General Nursing

What do we mean by general nursing?

General nursing care involves a wide range of facets relating to resident care and support. Qualified staff play a critical role in ensuring that residents receive high-quality care that promotes their physical and emotional well-being, and supports overall health.

Some of the key aspects of general nursing care include:

Assessing residents’ health and developing care plans: Assessments of physical and emotional health, and developing care plans that address their specific needs. This may involve collaborating with other healthcare professionals, such as doctors and therapists, to develop a comprehensive plan of care.

Administering medications and treatments: Qualified staff are responsible for administering medications and treatments as prescribed. They are also responsible for monitoring the individual’s response to these interventions and liaising with other professionals to adjust the treatment plan as needed.

Monitoring vital signs: Monitoring the resident’s vital signs, such as blood pressure, heart rate, and respiratory rate, to ensure that they are within normal ranges. They may also monitor other indicators of health, such as fluid intake and output, to ensure that the resident is receiving appropriate care.

Assisting with activities of daily living: Aid residents with activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, and eating. They may also help residents with mobility and transfer, and provide support to residents who are unable to perform these tasks independently.

Supporting residents and their families: Supporting residents and their families regarding their health conditions and treatment options. They may guide medication management, nutrition, exercise, and other lifestyle factors that can impact the individual’s health.

Social and recreational activities: Providing opportunities for socialisation and engagement in recreational activities, such as games, music, and art therapy. These activities are designed to promote social connections and mental stimulation.
