Geriatric Nursing

Geriatric Nursing is a comprehensive source for clinical information and management advice relating to the care of older adults.  Geriatric nurses are some of the most important professionals in this field, specially trained to be able to perform traditional nursing duties with unique needs. A geriatric nurse should be responsible for – 

  • measuring and recording vital signs
  • administering medications
  • exercising and massaging patients
  • watching for signs of elder abuse
  • transporting patients to doctor’s visits and other appointments; and
  • Helping patients with their daily needs, such as bathing, dressing, and using the bathroom.

Geriatric nurses are often employed at healthcare facilities such as hospitals and clinics. They also work in residential care facilities, like nursing homes and retirement communities. Some geriatric nurses also work in home healthcare, traveling to patients’ homes to care for them there.

Geriatric nurses should be generally upbeat and cheerful people. They should also be patient, understanding, empathetic, and compassionate, with a true desire to work with aging patients because the main motto of it is to provide a allover care to geriatrics.
