Nightingale’s Nursing and Attendants employs both Licensed Practical Nurses and Registered Nurses for services requiring skilled nursing care.
LPNs, or Licensed Practical Nurses, are educated and licensed in the practical aspects of hands-on nursing and who can perform duties which are designated by the state of SC as those duties requiring a practical nursing license. LPNs can administer medications down a g-tube, help with wound care, as well as provide care for adult patients with tracheotomies, vital sign monitoring, and more.
RNs, or Register Nurses, can assist with and monitor more complex patient issues, such as assessments, complex medical management, invasive monitoring, infusions and medications, care of pediatric tracheostomies and ventilators, and all other aspects of nursing duties that may be authorized by the South Carolina state licensure board. RNs, like our LPNs and Attendants, can assist with daily living in the form of light housekeeping as reflective of patient care, and as needed. Nightingale RNs can also provide Nursing Supervision, overseeing and assisting in developing care plans in partnership with each client’s medical team, such as their physician, themselves, their family, and caregivers.
LPNs are usually needed to care for the adult population with higher-need issues that require the care of a skilled licensed nurse. RNs are more often needed for the under-21 population with complex medical issues that require additional assessment and care skills. Care of infants and young children especially require additional training and experience, including at least one year of working in a setting where children were being cared for.
Our private duty nurses, both LPNs and RNs, are available to clients for 8 or more hours a day. Staying home is consistently regarded as the preferred choice of clients requiring skilled nursing services. There is no need for you or your loved one to enter a nursing home, when the care you need can come right to your door and help you within the comfort and familiarity of your own home.
