What do nursing services entail?
What do you think of when you hear the word “nurse”? Most people envision a caring professional in scrubs or a white uniform who provides basic bedside care and comfort.
However, nursing services include various activities and responsibilities, from providing direct patient care to performing administrative tasks. They may also be responsible for developing care plans, supervising other medical staff members, and educating patients and their families about their health conditions.
Nurses play an essential role in our society, and we proudly offer high-quality nursing services to our clients.

An Overview of Short-Term Nursing Services
Short-term nursing services are designed to meet the needs of patients who require care for a brief period, typically due to an illness or injury. This type of care is usually provided in a hospital setting. Still, healthcare specialists can offer it in other locations, such as nursing homes, rehabilitation centres, and home health agencies.
We can provide short-term nursing services on an as-needed basis or on a regular schedule. We can also offer them for a specific period, such as during recovery from surgery.
Ultimately, short-term nursing services aim to help patients recover from their illness or injury and return to their normal activities.
An Overview of Long-Term Nursing Services
Long-term nursing services are designed for patients who require care for an extended period, typically due to a chronic illness or disability. This type of care is usually provided in a nursing home or other long-term care facility, but we can also offer it in the home care setting.

How does private nursing differ from nursing in public healthcare facilities?
The main difference between private nursing and nursing in public healthcare facilities is that an individual nurse usually provides private nursing. In contrast, a team of nurses usually provides nursing in public health care facilities.
Private nursing can be more expensive than nursing in public health care facilities, but it can also be more personalised and tailored to the patient’s needs. Private nursing can also be more flexible in terms of scheduling and hours.
One disadvantage of private nursing is that the nurse may have less experience than a team of nurses in a public healthcare facility. Another disadvantage is that private nursing may not be covered by insurance.
Some benefits of private nursing include the following:
- More personalised care
- More specialised nursing options
- More flexible scheduling
- The nurse can be available 24/7
- No waiting lists
Private nursing can be an excellent option for patients who need more personalised or specialised care. It is crucial to weigh the pros and cons of private nursing before deciding.
Some disadvantages of private nursing include the following:
- It may be more expensive
- The nurse may not have as much experience
- Insurance may not cover all of the costs
