Description

The Visiting Nurse Group, Inc. (VNG), one of the leading private duty nursing agencies in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has been providing quality home health care services for over two decades. VNG is staffed by Registered and Licensed Practical Nurses, Certified Nursing Assistants and Home Health Aides, and Licensed Physical and Occupational Therapists. VNG now takes care of more than one hundred patients (90% pediatric) with severe medical illnesses. All services are performed in the home and.. include management of tracheotomy, ventilator programs, gastronomy care, seizure disorders, cerebral palsy, intellectual and developmental disabilities, and congenital anomalies. The Foundation In 1986, VNG was established and successfully served as a nurse-staffing agency for hospitals until 1995. On September 17, 1995, VNG became Medicare Certified and refocused on adult home care due to great demand. Over the next few years, an even greater need for pediatric home care existed. Many of the large insurance companies called VNG requesting care for their pediatric patients. The requests were so enormous that VNG made a strategic management decision to forgo home care for adults and concentrate on pediatrics. Today, VNG is one of the largest pediatric private duty home health care nursing agencies servicing Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs. The Mission The mission of the Visiting Nurse Group, Inc. is to provide high quality home care services and education to those patients with high-tech and specialized health care needs regardless of race, color, national origin, handicap, age, or religious creed. Visiting Nurse Group is committed to provide the highest level of home care to each patient. Our entire staff of RNs, LPNs and Home Health Aides are passionate about the superior care they provide. We are dedicated to recruiting and retaining the most skilled and knowledgeable nurses and encourage continual skill development and training. We are ultimately rendering technologically advanced nursing care by a qualified team of professionals who truly care. The Visiting Nurse Group, Inc. provides highly specialized, comprehensive home care services to medically complex children / adult and their families on a short or long term basis. VNG believes that each child / adult deserves the right to receive complete nursing care in their homes, in a familiar setting to them, while being accompanied by their family and friends. As one of the leading pediatric and adult home care providers in Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs, VNG provides Skilled Nursing (RN/LPN), Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Home Health Aide, and Medical Social Work services. Private Duty/Shift Care Nursing VNG utilizes Registered Nurses (RNs) and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) to perform specialized nursing care on an hourly or shift basis up to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A highly skilled registered nurse supervises all the nurses. Both RNs and LPNs serve as a vital link to the physician, family members and the clinical team at the Visiting Nurse Group. Physical and Occupational Therapy Therapists provide home-based exercises, assistive and rehabilitative treatment as prescribed by the patient's attending physician. Therapy visits/hours depend upon medical necessity. Home Health Aide Home Health Aides or Certified Nursing Assistants provide personal care to patients and assist them with activities of daily living such as feeding and transfers. They may also assist the nurse or therapist in their care if ordered.
