Healthcare Staffing Services
Island Temporary Nursing (ITN) provides professional staff for a variety positions within the healthcare industry.
Temporary Healthcare Facility Staffing
ITN recognizes the importance of maintaining appropriate staff-to-patient ratios in clinics, hospitals, and other healthcare facilities. ITN staff are carefully selected based on their skills, compassion, dependability, dedication, and experience. All ITN staff possess the required state licenses as applicable. ITN provides:
- Certified Nurse Aides
- Licensed Practical Nurses
- Registered Nurses
While many people receive care from family, friends, and the community, ITN recognizes that these options are not always available and practical. In such cases, ITN can provide professional staff who specialize in services that cater to the client's needs in the most comfortable of settings, their home. ITN provides the following home care staff options:
Companion services may include, but not be limited to, conversing and reading to clients, medication reminders, and playing games. Chore services may include, but not be limited to, meal preparation and light housekeeping (vacuum, dust, bath and kitchen clean-up, bed making and linen change, laundry, mopping and sweeping).
Skilled Care Aides
In addition to providing all services offered by a Companion/Chore Aide, Skilled Care Aides also assist with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), which may include but not be limited to, bathing, personal grooming, dressing, range of motion exercises, toilet assistance, walking, taking vital signs, and helping with pre-poured medications.
Respite (Short-term) Care Aides
In cases when a primary caregiver is unavailable due to a planned temporary absence, unexpected illness, or emergency, ITN staff can provide short-term supportive care and supervision to a client.
Community Access Aides
Access to the community is a critical part of a person’s life as it brings independence, support, and happiness. Whether it be a trip to the movies, grocery store, doctor, or library, ITN staff can provide the expertise needed to safely guide clients outside their home without worry.
* Please note that all ITN Home Care Aides are not allowed to drive for clients.
