Nurses can be Entrepreneurs
This program is written using a “healthy feet” routine foot care practice as an example, but any niche of nursing care could be applicable.
Private or Mobile Foot Care
Some states allow nurses to develop their own treatment practices in various treatment modalities–Routine Foot Care is just one. The legal parameters are mapped out in the state’s practice guidelines and can provide the freedom and opportunities never before enjoyed in the nurses’ professional lives.
Foot Care of the Elderly
Americans are living longer and the numbers of elderly and diabetics are increasing quickly. Many will be suffering from chronic conditions, such as diabetes and others that require special care of their feet, and the med-surg nurse can be the one providing it.
Ulcers can occur on pressure point areas, including the heels of the feet, which can progress from no symptoms to an ulcer needing acute care within 48 hours. Patients benefit from a nurse’s assessment, prevention and care of these conditions on the feet.
Long Term Care Patients
Foot care in this setting is critical as poor foot care may allow the development of severe lesions on the feet and legs of patients, with potentials for amputation and death. It is imperative nurses in this setting know foot care to reduce the suffering and morbidity of patients.
Podiatry Offices and Diabetic Foot Care Clinics
Trained nurses can lighten the load for podiatrists and physicians by performing Routine Foot Care and dramatically increasing patient treatment numbers. Many physicians and podiatrists are looking for relief from RFC so they can concentrate on more critical care.
Home Care Nurses
Nurses can perform foot care for home-bound patients. No, or poor, foot care can cause ulcers and other serious infections on the feet. A nurse trained in assessment and Routine Foot Care is providing important prevention and treatment care to these patients.
