Private Duty Sitting Services
What are private-duty sitting services?
Private duty sitting services involve the private arrangement (business-to-consumer) for the placement of home home health aids and/or CNA’s, often referred to as ‘sitters’, in the respective homes and/or hospital rooms of the consumer and/or his or her family.
For example, an elderly man is having a routine or minor surgical procedure, and his children, for whatever reason, cannot be with him in his hospital room and later his home once discharged. Private-Duty Sitting Services involve placing these sitters in the man’s hospital room and once discharged home in order to see that he is receiving the care he needs.
It is not uncommon for individuals searching for information related to medical staffing to mistake the business of medical staffing with home health care, which is a completely different service.
All of the sitters/home health aids staffed at Egan Medical Staffing are at minimum CNA (Certified Nursing Assistants).
