WHAT IS SPECIALIZED PULMONARY REHABILITATION?
At Wills Memorial, we offer a fully-staffed team of ACLS certified Respiratory Therapists from all backgrounds (home care, trauma centers, and rehab facilities). Our staff has expertise in ventilator weaning techniques and in managing medically complex patients requiring ventilators.
In addition, our state-of-the-art ventilators and high flow equipment help ensure the best outcomes.
We also understand the anxiety often associated with long-term ventilator/tracheostomy reliance, so we offer licensed clinical social workers, as well as unique approaches such as pet therapy to help break the cycle of worry and fear. If, after 100 days, we are unable to progress the patient from a ventilator/ tracheostomy, we help transfer the patient to a long-term care facility for continued support.
This approach has been successful for a wide range of patients, including those suffering from COVID complications.
