Our registered nurses participate in patient focused care, providing preoperative teaching and comprehensive assessment through our preoperative assessment program. Our patient/family centered care continues on the day of surgery in our admissions unit, operating rooms, and recovery unit. Follow up phone calls are made to patients after surgery.
We provide comprehensive care for patients by using appropriate resources to adequately control pain and discomfort and to help our patients achieve their highest level of function and optimal quality of life.
