Private duty nursing is the care of clients by nurses, who may be licensed as RNs (Registered Nurses) or LPNs (Licensed Practical Nurses).
Most nurses who provide private duty care work one-on-one with individual patients.
Private duty may be paid by private pay, private insurance, managed care organizations, or Medicaid. Many private duty nursing cases involve pediatric patients who have long term illnesses such as Cerebral Palsy (CP) and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI). Many patients need care for a Gastrostomy Tube (G-Tube), Tracheostomy (Trach) or Ventilator (Vent). Private duty nursing generally involves more time and skilled nursing than Home Health Care.
In a typical setting within your hospital you are given information on providers within your state that can support the medical services that are required for your case. You then have the freedom of choice to pick whichever provider you feel most comfortable with.
