Diagnosis: Premature, bronchopulmonary dysplasia
Services used: Respiratory, specialized nutrition, home care nursing
Easton not only required a tracheostomy and ventilator to help with breathing but also the support of enteral nutrition to ensure he got stronger and stayed healthy once home.
Easton’s family discharged home with the support of a comprehensive team from PHS including respiratory therapy, home care nursing, and nutrition. PHS provided the family with clinical support alongside supplies and equipment to safely meet his needs.
Easton is a healthy, active boy. Recently decannulated, the whole family is loving life at home, together.
“At home, Easton can be a kid, we have the hospital level care, but he's able to be at home.”
- Rachel, Easton's mom
