Programs at a Glance
Depending on the complexity of the surgery, the physician may prescribe the patient to stay in a skilled nursing facility to help facilitate recovery. Post-surgical care may require a combination of IV medicines, nutritional support, skilled nursing, and physical therapy during the recovery period.
IV Infusion Therapy
There are times when a patient is unable to take medication orally or do not respond well to that type of medication. Their provider may prescribe for IV Infusion therapy where medicine is administered into the patient’s vein. Our patients can rely on the comfort of having trained, licensed health professionals experienced in IV Infusion therapy attending to their needs.
Chronic Wound Care
Healing chronic wounds is our specialty. Our skilled Certified Wound Care Nurse, with direction from the physician, uses the latest advances in technology to promote healing and alleviation of the pain associated with the wound. Our goal is to increase the patient’s quality of life.
Physical Therapy in a skilled nursing facility promotes, maintains, and restores the physical functions of our patients. Upon admission, the patient is evaluated, and a plan of care is established to improve their endurance, mobility, balance, and strength. Out-patient physical therapy is also available at JCH.
Quality skilled nursing and rehab care with the confidence of a hospital setting is right here in southwest Oklahoma. Our patient-focused treatments are designed to ensure the highest quality of care and recovery available.
