Pediatric Skilled Care

We offer specialized pediatric home health care for medically fragile children, from newborns to twenty-one years old. Working closely with trained pediatric teams, we ensure a smooth transition from hospital to home. Our services include advanced medical care like nebulizer treatments, tracheotomy care, oxygen monitoring, and specialized feeding support.

Children with complex medical needs often rely on pediatric home health care for their intensive daily care requirements. It’s crucial for pediatricians to ensure these children have access to such services to prevent unnecessary hospitalizations and enable them to stay at home. This level of care helps set up essential services and adapt to changing needs over time.

If your child needs post-acute care or has a chronic or complex medical condition, your home is often the most comfortable and convenient place to receive care.

We work closely with your child’s healthcare team to create a home environment that suits their needs. Our goal is to provide the best care for your child right at home with you and your family.

An in-home assessment is crucial for tailoring our services to your child’s specific care needs. Our assessment establishes a child’s baseline status, including a physical and psychosocial assessment, and evaluates the home environment for safety, ensuring a secure space for your child’s care.

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.
