Coordinated, Compassionate Surgical Care
After fear of back surgery, ‘I got my life back’
In a single motion, Catherine Behanna’s life changed.
After you tell us you’ve decided to undergo surgery, we’ll perform your procedure as soon as possible so you can find relief from your condition. You’ll meet your nurse and anesthesiologist during a pre-admission interview and receive information to help you prepare for your operation.
Following your procedure, you’ll talk with your nurse and surgeon to ask questions and find out how you can contribute to a successful recovery. Each day you stay with us, you’ll see the same physician – called a hospitalist – who knows the details of your health and understands how to give you the best possible care. Your case manager, hospitalist, pharmacist and other medical professionals will gather regularly to discuss and plan your treatment.
When you return home, we’ll call to ask if you need assistance in following your discharge instructions. Ask about getting help to schedule doctor appointments, find transportation and obtain medications.
Putting Your Safety First
Before, during and after surgery, your health care providers follow a thorough safety checklist to improve the outcome of your treatment. You’ll learn how you can help us prevent infection, so you stay as healthy as possible.
