If you or your loved one is going through the process of Joint Replacement surgery, we understand how difficult it can be to provide the proper care and support needed to heal properly, help them regain their mobility, regain as much independence as possible and reach their maximum potential.
The demand for Joint Replacement is steadily increasing and patients are seen at home much earlier in their recovery.
Our Skilled Nurses, and Physical and Occupational Therapists are ready to give your family the assistance needed to help you or your loved one recover comfortably and safely in their own home – with minimum recovery time and maximum healing.
Our team at Nursing Plus of Broward understands the challenges that patients of joint replacement surgery face. Our Registered and Licensed Nurses, Physical and Occupational Therapists, as well as Home Health Aides are trained to take care of you or your loved one and help them heal after their joint replacement surgery, working directly with their physician to ensure proper treatment solutions and maximum recovery.
Specific types of joint replacement:
Because Joint Replacement surgery involves replacing a joint that has been damaged or otherwise has impaired function, it’s a serious surgery that comes with a relatively lengthy recovery period. It can take up to six weeks before patients are able to move comfortably without support. Additionally, it can take as many as six months to one year before the surgery site has completely healed and patients are able to receive the full benefit of their replaced knee, hip, or other joints.
Our nurses and therapists understand the challenges that patients with Joint Replacements face. We’re familiar with the safety concerns and Mobility Issues that result from the procedure and are ready to help ensure that you or your loved one receives plenty of one-on-one attention to help stay on top of any complications that might arise.
Some common issues patients face after surgery include:
As the surgical site heals, different challenges can arise. It’s important to have Skilled Nurses and Physical/Occupational Therapists on your side who can provide the care needed for proper recovery and who can adapt their care to your needs or your loved one’s needs as they evolve during the recovery process.
At Nursing Plus of Broward, we can work with you to:
Ensuring your loved one’s home is prepared for their return ahead of time is of the utmost importance. With their mobility being limited, what may have been a small step previously can now become a hurdle. It’s important to take a critical look at the navigability and function of certain areas of the house, such as:
Another important step in post-Joint Replacement surgery is proper incision/wound maintenance as well as a proper Physical/Occupational Therapy plan to increase mobility. Proper incision/Wound Care maintenance will help prevent any infections as well as any further complications. Having a Skilled Nurse assisting in you or your loved one’s care will ensure proper incision/wound maintenance and healing.
Working with the physician, our therapists will work through the treatment plan to help your loved improve their mobility and gain back as much independence as much possible. With a proper treatment plan in place, along with supportive therapists, you or your loved one can get through the recovery process while continuing to live in the comfort and safety of their own home.
