Post-Surgical Care


Hospitals are discharging patients earlier and sicker than ever before. Forced to cut costs and meet quotas, hospitals are sending people home before they are fully recovered. The benefit to recovering in the comfort of your own home is only effective if you have the proper care you need.

Nursing Referral Service of Northern Virginia can connect you to a highly skilled LPN or RN who is perfectly suited to helping speed up recovery time and mend injuries and surgical wounds. Your private nurse will customize your care to include as much or as little attention as you need.

Depending on your specific needs, post-surgical care can include the following services:

  • Checking and changing bandages

  • Cleaning dressings

  • Monitoring vital signs

  • Assessing general health condition

  • Administering medication

  • Assistance getting around your home

  • Personal care

  • Bathing

  • Meal preparation

  • Transportation to doctor’s appointments

  • Errands

  • Companionship
