What does a community nurse do?
A community nurse provides medical and nursing care to patients outside of traditional hospital settings. Most of their work revolves around managing and preventing diseases or illness, and they usually work in places such as health centres, clinics and home care facilities.
The tasks and responsibilities of a community nurse can include:
- Checking blood pressure, pulse rate, temperature and breathing
- Administering injections and or medication
- Assisting doctors in performing an examination or general medical procedures
- Setting up IV drips and providing ongoing care to patients
- Educating and advising patients and families on health issues and wellbeing
- Providing emergency care to patients with health complications
- Complete health assessments
- Developing and implementing care and support plans
What are the benefits?
If you’re considering Aspire Hub’s community nursing services, you might be wondering whether this service is right for you.
Here are some of the benefits:
- Improved access to care: When you receive health care services from a community nurse, you can access a range of services in your own home, including wound care, medication management, and assistance with activities of daily living. This can be especially beneficial if you are someone who has difficulty traveling to a healthcare facility, such as those with mobility issues or those who live in remote or rural areas.
- Better management of chronic conditions: Clients with chronic conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, or respiratory conditions, often require ongoing monitoring and management to prevent complications and maintain their health. If you have a chronic condition, community nurses can provide the care you need, helping to reduce the need for hospitalisation and emergency department visits.
- Personalised support from a dedicated team: Community nursing provides personalised support from a dedicated team. At Aspire Hub, our community nurses work closely with clients and their families to develop individualised care plans that meet their unique needs and preferences.
- An important advisory: Community nursing also provides an important educational and advisory service for you and your family, offering information on various aspects of healthcare. A community nurse can provide a level of emotional support and can help to connect you and your loved ones with other healthcare providers and community resources.
- Improved quality of life: Having a community nurse in your corner can help improve your independence and quality of life. By receiving care and support in your home, you can maintain your autonomy and remain connected to your community.
