    Can anyone tell me when "personal care" becomes "nursing care".

    This is only my own opinion.

    There are guidelines, but they are read differently by different authorities.

    As I understand it, things like injections, catheterisation, intravenious drips come under nursing care.

    Lionel can do nothing for himself, but his needs are still classes as personal.

    No help I know, maybe we shall have the definitive answer someday.

    Nursing care

    Is there a definition of this? What does it mean? Advice needed from people who have challenged this.

    Regards
