Flight nurses are a part of a larger team that often involves flight paramedics, flight physicians and respiratory practitioners. When the case is not so serious, the flight nurse can accompany the patient alone.
Aeromedical evacuation is not common, so not many private or institutional clients always have flight nurses at hand. At Practical Nursing Agency, we are here to provide you with quality flight nurses on an ad hoc basis. Our highly qualified nurses are ready to report to work on short notice and jump right in the middle of the action.
Responsibilities of a Flight Nurse
Flight nurses are part of a team of aeromedical evacuation personnel aboard helicopters or aeroplanes; the nurse has various roles on the plane, among them managing and caring for all types of patients.
One of the primary roles of a flight nurse is to ensure the safety and comfort of the patient and administer the necessary patient care. The nurse has to evaluate the needs of the patients during the flight and see to it the proper equipment, medication and supplies are provided for the patient.
The flight nurse can also perform initial emergency care where a medical physician is not present. With the great responsibilities of the profession, flight nurses receive extensive and intense training to equip them with the skills to offer high-quality care even in high-pressure environments.
