24/7 On Call Nursing Services
Who are we?
The Medical Society Nurses are on call for all types of medical services listed below, with the guidance of our Doctors and other experts to provide care 24/7, nationwide.
What is our purpose?
We aim to provide you with expert care and support by bringing you the highest quality nursing services and treatment in the comfort of your home.
Our services include:
Infusion Care Services
Infusion therapy is when medication is delivered through a needle into a vein. Providing this service in a home setting is safe, cost-effective and convenient for patients.
Wound care for venous ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, pressure sores and other moderate to severe wounds if your condition is stable and hospital admission is not required.
Palliative Care improves the quality of life of patients who are facing problems associated with a life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering and pain.
This service offers home visits for mothers and their babies. Care is individualised to meet your needs and can include a visit within 3 days from birth and subsequent visits as required.
After-Hospital Home Care
In-home care is a key resource for a safe and successful recovery. We provide multidisciplinary home care in South Africa for patients requiring after-hospital care.
We care about you and want to ensure that you receive the best possible care when you need it most. Our nurses will be provided with the necessary consumables, medication and personal protective gear, as required.
Our hands-on Portfolio Managers are also available to manage all requests and to support both you and the nursing network.
