High Dependency Nursing

High dependency patients in the ICU and the HDU require 24-7 care.

Practical Nursing Agency offers competent, experienced and best-in-sector high dependency nurses who know the protocols and procedures of high dependency units.

With our help, you can meet your staffing needs and continue delivering unrivalled quality care to patients who require highly personalised care. Our high dependency nurses are available for private clients and health facilities looking for the best and extensively trained high dependency nurses.

The Role of High Dependency Nurses

The high dependency unit is one of the most challenging to work in. Only the best, most compassionate nurses can work here after thorough training. Some of the duties our high dependency nurses are expected to complete at different facilities include:

  • Tracking life support equipment like heart monitors
  • Responding rapidly to changes in the patient’s conditions
  • Infusing blood products and monitoring the patient for reactions
  • Identifying the patient’s needs according to age and level of consciousness and creating a care plan to meet those needs.
  • Administering medications through intravenous or gastric tubes, orally, by injection, or other methods according to the patient’s condition.

Besides these medical roles, a high dependency nurse should be aware of the extreme stress that the patient and their family are going through. The nurse should be empathetic and remain calm in all situations.  At Practical Nursing Agency, we are aware of the vital role high dependency nurses play in this critical life moments. That is why we only choose the best and most qualified for our private and institutional clients to guarantee the best quality of life at all times.
