The nursing care unit is intended to receive patients who need minor emergency or non-emergency treatment such as injections, wound care, stitches, and staples removal. It is also the place where patients can have their vitals checked in the case of chronic disease for example.

The nurse performs most of the procedures, although some procedures are still performed by the doctor. Wondering where you can take out your stitches in Lisbon? Alegria medical centre is the place.

The course of the nursing care visit

The nurse discusses with the patient the reason for the consultation and collects the necessary information for follow-up before performing the procedure.

All nursing care can be done by the nurse except in the following cases:

  • An emergency: the patient will then be referred to the nearest emergency room.
  • A procedure requiring the intervention of a doctor: the doctor in charge will be consulted.
  • An injection without a prescription: the patient will have to meet the doctor in charge to get a prescription.
