Easy, Convenient Access
Access to comprehensive, expert care at home can often enable a medically stable child to leave the hospital early. The home care provided supports family-centered care and continuity of pediatric care for the child and the family. Such care can also lower the risk of complications and readmission.
Home Care Services from Cincinnati Children’s are available to families in Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio seven days a week. (Services provided vary based upon specific state regulations.)
Our registered nurses perform assessments and work closely with your child’s physician to create a customized home care plan.
Our team of nurses, therapists, social workers, pharmacists and other healthcare providers are all careful observers of your child’s progress in your home and through conversation with you − in effect, the doctor’s “eyes and ears.” Our team members consult regularly among themselves and with your child’s physician to ensure the best outcome.
Every member of our staff is a pediatric specialist who understands the unique problems that illness and injury pose for young, growing bodies. We select only the most skilled, dedicated and sensitive professionals for our caregiving team, which includes:
- Registered nurses
- Speech and language pathologists
- Clinical pharmacists
- Licensed social workers
- Licensed practical nurses
- Occupational therapists
- Child life specialists
- Physical therapists
- Respiratory therapists
- Massage therapists
- Other healthcare support team members
Education for Families
Our commitment to teaching families helps build their skills and confidence in caring for their child and enhances adherence with physicians’ care plans. We offer families easy access to all the ambulatory aids, medical and surgical supplies and other home medical equipment their child’s care requires. We also ensure they understand how to properly use and maintain their equipment.
Our equipment is specifically designed to accommodate a wide range of physical and developmental levels. We’re supported by all the resources of Cincinnati Children’s, one of the nation’s premier pediatric medical centers.
