Each skilled nurse assigned to each case completes a Daily Activity Log, Narrative Clinical Notes, and Medication Handout every shift, documenting activities done during the shift. Our Private Duty Nursing Services include most of our In-home Care Services but also include:

  • Medication Administration by a licensed nurse
  • Medication management
  • Measuring height and weight
