1 Day Home Nursing Skills Course
Caring for someone who is bed-bound can be challenging and can cause pain and discomfort for the carer and a lack of dignity for the person in receipt of care if procedures are not planned and carried out correctly.
This is a highly practical course where delegates will have the opportunity to consider the various tasks associated with personal care, such as:
- Bathing and washing
- Oral care
- Eye care
- Hair hygiene
- Skin care and pressure area management
- Eating and drinking
- Nail care
- Giving medication
- Positioning in the bed and chair
Delegates will be required to take part in role play, washing, feeding and caring for someone in bed (great fun, very enlightening and educational).
