Joint replacement surgery patients recuperate in the EvergreenHealth Orthopedic Care's specially designed unit in EvergreenHealth Medical Center's Silver Tower.
The unit provides the same family-centered care that has long been EvergreenHealth's hallmark with maternity patients.
Each private patient room includes:
Everything you need to begin your recovery from joint replacement surgery is conveniently located on the unit, including:
Throughout your stay, your registered nurse is always just a call button away. Our nurses carry wireless phones instead of pagers, so when a patient pushes the call button, it will ring directly to your nurse's phone instead of to the nurses station. This enables our nurses to respond more quickly.
Your surgeon is also able to contact your nurse directly, resulting in more timely communication between your care team.
As part of EvergreenHealth's focus on absolute patient safety, we use bedside medication bar-coding to ensure that you receive the right dosage of the right medication at the right time. Learn more about medication safety at EvergreenHealth
