Bed-ridden Patient Nursing Care at Home in Trivandrum | Kochi
A diagnosis of a patient that leads to confinement to their bed is devastating, not only for the person receiving the diagnosis but for their family members, friends, and other loved ones as well. It’s a life-changing event that fundamentally alters the circumstances in which people suddenly find themselves. One of the services in Neogencare is bed-ridden patient nursing care in Trivandrum & Kochi.
Most bed-ridden patients are terribly ill and confined to their bed until they recover with little or less support from their own self. Very old people might also be bed-ridden because of weakness or pain.
Apart from the illness, being bed-ridden also leads to many complications such as loss of muscle strength and endurance. Contractures, osteoporosis from disuse and the degeneration of joints can also occur. Being confined to bed can add to the likelihood of developing an increased heart rate, decreased cardiac output, hypotension, and thromboembolism. People with disabilities who are bed-ridden are at risk for developing pressure sores and are at risk in a house fire due to their lack of mobility. Showering also becomes impossible. Bedsores develop if a person spends most or all of the day in bed without changing position. This may result in a person remaining passive and withdrawn. The inability to transfer to a chair and the negative attitudes of caregivers results in continued confinement to bed and reduction of such requests. Such patients also are at risks related to falls. Falling from a bed can result in an injury.
Here at Neogencare, we empathize with the needs of the bed-ridden patients and provide quality medical needs. In addition to staying healthy, all of these things will go a long way towards helping your loved ones to keep up their morale and self-esteem.
We help prevent Bedsores (also known as pressure sores) and injuries to the skin and underlying tissues that result from sitting or lying in a single position for long periods of time. The prolonged sitting puts pressure on parts of the body such as the buttocks, legs, and thighs that can cause the skin to breakdown and break apart. The end result is that the area becomes extremely painful and uncomfortable and in the worst-case scenario is that bedsores can become infected and result in major complications that can shorten life. Our expert nursing staffs make sure that home care for bed-ridden patients remains proactive and frequently check these common areas for bedsores.
Everyone knows the importance of eating a healthy diet and such a nutritious diet is even more important and critical for patients who are ill or recovering from treatment, such as surgery. We provide a well-balanced diet and restrict the intake of unnecessary calories. We also keep a track of nutrient and protein intake and ensure patients remain healthy and fit on bed too.
We cater to your loved-one’s physiology, monitor eating habits and record meals in a journal for reference when speaking with a doctor, or in case you notice anything unusual after eating certain foods.
For bed-ridden young and elderly at home, we craft a Comfortable Environment, since our immediate surroundings play a huge role in our emotional well-being, so take a few moments to make sure that the individual’s environment is as comfortable and hospitable as possible.
During bed-ridden nursing home care, we employ Patience and Empathy. We realise that even with the best of intentions, it can be easy to lose patience, not feel appreciated or become a little overwhelmed. So, we ensure in bed-ridden patient care, we communicate and keep their morale high. Talking to them allows us to offer them some much-needed emotional support.
These services are best provided by professionally trained caregivers who understand even the smallest need of such patients. We believe in working on the overall health of the patient and work towards complete recovery.
