Post Surgery Nursing
Recover from surgery in the comfort of your own home with a professional and experiended Consultus Nurse
Whatever level of Nursing care you might need following surgery, our Nurses are able to help.
Consultus Nurses will work closely with your GP, District Nurse, Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist and any healthcare professional involved in your on-going care to ensure the best possible package of nursing support.
Post Surgery Nurses can assist with:
- Wound care
- Stoma care
- Personal care
- Promoting continence
- Physiotherapy exercises
- Procuring specialist equipment
- Prevention of post-operative complications
- Promoting independence
- Reassurance and encouragement
Post-surgery bookings may range from 4 days to 4 weeks and may be funded privately or by private health insurance (please check with your insurance company; see funding options).
Consultus may be able to help facilitate an earlier release from hospital or convalescent home. In this instance our Nurse will usually meet with you prior to your discharge home and receive a full handover from the nursing team that has been caring for you. You can then travel home together, if appropriate.
Following a successful period of post-surgery recovery with our Nurse, Consultus is always on hand to discuss alternative future care arrangements. The Nurse, if required, will then assist during the transition period following a changeover of care.
