Private Nurses in Australia

Individuals with chronic conditions or are recovering from surgery may need routine nursing care. However, the commute and long wait times at hospitals can be costly, time-consuming and extremely inconvenient.

Besides potentially unpleasant experiences, the cost and hassle can also lead to also patients putting off their appointments and not receiving the care they need – especially for those who live alone or have mobility concerns. This may lead to health complications and hospital re-admissions, which are not ideal for the care recipient.

Other reasons to engage private nurses include unforeseen circumstances, such as the displacement of a nasogastric tube (NG tube). In these situations, speed is key. Having to travel to a hospital and then wait in line may cause further complications.

Thankfully, with private nursing care, you can get the care you need delivered to your doorstep within hours. There is no need to queue or travel.

What Can Private Nursing Care Help With?

Simple Nursing Care

Assist with simple nursing procedures such as changing of feeding tubes and suctioning.

Complex Nursing Procedures

From injections to wound care, have your nursing procedures done safely in the comfort of home.

Medication Administration

No more missed doses. Our nurses can help dispense and administer the right dosage of medication at the right time.

Post-Surgery

Focus on recovery and leave the complex nursing care in the hands of our experienced nurse Care Pros.

Vital Signs Monitoring

Keep track of your loved one’s health as our Care Pros help to record temperature, pulse and/or blood pressure readings.

Specialised Nursing Care in the Privacy of Home

No more venturing out of the home when you need nursing care. With the help of in-home care nurses, have your nursing procedures done in the comfort of home instead.

With skilled hands and a meticulous heart, experienced and qualified nurses will bring nursing care to your doorstep and complete the nursing procedures with care, dedication and no queue time.

Equipped with specialised expertise and knowledge, private nurses can support with medication administration on top of performing nursing procedures. If you require help with both nursing and daily home care, private nurses can help too.

An additional benefit of having private nurses in your home is that they may be able to identify potential safety risks at home and recommend simple modifications such as placing a rug on a slippery floor.
