Sometimes home care for your parent or loved one involves medical procedures you cannot perform yourself. A home health aide or personal care aide is important, but you may also need a registered nurse (RN) or licensed practical nurse (LPN) to provide the medical portion of your loved one’s care. Guardian provides complex nursing to patients receiving home care.
What Is Complex Care Nursing?
Advanced medical care that previously was only available in a medical facility can now be administered in your home by licensed medical professionals. A broad range of complex medical needs can be met for patients in home care, including:
- Gastrostomy Feeding
- Medication Management
- Oral Suctioning
- Lab Draws
- Bowel Management
- Central Line and Port Maintenance
- Enteral Feeding
- Diabetic Monitoring and Insulin Administration
- Tracheostomy Care
- Stoma Care
- Infusion Therapies and Injections
- Oxygen Therapy
Guardian provides complex nursing services to augment your home care team, making it possible for your loved one to remain at home.
Qualifications for Complex Care Nursing
When it comes to complex nursing, you need the qualified professionals from Guardian who bring years of experience and training in nursing services. Providing complex care services outside of a medical facility requires a special touch to be sure standard medical protocols are followed.
Our complex nursing specialists work with you and your loved one to develop the right care plan for your situation. Complex nursing can be sensitive and involve vital bodily functions, as well as, additional risk for infection in patients who are already compromised. By providing highly qualified care, the complex nursing team at Guardian help maintain the best possible quality of life for your family members.
