UC Davis Home Care Services For Children and Adolescents
The goal of the UC Davis Home Health pediatric program is to shorten or eliminate hospital stays by providing excellent clinical care for children at home. We support the family's role in promoting patient health and well being through individualized education and on-going support.
Our multi-disciplinary home care team implements and supports the orders of the patient's physician and other clinic professionals, ensuring continuous quality care. Our team includes highly trained and dedicated nurses, physical therapists, pharmacists, social workers and support staff. Services provided in the home include chemotherapy administration, IV central line care, medication management, patient and caregiver education, and advanced wound care. Additionally, clinicians coordinate care with doctors, clinical nurse specialists, ALTA California Regional Center, California Children's Services, public health nurses, laboratories, medical supply companies and outpatient pharmacies.
Our Pediatric home care program is a natural extension of the quality nursing care provided by the University Children's Hospital. The UC Davis Pediatric program allows patients and their families to get back to the most important things in life -special times with family, friends, school and play.
