Hospitalization / nursing care

Contributor(s): Briony Alderson, Regula Bettschart, Jarred Williams

Introduction

  • Hospitalization for horses is becoming more common in equine practice and should involve more than just having the facility available; hospitalization is expensive on time and manpower.
  • Proper nursing care is the backbone of hospitalization and is essential to maximize patient recovery and care.
  • A record should be kept of all parameters monitored, treatments administered to each horse and all procedures performed with the time that these were recorded.
