Intensive Care Nursing Agency
Intensive care nursing focuses on caring for patients that are unstable, critically ill, patients that have undergone surgeries, and those that suffer from life-threatening diseases and injuries. To say that this is a speciality field in nursing is an understatement. Keeping up with the demands and requirements of working in the ICU requires highly specialised training and experience to equip the nurses with the necessary skills to provide ICU patients with the care and support they need.
Intensive care nurses have to make split-second, life-saving decisions and respond quickly whenever the patient's status changes. Intensive care is one of the departments that should never be shorthanded. But, if you find yourself in that situation or your intensive care nurses for home care, Practical Nursing Agency can provide you with qualified and experienced nurses on the shortest notice.
What Do Intensive Care Nurses Do?
Intensive care nurses have numerous responsibilities that change depending on the condition of the patient. Some of these responsibilities include:
- Evaluation and monitoring of the patient's progress and identifying any changes in the patient's medical condition.
- Administering medications by injection, intravenously, or by gastric tubes.
- Providing doctors with regular updates on the patient’s progress.
- Responding to health emergencies and alerting the appropriate doctors
- Caring for the patient throughout their recovery journey.
- Assessing the patient’s pain level and administering the appropriate sedation medication.
Because of the demanding nature of the intensive care unit nursing job, passion plays a critical role. At Practical Nursing Agency, we find the best and most passionate intensive care nurses ready to work as a team to achieve the best results. With extensive training and years of experience, you can rest assured that our team will fit in perfectly and continue to run things smoothly and to the highest standards.
