ou are a Nurse
Nurses have a unique opportunity to participate in an intimate way with others. More intense, is the ability of the nurses who provide Continuous Care Nursing to impact patients and families. These nurses who spend extended hours, and often months with a patient and family can become invaluable to the family unit. They can have a very positive effect on the day to day function of a home. They can provide direction and encouragement. They foster a confidence in their skilled nursing approach that allows parents to relinquish some of the duties, and just be parents. They share in the joys and sadness, feeling blessed to have had the opportunity to experience all of it.
Continuous Care Nursing
Continuous Care Nursing, sometimes called Private Duty Nursing, is our primary service. In the CCN program we provide in home nursing care in blocks of time ranging from two hours per day all the way up to 24 hours per day. Our nurses generally work six to twelve hour shifts but the staffing is highly specific to patient diagnosis, physician orders, patient and family desire and insurance approval. As a general rule it is the insurers providing coverage for continuous care nursing services that determine the medical necessity as well as the appropriate number of CCN hours per week to be provided. This is almost always done in advance of any service being delivered. After approval is established, the patient and family may have some flexibility around the hours per day or time of day or night, but this is not always the case. What dictates the care regimen is the patient's assessed and determined need and the specific treatment required.
Nurses in our CCN program care for very sick children and adults. As a typical provider of this service most of our patients are children under the age of 18 or young adults ranging from 18 years to mid-twenties. The diagnoses vary widely from disorders like Leukodystrophy, Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Multiple Sclerosis, and ALS to cardiac disease and accident related disabilities. Our nurses are well trained to care for all types of diseases and disabilities and we assure that a nurse's experience and skill set matches a patient's need. We also understand that a comfortable personality fit between nurses and families is a true advantage when dealing with unique and demanding home care situations and we work hard to achieve a high level of compatibility
