Tinder’s Most Right Swiped Jobs: Nurses, PTs and SLPs make the list!

At this point, we all have a pretty good idea of what Tinder is. It’s the app that allows you to swipe left or right on a person’s picture. Left means you don’t like them. Right means you do like them. It’s a pretty simple concept.

But now, Tinder has released data on which jobs were the most right-swiped. This comes after the company introduced the ability to add your job to your profile only three months ago. As it turns out,listing your education and your career will make you more “swipeable” on the dating app.

So who made the top of the list? Well, when it comes to healthcare, women who are either a Physical Therapist, Speech Language Pathologist or Nurse are commonly being swiped to the right!

As for men, the top male jobs stay away from healthcare and instead include careers like pilot, firefighter and lawyer. However, doctor and paramedic did end of making the list.

So what does this list mean? In the end, it is just one company’s data, but it is nice to see career choices from doctors, SLPs, Nurses and PTs getting some love. If you’re not finding much luck on Tinder, perhaps it’s time to switch career fields?

Prehab: Strengthen Your Body Before Surgery

If you’ve ever had to undergo any type of extensive surgery, you know that the recovery process can be long and sometimes painful. But unfortunately, it’s a necessary step in any recovery. But there is a way to ease the pain and make the process of recovery a lot easier if you simply plan ahead.

It’s called prehab; and it’s becoming a growing solution for any person who has to face surgery or any athlete or active individual who simply wants to prevent injury.

Prehab: Strengthen Your Body Before Surgery

What Is Prehab?

Prehab can be slotted into two different categories. The first is prehabilitation and the second is used to prevent injuries in activities or sports.

Let’s start with the prehabilitation portion.

Research points to evidence that prehab helps improve a patient’s recovery speed post surgery, and in the end, helps the patient to save money by avoiding large physical therapy bills.

Through prehab, healthcare professionals help a patient by educating them and laying out an exercise program that’s designed to increase a patient’s strength, endurance and overall recovery speed before any major surgery.

Since exercise naturally increases someone’s strength, endurance and flexibility, it’s only natural that exercising before surgery, or prehab will decrease your time in rehab or the hospital and increase your quality of life following surgery. Prehab isn’t limited to one specific surgery either.

Prehab can help when dealing with surgeries like:

Cancer treatment

Rotator cuff repair

ACL repair

Hip and Knee replacement

Joint replacement

Cardiac Surgery

Orthopedic Surgery

 

 

These are just a few procedures that a patient can prepare for through prehab.

Prehab For Prevention

There are several companies that already help active individuals to get in touch with prehab specialists to begin conditioning.

Prehab.com say, “Prehab is a proven, common sense technique to thoughtfully prevent injuries before they happen. Preventing injuries decrease healthcare costs, and can improve the quality of life for many Americans.”

Prehab is the most effectively way of addressing preventable injury in sports. It links experienced professionals with effective prevention information and educated athletes. Request that your healthcare provider is a certified prehab specialist.

The Structure Of A Prehab For Program

The typical length of a prehab program lasts anywhere between 4 and 12 weeks. Between that length of time, the typical human body will gain enough strength and endurance to allow for better recovery after surgery. Most people can get by with a program lasting between 6 and 8 weeks with an exercise routine between 3 and 5 days.  Of course, a physical therapist would work with you to craft a program for your specific body and target parts that will be affected by surgery.

Like any exercise program, the intensity would be scaled to your current physical condition or limitations.

Unfortunately, prehab is not covered by insurance as of right now. But the argument could be made that the faster recovery process is invaluable!

The intensity of the program will depend on your current physical condition and any limitations you may have related to your medical diagnosis that is requiring you to undergo surgery.

Keeping Nurses Happy And Battling Turnover

A happy nurse is an efficient nurse. Really, that statement can be said for any profession out there. But nurses, perhaps more than any other industry, have to deal with one of those most dynamic and stressful environments. Those types of environments can sometimes lead to “nurse burnout”. But there’s a way to avoid nurse turnover and keep them happy! It’s all about improving quality of life on the job.

Staying Focused

Research shows that if a nurse can stay focused on their work and not staffing concerns, then patient overall care increases. It’s plain and simple, adding a Registered Nurse’s hours to patient care drastically improves the outlook for that patient.  The average RN turnover rate is 15% and that rate is set to increase over 2016 at 42%. In addition, a shortage of RNs is expected to reach at least 20% over the next 10 years! This is due to the fact that many Baby Boomers are retiring, while others are simply just leaving the industry.

When it comes to work life balance, a higher percentage of RNs say that a higher workload is the biggest reason that prevents them from having a satisfying work/life balance. When a nurse has to juggle several patients, it becomes difficult for them to provide outstanding care.

 

Satisfaction Guaranteed

When nurses are allowed to have the time to build meaningful nurse-patient relationships and provide genuine care for people, then their satisfaction is proven to increase, resulting in many nurses staying on board for the long term.  Morale is important in any occupation, but when it comes to patient care, it’s perhaps now more integral than ever. The last thing a nurse wants to deal with when heading into their shift is the unknown. Staffing issues can lead to several problems if a facility is not staffed correctly. However, if staffing is a problem, new scheduling software and or schedules will not necessarily solve the problem. The problem can almost always be traced back to patient flow. Providing and securing an effective means of bring new patients into a hospital, facility or clinic has a trickle down effect and will almost always lead to a better quality of life on the job for nurses and eventually solve staffing issues.

 

The Changing Landscape

One thing we know about nurses for sure, is that you can never have too many of them. That’s why entering the nursing field can be such a promising career. A new study reinforces this fact, citing that hospitals with more nurses have significantly lower mortality rates than hospitals where nurses are spread too thin.

The British Medical Journal says the same also  goes for doctors. More doctors to cover more patients found that there would also be a low chance of death. The study examined 137 acute care “trusts,” which are organizations that oversee hospitals in the U.K. Specifically, facilities with ratios of one nurse per six patients or lower had 20 percent lower patient mortality rates than those with 10 or more nurses per patient.

In contrast, the study found that higher numbers of other health care support workers, who have less training than nurses, was associated with higher mortality rates. That, said the researchers, was evidence that hospitals seeking to cut costs by hiring less experienced substitutes for nurses are doing a disservice to patients.
