Nurses are a vital part of the healthcare industry and provide medical care and support to patients. In healthcare, certified nurses providing end-of-life care to seriously ill patients are called palliative care nurses.
A palliative care nurse is a certified medical professional who can provide healthcare services and support to seriously or terminally ill patients. They may work in a hospital and hospice setting or may even travel to the patient’s home to offer care. Palliative care nurses help patients manage their symptoms better and relieve their suffering by evaluating and meeting their physical, psychological, and spiritual needs. They also offer support to the patient’s family and provide help with symptom management and educational resources.
Nurses check and record a patient’s vital signs, help them maintain hygiene, assist them with daily activities, and report details to the patient’s primary care provider.
Palliative care nurses are a source of professional comfort to patients and their families. They listen to the patient’s concerns, explain their condition and symptoms to the primary care provider, and relay information between the patient and their family.
Palliative care nurses are supposed to follow all medical regulations and the code of medical ethics. The code ensures that these medical professionals provide an empathetic environment for the patient’s treatment.
Palliative care nurses can help patients manage overwhelming emotions at the different stages of the disease and offer support to their families. They provide spiritual, physical, and psychological help to the patient and help with processing their emotions.
