Our skilled nurses provide post-operative patients with specific information about drinking/eating, caring for drainage tubes, skin and wound care, ambulation, self-care, and signs and symptoms that require medical attention. Nursing care includes help with diet and exercise follow-up.
During these periods, our nurses serve as a source of information and a monitor of patient progress. Follow-up calls and visits to patients and families after surgery are essential in determining the welfare of the patient, offering suggestions for managing the patient’s care, and learning if any complications are developing. At the same time, Signature’s nurses can assess the psychological condition of the patient and his or her adjustment to a new way of living and suggest any needed resources.
