Private Duty nursing is provided in your home by either a registered nurse or a licensed practical nurse. The level of skilled nursing depends upon the needs of the patient, in accordance with the New Jersey Nurse Practice Act. Nursing care is maintained in shifts of either 4, 8, 12, 16, or 24 hours per day. These parameters are determined by your insurance provider in collaboration with your physician.
Our Patient Liaison will meet with you at the hospital to assess the patient’s needs and determine the plan for coming home. They will review all of the services we provide not only for nursing care but also for delivery of medical equipment and supplies, formulas, or infusion therapy and injectables. They will coordinate all of these services for you and for your family.
You will be assigned to a Nursing Supervisor, who will collaborate with the hospital staff, and with the physicians, to create a clinical plan of care which will be compliant with the physicians’ orders. Your Nursing Supervisor is a specially trained registered nurse in their field, who will then manage and orient the nurses who will care for your loved one. This includes ensuring your nurses each achieve the highest clinical competencies necessary to provide the best possible care for you or your loved one. They will visit your home periodically to review nursing notes, to assess the clinical progress, and to collaborate with other members of the clinical team.
Our NBN internal Staffing Supervisor will maintain the schedule for each nurse who has been identified as a compatible clinician to work in your home. They will speak with you weekly to assess that the patient’s needs are being met and that your family is happy. They will call you about scheduling changes and will be able to answer any questions that you may have.
