What is a Private Duty Nurse
Private Duty Nursing (PDN) is hourly, skilled nursing care provided in a patient’s home. Private duty nursing provides more individual and continuous skilled care than can be provided in a skilled nurse visit through a home health agency. The intent of private duty nursing is to assist the patient with complex direct skilled nursing care, to develop caregiver competencies through training and education, and to optimize patient health status and outcomes. Private duty nursing is medically necessary continuous, substantial and complex hourly nursing services provided by a licensed nurse in the patient’s home. (The nursing tasks must be done so frequently that the need is continuous.)
The frequency and duration of private duty nursing services is intermittent and temporary in nature and is not intended to be provided on a permanent ongoing basis.
