ADDING VALUE TO YOUR PRACTICE:
Many surgeons find themselves without a dedicated practice nurse which can leave you and the patient feeling vulnerable. Post op patients often feel they don't want to disturb their surgeon with various queries, questions and feelings of anxiety. Their blood pressure increases and their recovery slows as adrenaline and cortisol rise.
I can hold your patient's hand throughout their care pathway. I will remain in close contact with you, but I can provide the time and soft reassurance unique to nurses that your patient needs.
This has numerous benefits that we can discuss further, but primarily:
It gives you peace of mind that sensible advice and reassurance is being given by an experienced and professional nurse. In the event of a clinical issue I always ensure the patient contacts you.
It gives your patient a point of call for the times when you may be operating and they need the reassurance of someone who understands their worries.
