Not only do we urge you to come home to recover, KCRN will coordinate your care before and after any medical illness or surgical procedure. Prior to your procedure we are available for patient advocacy and collaboration with your family and medical team on your behalf. Keys Concierge RN has an excellent working relationship with medical providers and medical facilities in the Florida Keys. Our knowledge of the inner workings of medical offices, hospitals, pharmacies and durable medical suppliers puts us in the Captain's Chair when obtaining refills, clarifying discharge instructions and championing your pain relief requests. Are the correct medications being prescribed after surgery? Do you take supplements and can they be continued? Are the uses and benefits of your medications being thoroughly explained? Are your walker, bedside commode, traction equipment, pressure mattress, nebulizer, hospital bed delivered and ready for your return home? All of these questions and more can be quickly addressed by your KCRN nurse.
Our environmental assessment allows for the best transition home. We will conduct an assessment of your home to evaluate your needs after hospitalization. Are you having orthopedic surgery and live in a multilevel home? Do you need a rolling walker or a stationary walker? Bending, lifting and walking may be limited. A proactive approach and solutions are essential to your recovery. KCRN has a keen eye for restoring the functionality of your living space and the solutions to create an ideal environment for healing.
We will make the home safe and recovery ready. We will obtain medications, explain dietary requirements or restrictions and preparations prior to your procedure to ease. We will provide transportation to and from the procedural location and remain with you until you are comfortable and all of your needs have been attended to both prior to and after your surgery is successfully completed. Services are available so that you have the privacy, peace of mind and the advocacy of your own Keys Concierge RN. The best recovery starts with the best care possible.
