The level of nursing in Switzerland is among the highest in Europe and worldwide. In a European comparative study, 58 percent of Swiss patients were satisfied with the nursing care, more than any other surveyed country. The average in Europe is only 48 percent.

New insights help to improve and develop care. The nurses are trained well and study further regularly. The overall supply of Swiss care includes:

  • Assistance with activities of daily living, support in crisis situations

  • Participation in preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic measures

  • Participation in actions to prevent diseases and accidents as well as preserving and promoting health on the other hand
  • Participation in improving the quality and effectiveness of care and the development of the profession

  • Participation in research projects on health care

Thereby patients are considered as a whole with their physical, mental and social parts. The well-being of patients is the focus of care measures.
