Selecting the Right In-Home Pediatric Provider

Choosing an in-home pediatric provider for your child is a difficult decision. Like most parents you may have been given a list of providers from your child’s healthcare facility at the time of discharge. This may seem like an incredibly impersonal way to extend additional medical services for your child. We would agree, but legally the healthcare facility is not allowed, and should not suggest one provider over another. The reason for this is simple – the facility must remain impartial in order to avoid the perception of “steering patients” – which can be seen as a violation of the federal health care program anti-kickback statute.



So how do you select a pediatric provider you can trust?

We would suggest the best way is by doing your research, talk with the providers about the services they offer, and ask about their experience in caring for children like yours. Approach this process as if you were interviewing candidates. You should be looking for the best fit for your child and your family because your child deserves nothing less.

With that in mind, we invite you to call us anytime day or night to discuss your child’s in-home medical care. We realize, as a parent you are faced with the overwhelming task of selecting a provider. PediCare is here to answer all of your questions and explain your options. We have only one goal, to do everything in our power to ensure that your child receives the best possible in-home medical care. If the care of your child happens to fall outside our specialty or experience, we will help you find the right resource.

When you call PediCare, you are talking directly with licensed and registered pediatric nurses, not a call center. As such, our passion rest solely on meeting the individual medical needs of your child.



What is Private Duty Nursing?

Private Duty Nursing (PDN) is a branch of nursing care that is provided in the patient’s home. This is one-on-one care! PediCare can provide many types of care given in the hospital, while you and your child enjoy the comfort of your home. The amount of time each day that you will have nursing care depends on your child’s specific needs. Call us to find out more information on what may be available for your child.

Who Are Our Nurses?

PediCare nurses are chosen based on their experience, dependability and passion for pediatric nursing. Our goal is to match nurses and families we believe will compliment each other. PediCare nurses aren’t just there to meet medical needs. They will provide education, support and compassionate care to your family.

Each nurse is personally interviewed and the following qualifications are verified:

  • Current Mississippi nursing license
  • Adequate and relevant nursing experience
  • CPR certification
  • Clear background check
  • Permission for drug testing
How Much Will This Cost?

Before nursing care begins, PediCare will have your child’s nursing services approved by MS Medicaid or your private insurance company.  After approval has taken place, there is no cost to you. We will take care of getting nursing care approval, billing, and receiving payments.  You just focus on your child.

If you need help getting Medicaid for your child, please contact us. We know it can be confusing and we would love to help you.
