We look for child nurse. 4 ways: what is better? Before someone to look for

, it is necessary to be defined for itself what nurse is necessary to us: preferable age, education, the schedule of work, payment (including hospital and holidays), duties, requirements. A possibility of after-hour work (in the evenings, during week-end, holidays), a possibility of departure on the dacha in the summer. Presence at the nurse of the children, certain experience of work (what?) and so on.

is Practically not present
Ways of search of the nurse Pluses Minuses
Among relatives, neighbors, acquaintances. It is the person whom we know, respectively, we know what it is capable also what of to expect from it.
Rather low payment for services.
it is difficult to td to discuss questions of payment and a duty, it is awkward to demand medical certificates and other documents.
Acquaintances can appear it is aware of our family situations and problems.
the Nurse are “given“ by acquaintances. Character, abilities, habits, inquiries, otritsa. the parties of the nurse are known. except that this person can be not that who is necessary to us.
of the Announcement in newspapers, the Internet (the “work“ websites, the websites for young mothers).
Can stick announcements on the area
Economy of money: such nurse can cost less, than in agency, and prove - better. A lot of time will be taken away by telephone negotiations and selection. there is no
any guarantees of professionalism. According to announcements “on columns“ often jobless women who are no good in nurses respond.
to Address to agency on selection of house personnel. Economy of forces and time.
Presence at applicants of all necessary documents.
In case the nurse does not arrange with something - will find replacement.
High salary of the nurse + fee of agency. the Agency does not guarantee to
authenticity of documents, and also reliability and decency of the nurse.
the First telephone interview (if we look for the nurse independently) we Tell

  1. what nurse is necessary to us: to what child of age, on how many hours a day, in what days of week (separately - about holidays and days off), and also the area of residence.
  2. we Ask the nurse about its experience and skills: age, education, marital status, a registration where worked, what is the time, earlier that entered duties (as there passed it the working day) why left whether there are recommendations, the medical certificate.
  3. Is told that will enter a circle of its duties in our family.
  4. we Stipulate payment: “In how many you estimate the services?“ . We say how many we are ready to pay it.
  5. If all everything suits
  6. - we make an internal appointment.
Payment of sick-lists, holidays and “idle times“ of the nurse - an ambiguous question: everything is solved individually, depending on the one who whom values more - the nurse the work or a family as the nurse.
Increase in a salary (at preservation of former duties) is usually carried out once a year.

the Internal meeting

Can invite the nurse (and at once to check how it will find contact with the child, and children - the psychologists, best in the world). And it is possible to thrust to it on a visit (and to look as far as it is clean in life and where in general lives) - but this option (at this stage) is improbable.

Questions which are usually asked on interview:

  1. about yourself (we listen further). Leading questions - about a family, children, than they are engaged with what they grew up (if already grew). If small with whom they will be, the nurse at work so far.
  2. How many years you work with the nurse? What were engaged before in? Why you decided to become the nurse? What attracts you in this work? (It is impossible to take in nurses of the person who considers this work below the advantage.) How it seems you what qualities the nurse has to possess? And what skills? How you consider what belongs to the nurse`s duties? And what does not enter?

what it is necessary to look attentively at: as the nurse as she speaks (whether correct it has a speech) keeps, it is how valid it kind, but at the same time the attentive and responsible person also knows features of children`s development. Generally, the nurse has to be pleasant. What she tells has to be conformable to our outlooks on life and education of children. At the slightest doubts we look for another.

your dokumentik

How to check the nurse if it is the woman absolutely unfamiliar to us? The absolute way of definition whether the person is reliable and whether it is possible to trust it, alas, does not exist. But which - that can be made.

  1. It is rewritten passport data or we ask the nurse to make a passport photocopy (to check documents at the potential nurse - it is absolutely normal if refuses to show documents - we look for another). We look at a registration and existence at least of temporary registration (if the nurse illocal).
  2. we Ask to tell
  3. about each stamp in the passport (marriage / divorce, children whether lives in the place of a registration where goes to have a rest according to the international passport and so on).
  4. by
  5. It is checked the obtained data on the Internet (suddenly that will emerge) and if there is opportunity - on bases of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
  6. it is good
  7. , of course, after the nurse was pleasant to look where and in what conditions she lives.
  8. we Read to
  9. recommendations (if they are), we look at style of their writing (whether from the Internet are downloaded), existence of mistakes. We call former employers (previously having asked about them at the nurse - to verify information), we ask several questions of the nurse, its duties, than the family was satisfied / is dissatisfied. If there are no recommendations, and the nurse honestly admits it, it is possible to ask phone of a former family. If it “was suddenly lost“ or people “went to other city“ - we say goodbye to the candidate forever.
Developing attack

If the nurse was pleasant to

and arranges to all, it is possible to suggest it to work several days at our presence. These trial days can be paid in whole or in part (for example, in the half-prices) - as we will agree.

First of all we watch

whether the hand nurse washed as came in the first day. Then we instruct: we show where what lies (things, toys, ware, the home first-aid kit). We tell what daily routine at the kid where he eats, sleeps what it plays with and in what walks. we show On own example how we with it spend day .

we Give to

accurate security guidelines (previously make for yourself the list that to forget nothing). We tell about habits and features of the child. We tell about children`s drugs (but we stipulate that it is possible to give them only with the consent of parents).

we Hang up in a visible place the list of phones:

  • of parents, grandmothers, grandfathers, close relatives, neighbors;
  • of the policlinic / nursery of ambulance / service of rescue;
  • of the personal pediatrician (if is);
  • of the nearest police station (or 02);
  • of local emergency service (the Ministry of Emergency Situations - 01).
we Observe

how the nurse interacts with the kid what plays as communicates. If something does not arrange, is discussed it with the nurse , we ask whether it can change the behavior (cannot - good-bye). If everything is good - we suggest to sign the contract.

the Contract with the nurse

Is signed by

surely: in a simple written form (notarial assurance is not required). In it we state the main requirements to the nurse, its and our duties, we fix a daily routine which the nurse has to observe, duration of the working day, the compensation size, a payment for overtime, work during week-end / holidays, urgent calls, other household moments (food of the nurse, delay - its and).

If to obey the letter of the law, such contract has to be registered in local governments, and the employer and the nurse have to pay taxes (and the employer - also insurance premiums). But even if you will not register the contract anywhere, the fact of its signing will take both side in a tone.

should not be done to

of What?

  1. to Employ the nurse which better than mother knows that it is necessary for the child and as to treat it.
  2. to Reduce a distance, doing the nurse by the family member (to pass on “you“).
  3. to Communicate with the nurse scornfully, haughtily. Ideal option - valid, partnership at accurate performance of all mother`s instructions by the nurse. It is necessary to communicate with the nurse warmly, but at distance.
  4. to Discuss the family and personal problems with the nurse.
  5. to Endure
  6. that the child loves the nurse more it is stronger attached to it.
  7. to Suffer from sense of guilt that the child not with mother (sense of guilt generates the wrong educational strategy).

what to pay attention to?

to Leave to

the treasure with foreign person is always risk. How to understand, whether well to the child with the nurse?

Distress signals: any disturbing changes in behavior of the child (the increased tearfulness, aggression, obstinacy and disobedience, slackness, apathy and other).

What to do? we Play games on nurses. We ask neighbors to observe (to listen through a wall) as communicate the nurse and the kid. It is possible to leave the included and hidden dictophone or to establish video surveillance.
