Accumulating dust and dirt are among the other problems associated with inadequate heating, proper lighting and adequate ventilation. Of course, the nursing staff also needs to feel safe when working in the room. However, they should not be at risk of falling because of lack of proper lighting. It is up to the home nursing organization to provide the required facilities for its residents.
With this in mind, the home nursing organization should assign each resident an appropriate role. One of the roles assigned to each resident is the office of the nurses. A single person in a professional environment will definitely provide the best care for the patient. Besides, they can conduct individual or group sessions for the resident, thereby reducing the workload of the nursing staff.
Depending on the needs of the nursing home, the nursing room assignment may vary from one resident to another. The assigned role for each resident will determine the type of medical treatment they are given. The nurse assistant is often the first person to arrive at the home in case of emergencies, usually the first aid or general care needs of the patient.
This person can perform basic screening and give the patients first aid until the other members of the team arrives on the scene. Since the patient is not capable of defending himself, he will naturally prefer to be attended by a skilled member of the team. If there is no one available to perform the first aid, a medical assistant or nurse should be hired.
The nurse assistant should only attend to the patient’s status once he or she has been assessed and evaluated by the primary care provider. Once the medical team has arrived at the scene, the nurse assistant can assist the team with personal care for the patient, administer medications and document every patient’s status. This is one of the most important tasks of the nursing assistant.
On the other hand, the healthcare worker assigned to this role is given enough responsibilities in order to ensure that the work load does not increase. They should conduct a medical history, provide physical examinations, diagnose illnesses and take vital signs. A job description will be provided to them.
In addition, the caregiver’s job is to provide all the activities that the patient prefers such as, sports, hiking, playing card games, reading and so on. Any activities that the patient dislikes to participate in are given priority over his or her preferences. All these activities are supervised by the healthcare worker.
The role of the personal care helper is something that should be done in a similar manner as mentioned above. This will help the caregiver to fulfill his or her responsibility in the prescribed manner. The job description that will be given to the personal care helper will contain important information about his or her role and duties.
The role of the other members of the healthcare team can be described as supervisors or managers. While there are certain nurses who specialize in certain tasks, the role of the person assigned to this role is to see that the registered nurse, nurse assistant, medical assistant, nursing aide and the caregiver is doing his or her job correctly. It is the responsibility of the home nursing organization to specify the roles and responsibilities of the members of the staff.
The main job of the registered nurse is to check the status of the patient. She will be responsible for taking necessary measures to diagnose the disease or health condition of the patient. Once the diagnosis is final, he or she will carry out the treatments, regardless of whether the patient prefers to take drugs or not.
With the increasing demands of the healthcare industry and the pressure to deliver excellent services to their patients, it has become a requirement for all health maintenance organizations to have a nursing staff with the same skills and qualifications. This way, the organization can provide a better service to its customers and get good feedback from them.
