Nurses take patients to their medical appointments while they are in hospital or in the home care unit, following the ethical principles that are implicit in their professional code and remaining at the patient’s side while they are being cared for. This care includes: comprehensive and continuous care during consultations, on admission to the hospital, during treatment, and in planning their discharge and subsequent check-ups.
