How to use caregiver in a sentence?

  1. Andrew Kung:

    Even in that setting, we found that just half of the time when a caregiver was positive did the kid also test positive, this suggests that there is something about kids that makes them less susceptible not just to the development of symptoms but to the infection itself.

  2. Katherine Ornstein:

    It really speaks to the fact that the challenging job of a caregiver is not necessarily restricted to a few months before one dies, certainly individuals are more vulnerable at the end of life. Support for caregivers may be more urgent at the end of life but important through critical illness.

  4. Janet Frank:

    In general, Utah Valley Hospital is an advocate for skin-to-skin contact between a mother and newborn directly after birth. Skin-to-skin is a best practice with proven benefits for both mom and baby. We do everything possible to allow skin-to-skin after both vaginal and C-section births, in the case of a C-section, where the bedside caregiver is occupied caring for the mother during surgery, an additional nurse is brought into the OR to allow the infant to remain in the OR suite with the mother. This is to ensure both patients remain safe. There is an additional charge associated with bringing an extra caregiver into the OR. The charge is not for holding the baby, but for the additional caregiver needed to maintain the highest levels of patient safety.

  5. Monica Moreno:

    We also encourage families to pick the right time to travel, peak activity time at an airport can create extra agitation. Go at a time where there’s less people, shorter lines, it can also help the caregiver.
