Nursing Home Nurses
Working in a nursing home requires in-depth training and knowledge of the conditions associated with ageing and the likely complications. Nurses working in a nursing home have their work cut out for them. They are professionals and become like family to the residents, providing a homely feeling in a highly professional environment where all the patient’s needs are catered to quickly and effectively.
Nursing home nurses need to be diverse. Practical Nursing Agency understands this need. That’s why we have an extensive team of nursing home nurses who are well-trained and have years of experience working in different care homes.
Our team of nursing home nurses can work in different facilities, whether private, run by charities or local councils. The nurses can also provide nursing care at home for those that still have some independence.
The Role of Nursing Home Nurses
Nursing homes employ various types of nursing home nurses to complete multiple tasks. Each level of nursing works in tandem with other sections to provide high-quality nursing care:
Nursing aides and assistants
This is the lowest tier of nursing home nurses. They handle basic tasks under the supervision of licensed practical nurses. These duties include helping patients with personal hygiene, helping patients complete tasks like going to the bathroom, emptying catheters and changing bedpans. This group of nurses can also maintain patient records, dietary care and prevention of bedsores, among other tasks.
Licensed practical nurses
The next tier is the LPNs, who work under the supervision of registered nurses. They perform many of the same tasks as the nursing aides and assistants. They can also complete more advanced duties like monitoring respiration, blood pressure, oxygen levels, heart rates and temperature in the patients. They can also insert catheters, treat bedsores, give injections and administer medications.
RNs hold the highest nursing position in nursing homes. They are tasked with overseeing the activities of the rest of the nursing staff. Registered nurses are responsible for overseeing the patient’s overall health and medical history. Their primary goal is to ensure every person in the nursing home receives the best care possible.
