Post-Operative Care

Post-operative care is very similar to pre-operative care. Using the doctors instructions, your goal as a caregiver is to maintain the patients health and a clean and protected wound environment, which promotes healing. Remember that two of the three phases of care require you as the caregiver to follow the doctor’s directions in a manner which will contribute to closing and healing the wound. Without individuals who can perform wound care consistently surgical results are lessened and wounds may not close.
