Our caregivers provide top-notch care. There are times, however, that medical assistance is needed, and that requires a licensed private duty nurse.

Sunland’s staff of private duty nurses are made up of highly trained, qualified staff to provide specialized care. Our private duty nurses are either licensed practical nurses (LPNs) or registered nurses (RNs).

Our private duty nurses provide personalized, one-on-one care in inpatient and outpatient environments. What our clients love about private duty nurses is how their care enables them to maintain more independence in the home. If not for private duty nurses, many seniors would have to live in an inpatient facility because of a few daily medical requirements. When seniors are in live-in facilities, they are comforted by how they are advocated for and personally cared for by their nurses.

Sunland’s private duty nurses assist with:

  • Specialized and personalized nursing in your own home
  • Offer advanced care, reducing hospital visits or need for live in facilities
  • Past due resident assessments by RN
  • Potential new residents assessments by RN
  • Ostomy and catheter care
  • Tube feeding
  • IV care
  • Diabetic care
  • Nurse accompanied visits to doctor’s appointments with reporting to community and family
  • Geriatric care management
  • Oral medication set up
  • Non-injectable or injectable medication administration
  • Insulin syringe filling
  • Removal/replacement of aseptic dressings
  • Skin management, skin condition monitoring, and wound care
  • Oral cavity suctioning and tube feeding
  • Bowel care
  • Core training for family members
  • General health assessments and care coordination

Additionally, private duty nurses can carry on these responsibilities in hospitals and assisted living facilities as well. And, they are trained in memory care, which is imperative so that the early signs of memory loss are detected and potentially corrected.

How will you know when you need a private duty nurse?

If you require any of the above listed assistance, give us a call! Sometimes there are other obstacles as well. They are:

  • You are at risk for falling
  • You suffer from confusion/dementia/alzheimer’s
  • Anxiety/depression are becoming apparent
  • You require “real-time” medical communication – they communicate with your doctor and other team members and coordinate care as you need it in real-time
  • Continuity of nursing care from hospital to home
  • Exclusive attention is required
