Public Health Nurses in Ireland are employed by the Health Service Executive (H.S.E.) to provide a range of health care services in the community. They are usually based in your local health centre and may be your first contact with the health services. The service consists of both home and health centre visits.
The Public Health Nurse can assist you with many problems and should be the first person to contact when in need of advice or information regarding health or services you may require.
The service is not necessarily confined to Medical Card holders.
Public Health Nurses provide a skilled Nursing Service to ill patients in the home and clinic setting and aftercare following discharge from hospital. In order to achieve maximum health and social gain, needs assessment of the elderly is carried out and services sourced/provided when necessary.
