Have A Loved One With An Upcoming Surgery And Worried For Post-Op Care? Find A Rehabilitation Hospital Today

by Clifford Ramos

If you have a loved one that is about to undergo surgery and you worry that they won't have adequate care at home afterward, and you know they will need a lot of rehabilitation, find a hospital that can care for them. There are special hospitals designated for patients with these needs, and this can be ideal for post-op care. 

This hospital will have a lot of benefits for your loved one, while they are getting around-the-clock care. Here are some of the things they can get at the hospital that maybe they wouldn't get if they were at home.

Medication Monitoring

Regulating different medications after surgery can be difficult. This can be anything from antibiotics to painkillers. The patient can have allergic reactions, sensitivity to specific medications, or have issues while trying to regulate the medications, or with the doses. With staff on the clock 24 hours a day it's easy to get the changes needed to make recovery easier.

Prevention of Emergency Needs

There are things that can happen after surgery that need emergency attention after the patient has left the hospital, like:

  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Blood clots
  • Infection/sepsis
  • Urinary retention
  • Wound dehiscence
  • Fever

These are just a few of the concerns that people can experience but can be detected early by health professionals at a hospital for special surgery rehabilitation.

Therapy and Rehabilitation

Getting a surgical patient in and out of the house carefully can be difficult, along with finding the time. At a surgical rehabilitation center, the patient will get therapy and rehabilitation there. They can easily be transported from within the facility, making therapy and rehabilitation easier. There is also medical staff on hand if something goes awry during the rehabilitation process.

There are a lot of things that need to be monitored after someone has surgery, especially if they need to have rehabilitation right away. Studies show that the sooner the patient is doing therapy, the faster they will recover. This means the more attention and therapy they have, the sooner they will be able to go back to normal life on their own.

Talk with your loved one's insurance provider to see what will be covered after the surgery, and what they will have to pay out of pocket to find a facility that is within the budget. This can make the recovery easier for the patient, and make things easier for the family.

About Me

Powerful Physical Therapy

I was badly injured a year ago, and it took a long time to get back to my normal level of ability. One of the things that helped more than anything was the time that I spent in physical therapy. I didn’t always love going to physical therapy – in fact, sometimes, I really didn’t enjoy it at all. But ultimately, the therapists and other patients I worked with helped inspire me to get better, and the exercises facilitated my healing process. I started this blog to talk about all of the things I learned about physical therapy and healing during my recovery time. I hope my blog reaches other accident victims. I want to offer encouragement, hope, and information for people who are in the same boat that I was in.
