Sustaining a spinal cord or brain injury can be devastating, not only for the individual but also their family and loved ones. When such injuries occur, they can change everything about a person and the way they live their lives – in a matter of moments. It affects who they are and the way they think, feel and act. These changes can be permanent or temporary, and may cause impairment or complete inability to function and perform.

If you or a member of your family is faced with a long-term disability resulting from spinal cord or brain damage, you’ll understand all too well the struggles of day-to-day living. Tasks that used to be simple are now difficult, and assistance is required. This is when private duty nursing can help.

Private duty nurses (PDNs) have the education, training and expertise to treat even the most complex spinal cord or brain injury. The gamut of care they provide includes:
  • Brain Injuries
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Catastrophic Injuries
  • Multiple Traumas
  • Wound VAC (vacuum assisted control) and Wound Care
  • Bladder and Bowel Programs
  • Reinforcement of Intervention/Therapy goals
  • Monitoring Skin Integrity
  • Education of Family and Patient on Disease Process and Medication
Private duty nursing can offer this high level of care and associated assistance at home. They understand the challenges of spinal cord and brain injuries and have the ability to assist with in-home nursing needs and daily living to provide the highest degree of comfort possible. These highly competent caregivers can offer effective and immediate private duty nursing care that’s designed to meet a patient’s specific needs, while addressing functional limitations sustained in traumatic injuries.
