As summer has come to an end, student nurses have returned back to school. Many nursing students have been assisting in care homes for the summer. Although some student nurses might be able to come back and work over the weekends, this is not always possible.
Nurses are in high demand these days.
Some days, clinics have a nurse shortage and often need last-minute help due to a call-in. Such clinics may only require a nurse to fill-in for the day, and that’s usually not always an easy problem to solve.
Ethically and otherwise, healthcare facilities have to have enough nurse staff on hand, so they can adequately care for the medical needs of all patients without overworking their nurses.
Despite the pandemic pitfalls, long-term care homes (LTC) are still a viable option for many families instead of homecare.
Nurses are the backbone of long-term care homes. They provide essential medical and emotional support to residents every day.
