Private Duty Nursing (PDN)
Private Duty Nursing (PDN) allows Patients with Complex medical conditions to receive quality, skilled nursing care in the comfort of their home: a setting preferred by most patients and their families. Private duty nurses generally treat patients who need long-term care, provide customized medical care, and assist with daily activities. Studies show it is less expensive than a facility stay, costing up to half as much as a single hospital day. PDN is a covered benefit of most insurances, including Medicaid, Private Insurance, or Private fund.
All our RNs, LPNs, and LVNs are fully screened and credentialed and have experience providing care for patients with a variety of ailments. Our team can help manage complex medical needs at home.
