Private duty nursing is the care of clients by nurses, Guardian Home Health Care uses RN (Registered Nurse) or LPN/LVN (Licensed Practical Nurse).
Our nurses who provide private duty care are working one-on-one with individual clients. The care is provided in the client’s home, or an institution, such as a hospital, nursing home or other such facility.
Many of the private duty nursing cases involve pediatric patients on Supplemental Security Income (SSI) that have long term illnesses such as Cerebral Palsy (CP)and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI). Many of the patients have Gastrostomy Tube (G-Tube), Tracheostomy Care (Trach), or Ventilator (Vent). Our private duty nurses are in many cases Registered Nurses (RN) or Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVN).
