As you recover from your cosmetic or reconstructive surgery, it’s important to have a trusted and experienced nurse by your side to ensure your recovery is as smooth and comfortable as possible. At Elite Private Recovery RN, our skilled nursing staff is dedicated to providing concierge care in the comfort of your home or hotel.

Ongoing Recovery Support & Care

Elite Private Recovery RN offers comprehensive private nursing care to help you recover after cosmetic or reconstructive surgery. We believe the recovery process is just as important as the surgery, and our nurses support you throughout this potentially strenuous journey. One of the key aspects of our care is administering medication, including injections, to ensure you get the proper treatment to aid in your healing.

Preparing for Medication Administration

Before administering any medication, your nurse will review your medical history and current medications to ensure no contraindications or interactions. They will also review any instructions provided by your surgeon or primary care physician. Your nurse will prepare the medication according to the instructions and administer it safely and efficiently. They will also maintain ongoing communication with your hospital staff and surgeon.

Administering Medications

Depending on the medication, it may be taken orally, injected, or applied topically. Your nurse will be trained in the proper technique for administering each type of medication. They will also answer any questions about the medication, including side effects, dosage, and expected outcomes. The nurse will also create a medication chart to ensure you receive all necessary medications at the appropriate time.

Administering Injections

Injections may be prescribed as a part of your recovery plan. Your nurse will be trained in the proper technique for administering injections and will take all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and comfort. If you’re concerned about the pain associated with the injection, our nurses use soothing techniques to ensure the process is quick and painless. They also ensure you don’t have adverse reactions to the medication.

Pain Management

Pain management is an important aspect of recovery from surgery. As the effects of the pain block wear off, you may experience some discomfort and pain. Your nurse will work with you to create a pain management plan that includes medications and other strategies to help you manage your pain. They will also monitor your pain levels and adjust the plan as needed to ensure you are as comfortable as possible.

Medication Management

Your nurse will keep track of your medications and ensure you are taking them as prescribed. They will also help you manage any side effects you may experience and ensure you refill the medication on time. If you develop any adverse and unwanted side effects, they can promptly communicate them with your surgeon. Our nurses offer continuity in care, ensuring you experience a safe and comfortable recovery.
