Paediatrics / Specialty Nursing Program (BC)

Health care for the unique needs of children, youth and their families

Bayshore Specialty Nursing / Paediatrics has been providing nursing respite care in British Columbia since 2003. We provide care for children and youth whose medically complex and fragile health care needs require the scope of practice of Registered Nurses (RNs), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), and/or Care Aides (CRWs).

Care is provided in the child’s home, school or daycare and where appropriate, on community outings.  We take the time to develop and nurture positive, trusting relationships with these children and youth (our clients) and their families.

In building strong relationships with clients and families, Bayshore has established a Family Advisory Network to ensure its vision and strategic goals align with improving the client and family experience.

Bayshore Specialty Nursing / Paediatrics is comprised of over 400 specially trained Registered Nurses (RNs), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), and/or Care Aides (CRWs). A skilled and knowledgeable paediatric clinical leadership team oversees these community-based nurses, and ensures compliance to care plans and standards.  A dedicated Intake Nurse facilitates a smooth transition from acute care to the family home.  The Bayshore team works collaboratively with the province’s Health Authorities, hospitals, community-based paediatric programs, and other relevant health care teams to support the continuum of care.

  • a tracheostomy
  • supported ventilation (i.e., ventilator, BiPAP, CPAP)
  • a life-limiting/palliative diagnosis
  • peritoneal dialysis (PD)
  • diabetes
  • seizure disorders
  • enteral feeds (i.e., G or J tubes)
  • oral suctioning
  • catheterization
  • challenges related to growth and development
  • other complex care needs that require care by an RN, LPN and/or CRW

Accreditation

In 2017, Accreditation Canada (AC) awarded Bayshore Specialty Nursing / Paediatrics with its highest level of achievement, the Exemplary Award. This award is a reflection of the dedicated and expert work performed by our peadiatric team, focused on enhanced quality, risk mitigation, efficiency, and successful client outcomes.
