After a procedure, many physicians require their post op patient have a caregiver available to assist them at home.
Physicians require after surgery home care to help ensure the safety of their patients and be sure they receive the level of post-operative care they require.
Once discharged from the hospital or a surgical facility, the risk for falls and mismanaged medication can significantly increase. Often post-operative patients are unaware of how much support they will need. Due to anesthesia, pain, or other factors, a post-operative patient may not be able to independently care for themselves at home. Therefore, patients and their families should begin their post-operative planning well in advance.
