Private Duty Nursing

Private Duty Nursing in the Comfort of your Home

Private duty nursing (PDN) allows medically fragile patients to receive quality, skilled nursing care in the comfort of their home: a setting preferred by most patients and their families. Studies show it is less expensive than a facility stay, costing up to half as much as a single hospital day. At Lyla Home Health our Private Duty Nursing Services involve the provision of Skilled Nursing care on a 1:1 basis in the patient’s home. These services are tailored to meet the clients’ specific needs and are typically provided by Registered Nurses (RNs) or Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) as outlined but not limited to the below:

Tracheostomy:

Tracheostomy:

A tracheostomy is a small, surgical opening through the skin into the windpipe. Children may need a tracheostomy to relieve severe breathing difficulties due to an obstruction (blockage) or narrowing in the upper airway. Your child will need to stay in an intensive care unit to make sure the first tube can be safely changed. That is our work as home care specialist.

Ventilator Support and Care :

Ventilator Support and Care :

A ventilator is a machine attached to a trach tube in the patient’s throat and it helps with moving air and blowing extra oxygen into the patient’s lungs. With the assistance of our professional Nurses, our ventilator patients can receive Nursing services surrounded by family and their loved ones.

Nebulizer Treatments:

Nebulizer Treatments:

A nebulizer is a device that sprays a fine, liquid mist of medicine. It is often used in younger children who can't use inhalers. The device has an air compressor, a cup for medicine, and tubing connected to a mouthpiece or mask. Lyla Home Health offers nebulizer treatments to help your child or loved one relieve the symptoms of their respiratory condition so they can relax and breathe easily

Apnea Machines: (APAP, BiPAP & CPAP)

Apnea Machines: (APAP, BiPAP & CPAP)

Apnea is the cessation of respiratory effort lasting more than 20 seconds, or lasting a shorter duration but accompanied by bradycardia or cyanosis. At Lyla we use three main types of PAP machines. Positive airway pressure (PAP) devices are one of the main ways of treating sleep apnea, a disorder involving interrupted breathing during sleep. Continuous PAP (CPAP), auto-adjusting PAP (APAP), and bilevel PAP (BiPAP). The PAP machine delivers pressurized air through a face mask while you sleep to maintain the upper airway open.

Feeding Tubes: (GB, GJB, NG, NJ)

Feeding Tubes: (GB, GJB, NG, NJ)

Tube feeding is a way of getting the body the nutrition or medication it needs, in circumstances that cause dysphagia (who cannot chew or swallow). At Lyla we carry tube feeding treatments not limited to Gastro-Jejunal (GJ), Nasogastric tube (NG), Nasojejunal (NJ), Jejunostomy (J) tubes.

TPN Administration via Central lines

TPN Administration via Central lines

Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN), also known as intravenous or IV nutrition feeding, is a method of getting nutrition into the body through the veins. Children who are on TPN may have short bowel syndrome, which results from the malfunctioning of the small intestine and other intestinal diseases. With our unwavering commitment to our patients and our staff's expertise, we have become the preferred choice for patients prescribed with Total Parenteral Nutrition.

Medication Administration via Central lines

Medication Administration via Central lines

A central line is a type of catheter (flexible tube) that allows for the administration of intravenous fluids, medications, blood products and parenteral nutrition. We perform medication administration for outpatient visits with these catheters in infants and children inserted by interventional radiologist. At Lyla Home Health, our nurses are responsible for continuing to administer medication, including TPN, as prescribed by the doctor.

Seizure Management

Seizure Management

A sudden, uncontrolled burst of electrical activity in the brain, which causes changes in behavior, movements, feelings, and levels of consciousness, can be detrimental, especially in children. At Lyla, our nursing care plan for clients with seizure disorders aims to ensure safety during and after seizures, prevent injury, and minimize the frequency and severity of seizures through appropriate medication management and education. The plan involves regular monitoring of seizure activity and medication side effects, as well as addressing any psychological or social impacts of the disorder, all provided in the comfort of your home.
