Why should I hire a personal Postoperative Care Nurse to make my surgery experience safer and more comfortable?
Surgeries are strenuous on the human body. Without proper support during the healing process, the road to recovery can be rocky. Not only does one out of every three patients suffer from sudden nausea and vomiting; a figure that rises to two out of three among at-risk patients; final surgical outcomes also suffer without the right aftercare. Patients are at greater risk of developing hematomas and seromas without proper support, putting the success of procedures at risk. Inadequate wound care can also result in a greater buildup of scar tissue and risk for infection.
Where others fall short:
Comfort care is not enough. Medically untrained personnel cannot meet the needs of postoperative patients because they are not capable of tending to your physical and mental well-being, or guarding you from unexpected complications. Friends and family members also cannot offer the privacy that many patients desire.
As an alternative, staying in a hospital is stressful and costly. Patients do not heal well in shared rooms, loud environments, or without feeling comfortable and at home. Post-surgical hospital stays further delay your ability to return home and get back on your feet in a comfortable environment.
