How assumptions affect nursing care

When considering how assumptions affect nursing care, it is important to recognise the potential risk of those assumptions not being a true reflection of an individual’s nursing care needs or preferences.

To avoid this, Somerset Care takes a person-centred approach to planning and delivering nursing care which is tailored to the individual. This involves the individual and their loved ones in decisions about their nursing care, ensuring that they not only receive care which meets their needs, but also can feel at home in their nursing care home.

Person-centred nursing care considers all aspects of an individual’s wellbeing – this includes their physical health and management of any medical conditions, as well as their emotional health and interests. Rather than making assumptions about their nursing care, taking a person-centred approach to nursing puts the individual in charge of decisions about the support they receive in a nursing care home. This enables them to remain as independent as possible, whilst receiving nursing care which empowers them to live the life they choose.
