High Quality Private Duty Nurses

Private duty nurses are health care professionals who are contracted by a medical center or agency to provide round the clock care for their patients’ health care needs. Typically, these types of nurses are given contracts to work for specific periods of time, either by a hospital facility or by a nursing agency that works in conjunction with a hospital or group of hospitals.

They can be hired to attend their patients’ needs while in the hospital, or to offer home health care after the patient has been discharged.  Sometimes, private duty nurses are hired to attend patients with long-term conditions.

The types of services offered by private duty nurses can vary according to the decisions made by the patient or the patient’s family. These services can include, but are not limited to wake-up and tuck-in services, bath visits, patient and family education regarding medications, treatment modalities, symptoms and any complications that may arise.

Private duty nurses can provide escort services to accompany their patients to and from doctor visits, and can help their patients manage and administer medications.  They can administer wound care, such as changing dressings and checking for signs of infections, and in some instances, can even perform light housekeeping duties, such as meal preparation that is based on doctor prescribed diets, or perform laundry services.  Most agencies and hospitals that provide access to private duty nurses offer staffing for both home and institutional settings.

When considering a private duty nurse from an agency, it is important to find an agency that has a management team with a variety of backgrounds, such as nursing, legal and business disciplines. It is also important to hire and agency that is licensed by the state and that specializes in high quality, personalized home health caregivers.
