Tracheotomy Care & Ventilation and Technology Patient Care

Genesis Pediatric Home Health Care operates and supervises a staff of Pediatric medical professionals, such as RN’s, LPN’s, Physical Therapists, Language Specialists and others who perform prescribed medical procedures to patients at their place of residence.
At Genesis Pediatric, we employ specialized nursing professionals dedicated to taking care of technology dependent children. Since we specialize, we employ the most experienced, knowledgeable pediatric nurses. Our nurses are trained in all aspects of trach, vent, and other technologies. You can depend on Genesis Pediatric to be there to help out when you need us the most.

All procedures are performed strictly to medical specifications as per instructions of the attending physician, relevant government regulations and supervised by Genesis Pediatric Home Health Care Administrator and Director of Nursing on the ongoing basis.

Any and all medical or procedural issues that may arise from time to time are immediately brought up to the attention of attending physician, and or other qualified and responsible party.

The results of the treatment are monitored and reported to attending physician on the ongoing basis and documented in the patient’s files at Genesis Pediatric offices.

Our staff is specially trained in pediatric home health and understand the unique needs of children. Unlike other home care companies, our staff is comprised entirely of pediatric trained professionals. Genesis Pediatric Home Health is committed to assisting children and their families to receive necessary care in the familiar setting of the child’s home. Care is tailored for each patient using a team of therapists and attendants who have chosen pediatrics as their specialty.

You don’t have to send a child to the hospital – you can send us to them.
