Making House Calls: ACCESS Concierge Care Private Nursing Explodes Amid COVID-19

Concierge Care private nursing has taken off in the age of COVID-19. The top reasons cited for this is that it's convenient and safe.  According to a FOX News Report,  “Hospitals are at capacity. They are understaffed and overwhelmed. It is also becoming riskier to go into a facility for treatment because you are susceptible to exposure once you step through those doors, despite best efforts. Many individuals are reverting back to the early days of medicine where it was common for doctors to visit your home,” says Dr. Abe Malkin, who was interviewed by FOX for this report. 

Concierge Care is not a new industry.  ACCESS Nursing Services has been providing top-level Concierge nursing care long before the COVID-19 pandemic.  Research around the world over the past 25 years shows that because of concierge medical services, patients recover faster, have fewer complications and are more satisfied, while costs can be a third lower . 

A Concierge Care Nurse is an RN that provides specialized nursing care to patients in a variety of settings, including the hospital, a rehabilitation center, even a hotel or at home. Concierge Care nurses are often recommended by healthcare professionals for patients with Dementia, Alzheimer’s; cardiac surgery; MS, ALS, Paraplegia; orthopedic surgery; falls risk; and COVID-19. 

Here are the Top 3 Benefits of Concierge Care (Aside from Safety and Convenience)

  • You Don’t Need to Leave Home

With the fear of contracting COVID-19 in mind, you don’t have to worry about waiting in a crowded waiting room with others who may be sick. You can receive care from the safety and comfort of your home, hotel, rehabilitation facility, or just about anywhere.

  • 24/7 ACCESS

Long gone are the days of having to wait until the morning to receive care. Concierge Care is based on your schedule -- whether it’s 10pm or 3am, someone is there for you when you need them. For patients who suffer from diabetes, respiratory illnesses or cardiovascular disease it is important to have access to care immediately as these patients are at a much higher risk for complications should they contract COVID-19.

  • 100% Personalized Care

Whether you are recovering from COVID-19, a surgery or healing from an injury or illness you will receive one-on-one individualized care to direct your medical needs, including  your medications and treatment.
