How's the work?

Nursing homes provide residential care for the elderly or the disabled. Nursing homes are used by people who do not need to be in a hospital but cannot be cared for at home. As a licensed practical nurse (verzorgende IG) you work in low to medium complex care situations that are predictable and not life-threatening. You are expected to work in a team as well as independently. The work may consist of technical nursing work and to a large extent basic care activities, also known as activities of daily living, assist in bathing and dressing residents, assisting residents with meals, either serving or feeding, transferring from and to the bed or wheelchair, making and cleaning the beds, assisting with visits to the toilet. Additionally you will be responsible for the total care for one or more residents, e.g. updating the family of the resident, communicating with the doctor, physiotherapist, dietitian and writing care plans. Of course all of this goes in the Dutch language.
