“And what nursing has to do in either case, is to put the patient in the best condition for nature to act upon him.”
These words were spoken by Florence Nightingale, one of the world’s most revolutionary figures in the field of nursing. These words couldn’t be truer, especially in the times and the century we now live in. Great Nursing Services are a rare gem that are waiting to be discovered – these can mostly be found in a nurse at home.
Nurses at home have often been referred to as one’s very own Florence Nightingale, a fairy god mother or most commonly, ‘little angels.’ This is because when a patient is in need of round-the clock care, a warm, friendly nurse who is both physically and educationally equipped to handle the patient’s needs can literally be a life saver. Not only are they trained to identify telling signs of when a patient’s life may be in danger; in which case prompt action may save their lives, but also guide and nurture the patient to the restoration of health.
To give you a visual, a nurse at home will essentially be with the patient at all times of the day – even when the patient is asleep. They will monitor, care for and be alert to the patient and any alarming changes that may require attention. Wherever the patient goes, your personal nurse will follow; whether it is for bathroom runs, running errands in the house or even sitting up for a cup of chai or movie. Using wonderful Nursing Services also means the patient is well groomed, maintains hygiene and ensures that the surrounding environment is adjusted to the well-being of the patient. This makes recovery so much easier.
The benefit to the patient is that not only can they receive adequate care at home, they are able to sleep in their own comfortable bed, establish a routine that is suitable to them and receive the care and concern that is tailor made to their medical needs and personality type. It also means that their medication is strictly monitored, vitals are frequently checked and meals are served at the correct time. It is these small little factors that help a patient who is suffering and recuperating.
Moreover, by using home nursing services, the patient is offered company and friendship throughout the day. This plays a vital role as it may prevent depression, emotional fatigue and combat loneliness. Nurses are especially great at this because they are able to understand the situation and the struggles of the patient in a way that family members may not.
As Florence Nightingale says, the nurse puts the patient in the best possible condition that they can be – and that’s why we call them angels. There is no one with more patience, kindness, compassion and skill than the nurses that care for patients at home. That’s why we’re so proud of the people that we get to deploy through our home nursing services.
