What hours do I work?
Our nurses stay with their Clients for the duration of their assignment and are normally expected to work seven days a week, ten hours a day; this excludes a daily two hour break that is arranged between the Client and the Nurse.
Although Nurses must be available for overtime and night calls (a usual maximum of two calls per night), Consultus recommends that their Nurses get eight hours uninterrupted sleep each night. If this is not possible on a regular basis then other arrangements need to be made for night calls or awake-nights.
This may necessitate employing two nurses working day and night or employing the services of a local agency.
