Nursing is a specialized field of healthcare that involves the promotion, protection, and optimization of health and abilities. Nurses provide services such as: prevention of illness and injury, facilitation of healing, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response. In regard to home health care, nurses provide their services from the comfort of a client’s home. A home care nurse is actually a registered nurse or licensed practical nurse that is dedicated to providing assistance to the elderly, or any other patient who is unable to leave the home. Common duties of home care nurses include injections, medication administration, wound care, and intravenous services. An important thing to keep in mind is that home care nurses provide specifically provide services related to medical care, as opposed to daily living care that would be provided by a home care helper. By providing medical services from within the home, those who have trouble with movement or who do not have the means to visit a specialized medical center have access to professional medical treatments to recover from or manage their conditions and symptoms.
