Complex Clinical Program
The nursing team in our complex clinical program is specially trained to deliver care to patients with multiple health or complex clinical conditions. Our complex services range from, but are not limited to, the treatment of respiratory, cardiac, neurological, renal and diabetic conditions to wound management, along with specialized care for stroke, Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. Our team develops individual-centered care plans to address each patient’s specific health concerns.
Wound Care Program
The nursing team is specially trained in the treatment of hard-to-heal wounds, such as pressure ulcers or bedsores, diabetic ulcers, surgical wounds, venous statis or arterial ulcers resulting from poor circulation. This program provides regular monitoring and appropriate care for wounds, including topical treatments, dressing changes and prescribed oral medications, such as antibiotics and pain relievers. Also included is dietary assessment and medical nutrition therapy by a registered dietitian.
This program works on improving both physical ability (such as joint range of motion and general mobility) and mental function (such as memory improvement, comprehension and problem-solving skills). Whether through group or individual sessions, the patient is encouraged to achieve and maintain their desired highest, individual level of functioning.
Skilled care services have evolved over time to expand beyond traditional nursing home care. Riverside Health & Rehabilitation can help you choose the appropriate level of care for your loved one. If your loved one will only be with us for a short-term stay we can offer a full service of transition of care.
