Caring for a patient after surgery
After surgery or hospitalization it is critical for your patients to
follow your instructions to prevent serious potential complications
that can result in readmission and/or delayed recovery.
Top Reasons for Complication/Hospital Readmissions
- Non-compliance with discharge care instructions due to the patient’s lack of understanding regarding their condition is of concern.
- Friends and family are often too anxious, tired or are simply too overwhelmed to provide support. In some cases the patient simply lacks a support network of friends and/or family that can assist.
- The Coordination of follow up care and transportation to appointments with their healthcare providers does not happen.
- Medication errors are made because the patients regimen is modified without collaboration from entire health care team.
