I am the parent of a child with a disability. She has a lot of medical needs too.
Kids who have a lot of medical needs can have a nurse in their home. MassHealth approves this service.
Parents have a hard time finding nurses. There are not enough nurses working in homes.
Nurses who work in homes make a lot less money than nurses in the hospital. This is a big problem.
The campaign started in April 2016 to help parents find nurses at home.
Nurses at home keep kids:
- Out of the hospital
- Attending school
- Being in the community
