What’s a Hospital Sitter?
For some people, visiting the hospital can be a scary time. Elderly and the terminally ill who not used to their surrounding may experience bouts of anxiety relating to these visits as they understand their health may be declining. The term “Hospital Sitters” is becoming an increasingly common and legitimate part of a well-supported hospital stay. As a Caregiver in this sort of role, hospital sitters can make a tremendous impact on a patient’s time while hospitalized by offering a mindful eye, discouraging risky behaviors and keeping medical staff and nurses alert of any complications that may arise. Ten percent of fatal falls in Seniors occur in hospitals. Medical staffs are constantly busy and are far outnumbered by the amount of people they are to tend to, a hospital sitter can make a world of difference for a stay of any length.
