When we think of nurses, many think of the words “efficient” or “diligent” or “professional”. However, at Passionate Private Duty, a provider of both home nursing care and non-medical home care in Illinois, we believe that home health solutions should be delivered with utmost compassion as well as expertise. We’ve compiled a list of ways in which nursing care can make a difference in a patient’s life.
- Emotional support for patients during a procedure
When a patient is about to undergo treatment, a compassionate nurse will tell the patient what he or she is doing exactly, what to expect, and how long it will take. A caring nurse will also offer a hand to hold if the patient is scared or confused. This is the kind of experience that will help a patient with ongoing treatments in the future.
- The pain won’t matter as much
The last thing a patient wants to go through is a painful procedure; but with a compassionate nurse in charge, the patient can focus more on the benefits of the treatment rather than the pain. A nurse who gives words of encouragement and support can help a patient focus on the positive side of things.
- Making a new friend
A life wrought with health challenges can be incredibly difficult, and you’ll need all the support you can get. You may have family and friends to lift you up regularly, but sometimes, you could also use kind words and love from the professionals who are regularly administering your treatments. A compassionate nurse is someone who won’t hesitate to talk about your day with you.
- You’ll be happy
Medical procedures don’t actually bring a smile to our face. These types of treatments make us anxious and nervous. With the right nurse in charge, you might even look forward to your treatments, to getting better and living the life you deserve.
