Frequently Asked Questions
Who needs tracheostomy or ventilator care?
Patients who have undergone a tracheostomy or are using a ventilator for chronic respiratory illnesses or injuries associated with breathing difficulties would benefit from our services. This includes but is not limited to MS, ALS and COPD.
Why is tracheostomy and ventilator care important?
It is important for tracheostomy tubes to be kept clear and clean. Taking good care of your tracheostomy and ventilator will help prevent plugs or blockages, stave off infection, and aid in breathing. Our nurses are available to come to your home to assist you and your family.
How much does tracheostomy or ventilator care cost?
The cost of hiring a private nurse for tracheostomy or ventilator care will vary depending on the level of assistance you need and the total hours of care. It will also depend on the nurse’s licensure, experience, and training.
Do you accept insurance?
At this time, we are private pay only. However, we do work with our clients to assist in reimbursement from both primary health and long term care insurance. Please contact your individual insurance carrier to confirm eligibility.
Do I need a doctor’s authorization?
Yes, a doctor’s order is required to hire a private nurse for in-home tracheostomy and ventilator care. An assessment by a nurse does not require a doctor’s approval, but any form of care does.
