Skilled In-Home Nursing Services for Long Island, NY
Family members and loved ones may need skilled nursing services at any age, and for a variety of conditions. Whether recovering from an accident or needing long-term assistance with medication management, professional caregivers at Ideal Home Care Services in Long Island, New York, can help. Clients can stay in the comfort of their own homes, while care is provided by registered nurses (RNs) and licensed practical nurses (LPNs).
Gastric Tube Feeding and Tube Feeding Care
For clients who need help getting all the nutrients they need, our professional nurses visit for regular gastric tube feeding. Nutrient-packed liquids are introduced via the tube, so clients don’t have to chew or swallow but still can receive easily digestible nutrition and hydration.
Skilled nursing services include monitoring the client during and after feeding, as well as keeping the tube clean and in good working order. Ideal Home Care Services nurses visit clients in their homes and flush and inspect the tubes, using sterile techniques, and make sure insertion is done properly.
An important aspect of skilled nursing services is providing insulin management for diabetic clients. When Ideal Home Care Services nurses visit clients in their homes, they can test sugar levels and administer the appropriate amounts of insulin. With regular monitoring and recording of this data, these skilled nursing services benefit the diabetic client’s health.
Private Duty Nursing
For some clients, daily visits to the home are not adequate for the care required. Skilled nursing services can be provided:
Tracheostomy tubes require suctioning and cleaning. Nurses are required for managing the replacement of the inner cannula, suctioning for better breathing, and overall hygiene. Clients who receive this care in-home benefit greatly from skilled nursing services.
For wounds that take longer to heal, professional care by skilled nurses is essential. Wounds must be kept clean, monitored for infection and other complications, and bandaged. Delicate skin must be treated carefully.
Infusion therapy is prescribed for clients who suffer from Crohn’s disease, cancers, congestive heart failure, or dehydration, among other conditions. Skilled nursing services provided by Ideal Home Care Services include the administration of medications and fluids for these clients at home, either intravenously or subcutaneously.
