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|
