SauteePan-I think a nurse role is really to offer care and the highest degree of safety as well as compassion to the patient.
Often the patient sees more of the nurse than the doctor and the patient often forms a bond with the nurse.
I remember during the delivery of my first child, the nurse stayed with me all day. It was wonderful. She made me feel at ease and really made the delivery so much more pleasant.
This is what a nurse role should be. I will never forget the impact that that nurse made on me and I am so grateful for her compassion and patience that she demonstrated with me.
Usually these nurses work three twelve hour’s shifts and a four hour shift on the fourth day. Nurse duties also include taking the blood pressure and heart rate of the patient and offering any medication if necessary.
