How is Coral Desert’s ventilator care different?
Our dedicated pulmonary ventilator unit includes an interdisciplinary team of dedicated respiratory therapists and nursing staff with decades of experience. We take pulmonary rehab to another level, with the resources and expertise to care for patients with tracheostomies (trachs) and ventilators (vents). We’re the only program of its kind in Southern Utah.
What does this mean for my loved one?
Ventilators may sound scary, but they are specialized equipment commonly used to facilitate breathing following illness or injury. Ventilator patients include those suffering from neuromuscular and pulmonary diseases, head traumas or strokes. An interdisciplinary team including respiratory therapists; physicians; nurses; pulmonologists; dietitians; occupational, physical and speech therapists; social workers and recreation therapists work together to ensure the quality of life for our respiratory care residents. For some patients, that may mean giving them the opportunity to speak or be mobile while still on the ventilator; for others, it may mean weaning them from the ventilator altogether.
Our professionals can reduce the stress and anxiety of being in a new environment for either a short-term rehabilitation or a permanent residence. The advanced Integrated Cognitive Program is instrumental in formulating the best care for our patients living with Alzheimer’s Disease.
Our Integrated Cognitive Program combines a standardized functional cognitive assessment of the patient with a relevant inventory of their daily life details, to help us develop a more-complete understanding of each individual under our care. By matching these two data sets in a meaningful way, we can better tailor our individualized therapy programs and care to the patient’s specific needs.
Visit Coral Desert Rehabilitation, and you’ll notice a definite difference: our caregivers are the best! You’ll meet a team of innovators—Nurses, Therapists and other Clinicians, all professionals at the tops of their games, genuinely committed, remarkably caring and wholeheartedly compassionate.
More importantly, as leaders on the front lines of Daily Care, our Caregivers have a clear voice in the operation of their departments and the facility—and especially in the way they deliver care to their patients. Our Leadership Team treats our Caregivers the same way we want them to treat our Residents: with love, respect, and admiration for the wonderful people they are.
This feeling of Family and Caring permeates everything we do at Coral Desert, and enables us to attract the most outstanding Caregivers our community has to offer. While in our care, please know that your loved one will be well taken care of. Because all of our rehab therapists and care providers are in-house (rather than outside contractors), our relationships with our residents are superior.
