What is Skilled Nursing?
The term skilled nursing care refers to the highest level of medical attention provided by licensed health professionals, such as a licensed practical nurse (LPN), registered nurse (RN), and certified nursing assistant (CNA).
The task of a skilled nurse will be to provide the children with the medical care and developmental training they need to function on a day-to-day basis as well as lead happy, healthy lives. We have nurses who can assume responsibilities for different types and levels of special needs.
Staff at Small Steps PPEC believe that interacting with children’s families is essential to teaching them the necessary skills to take care of and interact with their loved ones. To become a big part of each child’s life, our nurses strive to form strong bonds with their families. Since nurses communicate with each child, their families, doctors of different specialties, and other caregivers at our center, communication skills are extremely important. A Medical Director and a Director of Nursing guide our highly trained staff in providing medical care for children facing complex illnesses.
We offer a wide range of services at Small Steps PPEC, including intravenous therapy, injections, monitoring of vital signs, and more. Children who have to receive a high level of care on a constant or frequent basis as a result of chronic medical conditions may benefit from these services over the long term.
