The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about unprecedented changes in various aspects of life, including healthcare, the economy, and socialization. The healthcare industry, in particular, has been hit hard by the pandemic, with healthcare workers at the forefront of the challenges. Nurses, in particular, are facing burnout and shifting preferences for their work environments.
Recent surveys show that the rate of nurses leaving the profession is rapidly increasing, with 90% of them considering leaving the profession and 71% of those nurses reporting at least 15 years of experience. Rather than leaving the profession altogether, nurses can consider the benefits of home healthcare positions compared to working in the hospital environment.
At Curodoc, we provide Home healthcare services for elderly patients, offering a range of benefits for both nurses and patients.
Home Healthcare Benefits for Nurses
Home care expenditures are expected to reach $201B by 2028, a 73% increase from 2020, according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). This increase in funds will allow nurses to easily transition from intense hospital environments to individualized home care settings.
Home healthcare provides nurses with the opportunity to provide high-quality, individualized care and have more autonomy in one-on-one settings. Schedules can be more flexible and customized to best fit the needs of the patient as well as the nurse. Physically, home health care is less demanding on nurses, which can be a great transition for beleaguered nurses used to working 12-hour shifts with little to no breaks.
Moreover, nurses working in the home healthcare industry can more easily see the fruits of their labour. Patients are able to demonstrate their progress by completing daily household tasks, all thanks to the hard work and dedication of their home health nurse. This adds a uniquely fulfilling experience for nurses, which may not be as common in many hospital settings.
Home Healthcare Benefits for Patients
During the onset of the pandemic, emergency room visits declined by nearly 50%, as individuals who were sick or injured during the initial stages of the pandemic were less likely to go to hospitals to seek care in fear of contracting the virus. This shifting view of hospitals and healthcare at large has resulted in patients, especially elderly ones, preferring to receive care in the comfort of their own homes.
At Curodoc, we provide personalized care to elderly patients in the comfort of their own homes, ensuring their safety, well-being, and independence.
