At Open Systems Healthcare, our goal is to not just be another agency, but to act as a real partner for you and your child’s care. We establish this close relationship by having a strong team that is:
- Committed to Your Care Experience: Every OSH employee, from our caregivers to the teams in our branches, shares the goal of empowering your child to live life on their own terms.
- Rigorous Caregiver Screening: Our caregivers undergo challenging interviews and background checks to ensure your child is receiving care from the absolute best in the field.
- Prioritizing Compliance: We adhere to the highest standards of healthcare compliance and we conduct our own rigid internal audits regularly. Your child’s safety and privacy are of the utmost importance to us.
- Professional and Personal: At OSH, our offices aren’t franchises and you’ll never speak to a call center. You’ll always speak to someone who understands your child’s case and is available to you 24/7.
Our Pediatric Nursing services are held to exceptional care and compliance standards. Specifically, our Pediatric Nursing services use three major areas as our ‘North Star’ to exceeding expectations and guaranteeing client satisfaction:
- Team-Based Approach: Our skilled nurses work with your primary care physician and home care provider to deliver your child’s care as a team. While our Pediatric Nursing services are available to Florida residents, we’ll work with your primary care physician wherever he or she may reside. Your physician will be highly involved with your child’s care.
- Exceptional Service: At OSH, there is nothing more important to every member of our team than providing your child with quality, top-notch service. We will go above and beyond – both in our office and with our caregivers and nurses – to ensure your child is receiving the highest quality care.
- Strong Relationships: Finding the right private duty nurse is one of the most important steps of the process. Your OSH team will work with you to find the best match for your child’s specific needs. Our focus is on building strong, lasting relationships with you and your child – both for your nurse and with our entire office.
Our RNs or LPNs assist with patients requiring medical services and perform basic nursing care in addition to attending to specific medical needs in the patient’s care plan. Examples of medical services include:
- Wound care
- Cardiac and post-op care
- In-home infusion/IV
- Indwelling catheter care
- Medication management
- Patient teaching
Although there are many factors that go into assigning start of care, our office’s Administrative and Clinical Staff will always provide open, transparent communication. As part of the process, we coordinate with your primary care and specialty physicians (when applicable) as well as assign appropriate staff to fit your child’s case. This can happen in as little as 24 hours, but may also take weeks depending on the level of care and safety of putting those services in place.
At OSH, it is a priority for all staff to meet and greet with any patient prior to the start of care. We believe your input and decisions are essential parts of owning your child’s care here. We’ll provide you with a range of caregivers to choose from, and you can be as active as you would like in selecting your private caregiver. Our team can also make recommendations based on your preferences and your child’s care requirements. OSH’s challenging interviews and background checks ensure the screening process is thorough. We also verify all credentials and stay up-to-date on documentation to take away any stress and responsibilities you might incur if you hired a care provider directly.
Schedules vary depending on the hours that have been prescribed by a doctor, approved by the insurance company, and in coordination with each family.
Each nurse is screened by our Human Resource Coordinator, as well as our Recruiters and Clinical Staff. They must pass a clinical competency exam, provide adequate health screenings and professional references, as well as have a valid nursing license. Nurses are also screened in our skills lab before coming to your home.
Yes. Our nurses must pass the required state background screenings before coming to your home.

Our team is accessible anytime at our on-call line. There is always someone from OSH available to assist you, and you’ll never speak with a call center. You can reach our West Palm Beach office at (561) 515-3050 and our Philadelphia Home Health office at (484) 439-4546.
