Here’s How to Celebrate World Health Day and Build a Healthier World

This week World Health Day will be celebrated around the globe to raise awareness about the most current health issues facing us this year. The theme for World Health Day 2021 is “Building a fairer, healthier world for everyone” to highlight gender, social and health inequities. The healthcare industry overall, and specifically health care companies like ours at ACCESS Nursing Services, always has their “eyes on the future,” incorporating a forward-thinking vision and ever-changing policies and services that address these and all other emerging issues.

 Healthcare is rapidly changing -- for the better! Here are some of the ways:

 1.Bilingual Nurses: To properly care for a diverse population, nurses who are bilingual are essential. ACCESS Nursing Services employs bilingual nurses and home health aides who offer services in different languages, including Cantonese, Korean, Mandarin, Russian, Spanish and Tagalog. Bilingual nurses can improve the quality of care because they are able to help patients understand medical terms, symptoms and treatments in their native language.

 2.Specialized Care: Specialty nurses in areas such as cardiology, orthopedics, eldercare and dementia, cancer, etc. can yield better patient outcomes aligned with their experience and advanced capabilities in properly adhering to a doctor’s care plan. ACCESS Nursing offers state-of-the-art knowledge across many specialties with diverse levels of clinical specializations provided by highly experienced nurses and therapists.

3.Concierge Nursing: A top-tier private nurse can provide the highest level of round-the-clock care in any preferred location. This high-level specialist can offer complete, undivided care and attention to all medical needs and ensures that the physician’s protocols are carried out with precision in the privacy and comfort of the patient’s home, hotel room, beach or mountain sanctuary, hospital or rehab facility. A Concierge Care RN can also create a care strategy to include nutritionists, vitamin infusions, naturalists, masseuses, acupuncturists, chiropractors, aromatherapists, rehab therapists, among other specialties and services that are designed to support all recovery goals and mind-body healing.

 ACCESS Nursing Services, for over 35 years, is a leading regional provider of healthcare personnel to individual patients, as well as prestigious healthcare systems throughout New York and New Jersey, including more than 2,000 private duty nurses; RNs, LPNs, Aides and caregivers in five city-center offices and seven hospital-based offices.
