Never experienced such high quality care before


My wife had a stroke at the age of 49. After Surgery, we were referred to HCAH Transition Care Center. My wife was practically bedridden with multiple tubes running through her. But her recovery at HCAH began on day one. Their multidisciplinary staff...
is very experienced, well trained, and well mannered. They made us feel that we were a family and addressed all our anxieties. I have never experienced such high quality care before. My wife has now recovered, free of all the tubes, and can do her daily activities by herself. Thank you HCAH!

Very responsive to all our needs and requirements


We had a caregiver from HCAH for my 85-year-old Dad to help him recover from back surgery. He was very alert, optimistic, experienced, and he kept building my old dad's hope to recover. He was very interactive and provided me regular updates with Dad...
's videos and pictures. He ensured that dad had weekly sessions with the doctor on video call. His dedication and care made my dad free of all catheters, feeding tubes by the end of 2 months. I feel that he was the best friend my dad needed at that stage.

Post Operative Nursing Care

Recovering from a surgery is a critical phase that requires diligent care, close monitoring, and professional support. At HCAH, we understand this necessity and provide comprehensive post operative nursing care to ensure a smooth and swift recovery for our patients.

What is Postoperative Care

Postoperative care is the care a patient receives following a surgical procedure. It encompasses a broad range of services, from pain management and wound care to physical therapy and emotional support. The ultimate goal of postoperative care is to prevent complications and to promote the fastest and most effective recovery possible.

Why Nursing Service Required for Postoperative Care?

Quality nursing service is vital for pre and post operative care. Nurses play a crucial role in managing pain, monitoring vital signs, preventing complications, and providing immediate post operative care. They also educate patients and their families about the recovery process, helping them understand what to expect during the post operative management.

Postoperative Care Given In The Hospital

In the hospital, postoperative nursing care begins immediately after surgery. Nurses oversee the immediate post operative care, which includes monitoring the patient’s vital signs, managing pain, and ensuring the surgical site is healing properly. This care is guided by a detailed post operative nursing care plan, which is tailored to meet each patient’s unique needs and health status.

Postoperative Care at Home

The need for professional care doesn't end once a patient leaves the hospital. Postoperative nursing care at home is equally important. At HCAH, we provide skilled nurses for home-based postoperative care. They help manage medication, assist with mobility, provide wound care, and offer emotional support to patients.

How Do You Plan & Prepare For Postoperative Care?

Planning for postoperative care begins before the surgery itself. This includes understanding the expected recovery timeline, arranging for assistance at home, and setting up a comfortable recovery space. The post operative nursing management team at HCAH can guide patients and their families through this process, helping to ensure a smooth transition from hospital to home.
