Private Duty Nurses & Aides

Doctor attending family

Families or patients may wish to hire the services of a private duty registered nurse or private duty aide.

Private duty nurses are permitted in every unit except the intensive care units. Payment for the hired registered nurse is the responsibility of the patient or family. Please check with your insurance plan to see what expenses are covered.

Private duty aides may be beneficial to patients with high anxiety, who may need additional support to cope with their hospital stay.

For more information on private duty nurses and private duty aides, including a list of agencies that offer such services, please contact our Care Coordination Department, 201-894-3080, or speak to a nursing supervisor outside of business hours.
