After Surgery Care for Eldery Patients
The success of any surgical procedure depends heavily on the skill of the surgeon as well as the quality of the recovery time. In recent years, many surgical operations have become outpatient procedures in which the patient is allowed to return home the same day as the surgery. However, this approach is not suitable for every patient. According to a U.S. study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, elderly patients (age 65 and older) are at least 54 percent more likely to be readmitted to the hospital after a surgery than younger patients.
Depending on the procedure, patients that undergo outpatient (ambulatory) procedures such as plastic surgery, foot surgery, or orthopedic surgery are required to take care of the incisions, clean their wounds, change bandages, and take the appropriate dosage of medication at the correct times. While carrying out discharge instructions is often difficult for patients of all ages, it is much more common for elderly patients to misunderstand how they should care for themselves – resulting in painful, even life-threatening errors.
Receive Compassionate Nursing Care 24/7
At the Pearl Recovery Retreat, patients of all ages receive expert medical care and supervision during their stay to ensure that their discharge instructions are followed closely and consistently. With professional care in a quiet, peaceful environment, patients can simply focus on healing. Our private duty nursing staff can provide the following services:
- Change dressings
- Monitor health and catch any complications
- Administer pain management
- Provide assistance with the restroom and showering
- Serve meals, beverages, and snacks
- Ensure correct medication and dosage is taken at correct times
Most patients rely on their family and friends to provide the care they need following a surgical procedure, despite the sensitive nature of what it takes to recover. A professional nurse can make the process safe and seamless, without confusion or complication.
