Nursing has evolved and now for your practice requires more than calling and good will, hence the interest of making a careful reflection on the nature of it and the importance for the nursing profession and for people to whom it is addressed.
Usually when we speak of care, we refer to the action of taking charge of another. First establish the difference between personal careand care for another. The concept of personal care according to the AAMR 1999 includes skills related to hygiene, food, clothing, hygiene and personal appearance. While the care provided by nursing staff is trying to solve the problems that stand or affect the quality of life of people.
In order to provide good patient care, first of all we must have good self-care because if we do not know howto look after ourselves we cannot carry out the care needed to help the patient. Some things to keep in mind to take a good care are:
1. Conducting personal grooming and hygiene: Conducting of hygiene and personal care independently (personal development).
2. Intimacy: Maintaining privacy in personal care activities that require it (material welfare) and respect the privacy of personal carecolleagues.
3. Helping others: to encourage support among all household members when the needs of any member so requires (relationships).
4. Use the proper tools of personal hygiene: Use of equipment needed for adequate care and their own choice (material welfare and rights).
5. Healthy eating: The development of appropriate eating habits (personal development).
6. Identify disease:Demonstration of physical discomfort (physical).
7. Look good: Decision on personal appearance (self).
8. Caring for the external image: Show an aspect adapted to different environments of social life (social inclusion).
9. Autonomy in the home: Apply the skills learned and perform the usual household activities, contributing to the achievement of common tasks.
