Post Surgical Care

Please allow our specially trained in-home care team to assist you as you recover from your recent surgical procedure. Following a comprehensive assessment completed by an RN Care Manager, you will be assigned specially trained caregivers who are supervised and supported by the experienced  RN Care Manager who will also provide nursing care as needed in accordance with your post operative care plan.

Key aspects of care:

  • Safety
  • Comfort
  • Healing
  • Independence

Care provided is focused on your individual needs with attention to maintaining safety and comfort; and promoting healing and independence. We will monitor the healing process, assessing for symptoms of discomfort, infection, digestive or elimination problems. Wound care and dressing changes are performed or delegated to our trained caregivers by our RN Care Manager. An invasive surgical procedure is traumatic to the body. If chronic illnesses exist prior to surgery, the impact is greater. Coupled with advanced age; these factors can make post-operative recovery a challenge requiring ongoing assessment and intervention.     

Contributing factors in addition to the physical trauma include: disrupted daily routines, loss of function due to limited physical movement immediately following procedure, increased risk of infection, exacerbation of existing chronic conditions, post-operative cognitive changes. Digestive, urinary and elimination functions may be slowed or altered due to medication, the surgical procedure or decreased physical activity immediately post op.

Specialized care provided for people who have undergone surgery includes:

  • Vital sign and wound site monitoring if indicated.

  • Wound care as necessary by nurse or delegated to caregiver when appropriate.

  • Monitoring comfort with medication prompt, assistance or delegated administration if necessary.

  • Supervised, planned activity to increase strength, endurance and return activities to pre-operative levels while maintaining physical safety.

  • Preparation and serving nutritious meals; offering fluids frequently to promote healing.

  • Observe for nausea or vomiting.

  • Monitoring of bladder and bowel function during post op period.

  • Frequent inspection of skin during bedbound phase.

  • Caregiver will immediately report to RN; unrelieved discomfort, vomiting, fever or other sign of infection, abnormal vital signs or change in mental status

  • Accompaniment to follow-up appointments.
