Nursing Station

Home Nursing Station

OrangeCross operates “ Nursing Stations ” in large apartments/condominiums under the brand name of “ Griha Seva”. The model is designed to improve access of Nursing care by large number of families living in a gated community. Currently most of such communities do not have primary health care provider within their immediate reach. Every time they have to depend on the hospitals to get basic Nursing care for their family members. Under this service there is a provision of maintaining a nursing station where a small group of well trained nurses are kept on duty. They are provided with basic medical equipment and some of the OTC (Over the counter Drugs) to address immediate and routine care as and when necessary.

 

Under this model there is provision to have a nursing Station in a common area within the community space. The residents don’t have to depend on the hospital for their basic Nursing healthcare needs every time for small medical helps. Instead a readily available nursing facility within their community space caters to such needs.

OrangeCross Griha Seva

A set of nurses are earmarked for each of the nursing stations who are present on regular duty to attend to the patients requiring primary care. They are also trained to collect blood and other pathological samples for routine test by registered laboratories. Further these stations are supported by visits of doctors and other paramedics on special requests to cater to any other additional health care support.

 

Chronic disease management, health promotion and illness prevention, as well as helping patients navigating through the health care system in hospitals are integral part of this service.

Services

Injection

In medical care, an injection is the introduction of a drug, vaccine, contraceptive or other therapeutic agent into the body using a needle and syringe. Injections are among the most common health care procedures throughout the world.

 

It is of vital importance that injections are carried out safely, i.e. in a way that does not harm the patient or expose the health care worker to unnecessary risk, and does not result in waste that is
dangerous for the community. The use of sterile equipment for all injections is essential.

Morning care

Morning care is a hygiene routine provided by Nurses for patients at the comfort of the patient’s residents each morning. The care routine typically includes washing the face, combing hair and shaving, putting on cosmetics, toileting, getting dressed and similar activities. Nurses may also check the patients temperature, check medical equipment, replenish IV bags, change dressings, or do other daily or semi-daily tasks at this time.

 

Most morning care duties are basic activities of daily living. Different people require different levels of support for morning care, depending on their performance status. Some people may be able to complete morning care with little or no support from healthcare workers, while others may require the worker to perform all the tasks completely. Some basic housekeeping, such as changing bed sheets, may be done at the same time.

Vitals Check

Vital signs (often shortened to just vitals) are a group of the 4 to 6 most important signs that indicate the status of the body’s vital (life-sustaining) functions. These measurements are taken to help assess the general physical health of a person, give clues to possible diseases, and show progress toward recovery. The normal ranges for a person’s vital signs vary with age, weight, gender, and overall health.

 

There are four primary vital signs: body temperature, blood pressure, pulse (heart rate), and breathing rate (respiratory rate), often notated as BT, BP, HR, and RR.

 

Early warning scores have been proposed that combine the individual values of vital signs into a single score. This is done in recognition that deteriorating vital signs often precede cardiac arrest
and/or admission to the intensive care unit. Used appropriately, a rapid response team can assess and treat a deteriorating patient and prevent adverse outcomes.

Dressing

A dressing is a sterile pad or compress applied to a wound to promote healing and protect the wound from further harm. A dressing is designed to be in direct contact with the wound, as distinguished from a bandage, which is most often used to hold a dressing in place. Many modern dressings are self-adhesive.

Special Care

We are offering special health care services in large Apartments/condominiums.

Nasogastric Feeding

A nasogastric tube (NG tube) is a special tube that carries food and medicine to the stomach through
the nose. It can be used for all feedings or for giving a person extra calories.

Nebulization

Nebulisation is a drug delivery process used to administer medication in the form of a mist inhaled into the lungs. Nebulizers are commonly used for the treatment of asthma, cystic fibrosis, COPD and other respiratory diseases or disorders.

Catheter Care

Foley catheter (a thin, flexible tube) placed in the bladder to drain urine. It’s held inside
patient’s bladder by a balloon filled with water. There are parts of the catheter outside patient’s body which need care every day. This involves cleaning the catheter, changing the drain collection bags, and washing the drainage bags.

Bedsore Care

Our Nurses can undertake the task of Bed sore dressing at patient’s home eliminating the need for shifting the patient to hospital for such care.

Apart from the above mention services we also provide NG Tube, Catheter care, Suction.

Companionship

Companion care is primarily emotional support and companionship for seniors who are generally healthy and who want to remain independent at home. However, it can also include a range of non-medical services that help make a senior’s life more manageable.

 

The role of companion care may change based on the seniors and their needs. In general terms, companion care spans both the social and physical care of a senior or a couple. The goal of companion care as a service is to:

  • Provide emotional support
  • Improve the quality of life of the senior
  • Provide companionship for the senior

Medical escort service

Trained nurse are provided in cases where a client with a serious/deteriorating health condition needs to be shifted to hospital where monitoring is required during shifting. In cases where the patient is staying alone and needs help during his hospital visits, our Nurses can accompany such patients to the hospitals and help him navigate through various processes inside the hospital and bring him back to his/her home.
