Do You Need A Registered Nurse?
When you are dealing with an aging loved one, a number of issues can arise. You want to make sure your loved one is getting the right type of care. Ask yourself, “Will a regular caregiver do or do I need a registered nurse?” Here are a few things registered nurses can do. If you see your loved one’s situation on the list, you may be better off with senior home care that includes skilled nursing.
After your loved one’s surgery, post-surgical care can be difficult to do alone. At home, you might be able to provide some bed-side care but it might not be as efficient as the hospital. If you are unable to be around your loved one at all times, a registered nurse might be better at providing recovery aid. Having a nurse around, can give you a peace of mind since your loved one is getting the care they need. Nurses can take care of and manage wounds, medications, and can even give intravenous medications, if necessary.
When your loved one has a diagnosis that requires critical care, you want them to be as comfortable and happy as possible. Because it can be hard to do alone, you should not be the only one handling the day-to-day care of your loved one’s health. A nurse can help administer medications and see to the everyday care of your loved one so you are able to enjoy the time you have with them.
As your loved one ages, you may notice more and more pill bottles appearing. If both you and your loved one can’t keep track of it all, this could be risky. A caregiver may be able to help sort things out, but you are safer with a registered nurse who knows the medications inside and out of what can and cannot be mixed. Getting the proper help your loved one needs guarantees their safety and health.
