What is Skilled Nursing and Does My Child Require It?

Skilled nursing is a healthcare specialty that is performed by, or under the supervision of, licensed professionals (experienced Registered Nurses). It’s the care given to a child that has a specialized need and requires a more in-depth and technical therapy to treat, manage, observe, and evaluate progress.

Skilled nurses are experienced in the treatment and management of various conditions such as:

  • Cerebral palsy management and treatment

  • Diabetes management and treatment (Dexcom and Libre glucose monitoring)

  • Seizure disorders

  • Gastro tube feedings and total parenteral nutrition (TPN)

  • Respiratory and cardiac conditions such as asthma exacerbation

  • Chromosomal conditions, such as Down syndrome

  • Brain disorders, including childhood stroke, to name a few

For parents, there are many questions that come across when deciding what medical daycare to choose for your child. Questions such as:

  • Will there be a routine for nursing care / therapies?

  • Do the nurses have the knowledge and experience to care for my child?
