Post Hospitalization care at Home
Patient care doesn’t end when the patient is discharged from the hospital. Even the best-case scenario patients need skilled medical services for a period ranging from a few days to a few weeks after a hospital stay. This is even more critical for those who have undergone major surgeries or have experienced critical illness.
The need for skilled home health care is paramount for those patients who have undergone Neuro surgeries, Hip and Knee Replacements, spine surgeries, transplants, tumor removals and many other kind of surgeries. Specialized after-discharge care is required for such patients and it is important to follow an evidence-based regime to avoid unnecessary complications and to ensure speedy recovery.
Our post hospitalization services are intended to enable the patient to recuperate completely – physically and mentally and continue their typical everyday practice, at the same time offering mental help and solidarity to the patient and the family.
Our home care plans have been developed based on international practices in line with guidelines by leading surgeons, who also continuously review them. Our caregivers are trained and equipped with the best of resources to be able to execute these plans and assist the patient in a holistic manner.
Our Post Hospitalization Home Health Care ordinarily includes a blend of the following:
- Full time / part time nursing care (checking wounds, wound management, suture removal, tracheotomy, oxygen administration, injections, reviewing medications and others)
- Physiotherapy / rehabilitation
- Occupational therapy
- Speech therapy including help with swallowing
- Patient education and confidence building
Fundamental to the post-hospitalization care is custodial care that incorporates helping the patient with self-grooming and personal errands, for example, toileting, washing, dressing, etc. At whatever point required by a patient, we can orchestrate a visit by a social worker or psychologist who will converse with the patient and spend time with them.
