Home Health Care

Home Healthcare will involve a registered nurse coming out to your home the following day after you are discharged from the hospital. The registered nurse will work to evaluate your wound, asses your vitals, teach your medication, and remove the staples when needed. You will see the nurse for approximately three to four visits before being discharged. The home health physical therapy will start the following day you are discharged from the hospital. A physical therapist will work to instruct proper technique, reducing swelling, regaining your range of motion, and restoring your normal gate by use of assistive equipment, like the front wheeled walker, or cane. They will also answer any and all questions with regards to home physical therapy.
