Schedule A Pediatric In-Home Assessment
An in-home assessment
establishes your child’s baseline status and creates a basis for comparison on subsequent visits, by giving us a complete physical assessment of your child; a psychosocial assessment; and a home environmental and safety assessment (a review of your child’s living space to make sure there are no safety concerns that would impact your family’s ability to safely care for your child.)

The assessment gives us time to sit with you and your child so that we can:

  • Introduce our services and thoughts about your child’s home care team
  • Discuss the services ordered by your child’s physician
  • Give you a chance to express any concerns and answer any questions you may have.
  • Verify your child’s salient information
  • Schedule your child’s first visit
  • Let you know how long the visit will take (1-4 hours depending on your child’s needs).
Any child leaving the hospital or in a doctor’s practice with a complex and/or chronic medical problem, or physical trauma, is a candidate for home care services.

Some examples include:

  • Premature infants: Most premature infants (24–32 weeks) have complications that would qualify them for home care.
  • Respiratory-compromised children: Ventilator dependent, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, traumatic brain injury complications, syndrome- related complications, tracheostomy (either permanent or temporary).
  • Cardiac-compromised children: Children with complications related to a congenital heart defect, syndrome-related complications, congenital anomaly, etc.
  • Neurologically-compromised children: Seizure disorders, cerebral palsy, syndrome-related complications, etc.​
  • Gastrostomy: Children who require feeding either via nasojejunal (NJ) tube or gastrostomy button (G button). 

Home health care staff can evaluate your child in the hospital or at home to help in making the decision for home nursing needs and hours.
