WHY CHOOSE US?
Post-Op Nursing offers quality in-home post-operative care for individuals immediately after any elective procedure.
Have an elective surgery coming up and nervous about what happens after you exit the recovery room? Wondering how you'll take care of your daily tasks while ensuring you're taking your medications properly and tending to your bandages and/or drains? Worried what you'll do should something go wrong? Hire one of our certified nurses to take care of every single logistic needed for the ultimate post-op recovery experience. Leave the sterile atmosphere of the hospital behind to enjoy the familiarity and comfort of your own home without sacrificing the reassurance of having a medical professional by your bedside.
Having a trained watchful eye for the first 24 hours post-surgery allows you to relax and focus only on resting and recovering.
We keep track of your vital signs and temperature. This information is then available for your follow-up visits with your doctor.
A high protein diet and plenty of fluids helps expedite the healing process. We work with you to plan your diet and restrictions post-op.
Our certified RN's will empty and record drainage and patency, as well as ghange and reinforce bandages when needed.
We alleviate this burden by cross-checking your current medications with prescribed pain management and antibiotics. Your RN will set out your dosing schedule.
Our professional RN's provide oversight of all physician appointments. We will contact your doctor for any health concerns or need for additional medication.
MEET THE OWNER
JUNE THORPE, RN
une Thorpe, RN, is a graduate of the University of South Carolina, where she obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing and currently cares for patients in their homes. She previously worked for over twenty-five years at Roper Hospital in Charleston, SC, where she worked in Emergency Room (ER), Intensive Care Unit (ICU), post ICU, and post-op in cardiac care. June is a volunteer at Our Lady of Mercy’s Neighborhood House working with less fortunate people in our community. She is an active volunteer and member of the Isle of Palms Exchange Club and The Veterans of Foreign wars (VFW). She is a member of St. Andrews Church in Mount Pleasant and has done medical missionary work in Burundi in Africa.
Post-op Nursing came about in 2018 when June realized there was a need for personalized care for patients immediately after any elective procedure. In the beginning, we focused on mainly cosmetic surgery patients and realized that this can carry on to bariatric, orthopedic and a host of other procedures that require any form of anesthesia. We care for you or your loved one in the privacy of your home and spend the first night with them to make sure they understand their post -op care. We help with teaching patients and loved ones on how to care for drains and how to optimize medications to prevent or minimize pain and discomfort.
At Post-Op Nursing, we care about our patients and are here to make life easier for you. Basically, from the recovery area we meet with you and your doctor to go over discharge instructions and then we bring or meet you at home and care for you through the rest of that first day until morning. We return once in the afternoon on day 2 and afterwards as warranted.
Our certified practitioners work tirelessly at improving the quality of life for each and every one of our patients and their families.
