Cruise Ship Doctors and Nurses

A cruise ship is like a massive hotel or mini town on water with spas, restaurants, activity centers, gyms, shops, rooms, and even theatres. These places all provide a certain amount of potential health risks which warrants the need of a cruise ship doctor and cruise ship nurse to be hired. Guests can have accidents while doing some of the sports and activities on board. Some might have a seasickness problem or take ill if they are not used to the food at the restaurants. They could also simply catch a cold. The crew is also at a risk of injuries and illnesses while working, specially the deck and engine room crew, but the chefs and kitchen staff have hot substances and sharp knives in the galley, entertainers have hazards with lighting, props and dancing injuries etc, and there are a number of other places on a cruise ship that could lead to injury and will require the services of a physician. Children will need more care sometimes and most cruise liner companies have a cruise ship nurse to handle cuts and scrapes, or smaller medical occurrences. Traveling physician jobs are the perfect change of pace for a young doctor who has just completed his or her internship program, or it may provide a mature and highly experienced doctor with the opportunity to travel after having worked in the hospital arena for many years.
