Private Duty Nursing
Private Duty Nursing allows parents of medically fragile children to have qualified, pediatric-trained nurses in their home to care for their child up to 24 hours/day, 7 days per week. At MedCare, our RN supervisors work closely with you and your child’s physician to determine the appropriate nursing schedule and treatment plan for your child’s unique needs.

- Oxygen/pulse oximetry needs
- Nebulizer treatments, CPAP/Bi-PAP
- Respiratory insufficiency, BPD and chronic lung disease
- Neurological deficits and syndromes, seizure disorders
- Severe developmental delays and genetic disorders
In addition, we always have an RN Supervisor on-call, 24 hours per day, 365 days per year to answer questions and assist our clients.
