Reliable Pediatric Care for Parents with a Special Needs Child

Nurses ’n Kids has been a respected medical provider in the community since 1988. Infants and children that attend Nurses ’n Kids have fewer ER visits and hospital readmissions. Nurses ’n Kids has a knowledgeable and reliable Pediatric Team and is always staffed during hours, so you benefit from knowing your child is going to receive consistent care. At Nurses ’n Kids there is no risk of un-staffed shifts or lack of staff continuity as occurs in other health care settings. Nurses ’n Kids Medical Day Care can be in lieu of or in addition to private duty nursing, as attendance at our Medical Day Care will enable your child to receive the great benefit of socializing with children of the same age and developmental status, versus the limitations of being isolated to a home program only. Integration and socialization will encourage optimal development, learning and play skills, in addition to emotional wellness, all of utmost importance during childhood to attain your child’s greatest potential.

 

Working Together for Your Kids Health

Nurses ’n Kids works with our local Pediatric Centers & Neonatal Intensive Care Units, in addition to other area hospitals. As part of your child’s care, our professionals will consult with your child’s Pediatricians, Specialists, Clinicians and Community Coordinators to enhance your child’s individualized plan of care. Nurses ’n Kids Medical Director is a Pediatrician who routinely attends patient rounds and will be updated on your child’s status. If our staff are unable to reach your child’s physician when needed, our Medical Director can provide recommendations to further ensure that your child receives the best care.
