Covington, Louisiana – AVALA is happy to announce that Becker’s Healthcare has named them one of the nation’s Top Hospitals for Care Transitions. A care transition is a process of moving from one level of care to another, such as from a hospital to a home. This recognition shows that AVALA stood out among all facilities nationwide for providing patients with some of the best post-op care they can receive.
AVALA takes pride in the internal teams that make patients’ transition to home very successful and as seamless as possible. The team sends patients a beautiful educational booklet that tells them exactly what to expect before and after their procedure and contact information for those who can help with additional questions.
The team’s goal is never to let a patient or their caretaker leave with any questions about their post-procedure care and maintenance. Our team creates a wealth of information for patients to bring home and continue their care, such as a discharge plan with detailed instructions for use at home and a guide for incision site management.
AVALA is committed to keeping you informed and helping you become an active partner in your health care.
