What Do Pediatric Home Health Nurses Do?
If you have a child with developmental disabilities, you can get them excellent care from Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services. Our nurses can manage all your child’s needs through a range of services, from at-home pediatric care appointments to 24/7 care.
Pediatric nurses can assist a child confined to a bed for any reason or any child who uses a feeding tube or ventilator. Other children may need a CPAP machine so they can keep the airways clear and breathe properly. Our nurses can monitor the use of this machine to help your child relax without labored breathing. Similarly, if your child uses an IV, a pediatric home health care nurse can oversee and monitor the IV.
Some families feel that they can’t keep up with their regular everyday tasks. In these cases, your home care professional can help out with light housekeeping and meal preparation. This extra assistance provides the family members with some space to relax and focus on the things that matter most.
