Discover how our private duty nursing care services can provide care and comfort for you or a loved one.
What is private duty nursing?
Private Duty Nursing (PDN) allows medically fragile patients to receive quality, skilled nursing care in the comfort of their home: a setting preferred by most patients and their families. Studies show it is less expensive than a facility stay, costing up to half as much as a single hospital day.
