Short-Term Nursing Services

We can assist you whether you need a caretaker for a few hours a day or a qualified nurse for an entire shift. We recognise that each facility has unique demands and strive to deliver a service that is suited to your specifications.

Long-Term Nursing Services

Long-term nursing is generally required when a patient has been discharged from the hospital but is not yet well enough to return home. This care is sometimes needed when a family member cannot care for an elderly or disabled relative.

Long-term nursing can be arranged on a flexible basis to suit your needs. For example, you may only require nursing care for a few hours a day or need around-the-clock supervision. We will work with you to develop a care plan that meets the needs of your loved one.

The differences between private nursing and nursing in public healthcare

One of the key differences between private nursing and nursing in public healthcare facilities is the level of pay. Nurses working in the private sector generally earn a higher salary than those working in the public sector.

Another difference is the amount of time each nurse spends with patients. In public hospitals, nurses are often required to care for many patients and may have less time to spend with each patient. On the other hand, private nurses often have fewer patients and more time to spend with each one.

There are advantages and disadvantages to both private and public nursing.

Some of the benefits of private nursing include the following:

  • Nurses in the private sector generally earn a higher salary than those in the public sector.
  • Private nurses often have fewer patients and more time to spend with each.
  • Private hospitals often have better facilities and resources than public hospitals.

Some of the disadvantages of private nursing include the following:

  • Private hospitals can be more expensive for patients.
  • Private nurses may have less job security than public nurses.
  • Private hospitals may not be as accessible to everyone.

Some of the advantages of public nursing include the following:

  • Public hospitals are usually more accessible to everyone.
  • Public nurses typically have more job security than private nurses.
  • Public hospitals often provide care for a broader range of patients.

Some of the disadvantages of public nursing include the following:

  • Private hospitals may have more suitable facilities and resources than public hospitals.
  • Public nurses often have to care for many patients and may have less time to spend with each patient.
  • Nurses in the public sector generally earn a lower salary than those working in the private sector.

Each type of nursing has its advantages and disadvantages. It is essential to weigh the pros and cons of each type of nursing before deciding which one is right for you.
