Salus Pediatric School Nursing Services

Nursing-dependent students are children who may have health conditions which are unstable or even life-threatening. As a result, they require daily, direct and constant professional nursing support to meet their medical needs and assist with personal care or other activities of daily living. Salus Homecare provides these students with direct one-on-one support from a licensed nurse so that they are safer and more comfortable at school. This provides parents with peace of mind and a feeling of security when they cannot be with their children throughout the school day. It also gives children support so that they can retain a sense of normalcy in the school setting.

OT and nursing always arrived on time. Clear communication when scheduling the next appointments and arrived at that time…Everyone was very friendly and respectful of the home…

School nursing services are paid through the individual school districts. There is no insurance coverage for this program, and the Medically Complex Children’s Waiver Program also does not cover it. To access services, it is very important to work with a pediatric care agency that is contracted to provide services in your school district. Salus Homecare contracts with many school districts in Utah. Contact us for assistance in determining if your child meets the eligibility requirements for this program.

Yes, your child’s nurse can provide support with homework and schoolwork as long as assignments are appropriate for the child’s abilities. This service can be included in the plan of care.

Many nurses sit directly beside the child. Some sit very close by and within eyesight. The best seating arrangement depends on the setup in the classroom and your child’s specific needs assessment. Regardless of where the nurse sits, your child will be their full focus throughout the school day so immediate support is always available should they need it.
