Post-Surgical / Rehabilitation Nursing
Home nursing helps to prevent post-operative complications and infections. It can often mean an earlier discharge from hospital and reduce the likelihood of re-admission.
In addition to improved health outcomes and recovery rates, being cared for by a live-in nurse in the comfort of your own home enables you to enjoy the familiarity of your house, pets, local friends and family. In a home care environment, clients also benefit from a bespoke care plan, giving them the freedom to make choices about their daily routine and lifestyle.
Our nurses co-ordinate with other healthcare professionals involved in your care to put together just the right package of nursing support. We also take the time to carefully match our nurses’ specific skill sets to your requirements. Clients therefore benefit from highly qualified clinicians with relevant experience. In addition, all Consultus nurses have undergone the strictest selection procedure and hold the required qualifications, verified by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
Our nurses will assist with rehabilitation including;
- physiotherapy exercises – to strengthen muscles, relieve pain and promote mobility
- wound care – cleaning, treating and dressing wounds to promote healing and prevent infection
- stoma care – assessing, treating and dressing wounds to promote healing and prevent infection
- administration of medication – ensuring that medication is taken as required to promote recovery and manage any pain.
Furthermore, our private nurses can provide support with household chores and cooking, enabling clients to rest and recover at their own pace, and providing reassurance to friends and family that they are being fully cared for. Live-in nurses also ensure that professional care is provided 24/7, again giving clients and their loved ones reassurance that help is there for them whenever needed. An additional layer of support is provided by our Nurse Co-ordinators who oversee all placements and are an experienced point of contact for both clients and their nurses.
Benefit from the improved recovery rates, flexibility and independence, that a live-in nurse and bespoke care plan from Consultus provides. View our live-in nursing costs for further information.
