Private Duty Nursing (PDN) is very unique, bringing registered nurses and licensed practical nurses into the homes of patients who have chronic long term conditions. PDN is skilled nursing care for children who need individualized, continuous care, on an hourly basis and who meet specific predefined criteria for a medical necessity. PDN is not intended to replace a parent as the primary caregiver or to provide all the care required for the child. The purpose of PDN is to support the care of the child living at home and assist the parent or caregiver so they can provide the care the child needs to stay at home.
Our nurses play a crucial role in helping to:
- Provide respite care
- Decrease hospitalizations
- Provide immediate and effective care
- Educate the family and patient on their condition
- Assist in organizing and optimizing care
- Help all caregivers become comfortable with in-home care
Compassionate Care Provided by Skilled Pediatric Nurses
Pediatric LPNs provide personalized in-home care to an individual and their family on a shift basis, typically between 4-12 hours. Children who are approved for private duty nursing often have tracheostomies, ventilators, g-tubes, and j-tubes, which require specialized attention for care and to prevent infection.
Patients utilizing these devices may have a chronic disease resulting in seizures or other life-threatening vulnerabilities. They all require individualized care to decrease hospital visits and improve quality of life. Some of the conditions LPNs treat include:
- Frequent seizures
- Enteral feeding
- Cystic fibrosis
- Chromosomal abnormalities
- Tracheotomy or ventilator dependency
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Neurological conditions

Our focus is to provide our pediatric LPNs the tools they need to continue to develop their skills while providing the highest level of care for the families we serve.
