What is the meaning of 付きっきり?

I usually see it used in the sense of "babysitting" is this the only meaning?

Jisho defines it as "constant attendance; uninterrupted supervision; staying with someone all the time", while Weblio:

少しも離れることなく付き添うこと。つきっきり

which I would translate as "To attend to someone without ever leaving", so it means to attend on someone costantly; "babysitting" fits in this, but given Weblio's example (付きっきりで看病する, "To nurse someone costantly") I'd say it has a broader meaning.

つきっきり means "to be together all the time", "to stick with someone".
