Home Care - Babysitting

Often, sick or injured children don't have to be in the hospital, and can be cared for safely at home. Sometimes, parents feel they want to learn more about how to best take care of their sick children at home.

Some topics included in the home care of sick children are:

  • giving injections
  • giving medication
  • home care after hospitalization
  • home IV therapy
  • home phototherapy
  • hospice
  • medical alert
  • oxygen therapy at home
