Nursing care _

The excellence in the service of the patient
_

Undergoing constant changes in order to meet our patients’ needs and expectations, the Clinique de La Source takes pride in perpetuating our traditions of hospitality and quality treatment that compel us to surpass ourselves in every area.

In the context of the Clinique’s role as a medical establishment, taking care of a patient implies paying special attention to a person as well to his family, who is in a particular situation, with the aim to help him find his balance and harmony, to promote his well-being, as well as calling on him to use his inner resources.

Taken from the Concept of nursing care, Clinique de La Source, 1998

The Clinique de La Source attaches great importance to an irreproachable quality of care in warm and friendly surroundings. Our skilled medical personnel ensures that each patient is looked after and respected as a unique individual with his own culture, his history and his way of life. 

Nursing care at La Source is supervised by the nursing Management, a team which consists of the Nursing Director, two head nurses responsible for the management of the hospitalisation units, the head nurse responsible for operating theatre coordination, the nurse responsible for Hygiene, Prevention and Infection Control and the Nursing Management Assistant.
