Ventilator Care

The best achievable quality of life is at the center of our respiratory therapy and ventilator program. Adjusting to life with respiratory challenges, tracheostomy or a ventilator can seem overwhelming, but understanding the available resources makes living with a ventilator manageable.

Our dedicated, interdisciplinary team of respiratory therapists and nursing staff have decades of experience. The unit itself is designed uniquely with comfort and safety in mind. An integrated alarm system immediately notifies nurses and therapists when patients need attention.

We focus on the strength and endurance of each patient to ensure success. Whenever possible, weaning from a “vent” is our long-term goal. A well-developed care routine builds trust with patients and their families, allowing us to share the benefits of our expertise.

Remaining active facilitates rehab and recovery. A respiratory therapist joins our recreation staff, ensuring that ventilator patients are able to safely and confidently participate in activities and outings outside of the unit. We are dedicated to quality of life, encouraging patients to live as independently as possible.

We provide an individualized plan of care that assesses respiratory function in an effort to decrease and eliminate the need for mechanical breathing support while maximizing each person’s functional and psychological capabilities.

Our multilevel team approach is uniquely designed to prepare individuals for the transition to the next level of care for continued overall improvement in their health and well-being.
