving you with more time and energy for the moments that matter most.
