Post Surgical Care
Proper treatment during recovery after surgery is essential for making a complete recovery. In many cases, post-surgical care leads into a variety of recovery issues as well as rehabilitative concerns which must be addressed during the recovery period.
Properly dressing wounds after surgery or after a critical accident is an essential service provided by a skilled nurse. Since different kinds of wounds have different forms of treatment and different complications associated with them, a skilled nurse is often assigned to handle wound management.
Whether medications are given orally, injected, or delivered by some other means, skilled nurses are often called upon to not only perform the task of monitoring and administering proper dosages but also provide instruction and supervision to the patient and/or caregivers in the administration of prescribed and over-the-counter medications.
Though a part of medication management, a skilled nurse is required for handling medications which are delivered through intravenous delivery systems and means.
This is another area where skilled nursing is essential to proper patient recovery or ongoing treatment. Because of its technical nature and the dangers associated with it, ostomy care requires a skilled nurse to make certain it is carried out properly. If the care is to be long-term, then caregivers are often trained and supervised by a skilled nurse in order to assure that continued care will be carried out properly.
Related to ostomy care, proper use of a catheter requires the special training of a skilled nurse. Besides providing this care early on in the recovery process, skilled nurses train and supervise patients and caregivers in the proper use of catheters as well.
Skilled nurses are often called upon to perform certain short-term rehabilitation tasks as well. Though these duties are often passed on to rehabilitative professionals, they are initially carried out or supervised as a part of skilled nursing services.
