Pulmonary Recovery Program

Breathe easier with the assistance from our team of pulmonary experts. Our clinical team will implement a comprehensive care plan for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD) patients with the goal of reducing hospital readmissions and emergency room visits. Our pulmonary program started as a study with a local hospital using our proprietary protocols and now we are accepting all patients with a COPD diagnosis to the program.

Our COPD program includes:

Nursing To develop an individualized plan of care for each patient, teach medication management and compliance, teach breathing techniques and train on how to use respiratory equipment, diet and disease education
Therapy/Rehab Services Therapists can help to teach energy conservation and safe ambulation and activities of daily living techniques
Social Work Social workers can provide smoking cessation and chronic disease management support, resources in the community such as support groups, diet and exercise classes and managing anxiety and depression
Telehealth An added layer of support for patients who are anxious about their disease and feel short of breath can measure their oxygen and avoid trips to the hospital – our telehealth system includes pulse oximeter, blood pressure cuff, weight scale and emergency response system
