Brookside Multicare Nursing Center Launches New Adult Ventilator Unit for Both Short & Long-Term Care
SMITHTOWN, N.Y., March 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Brookside Multicare Nursing Center, Suffolk County and Long Island's leader in Post-Acute care, today announced the launch of a new state-of-the-art adult Vent Care Unit catering to both long and short-term patients in need of respiratory assistance.
Ventilators support breathing. Though mainly used in hospitals, long-term and short-term care centers provide a safe alternative and support for patients who need help easing the work of breathing. Patients with a disease, condition, or other factors that have impaired their breathing, may especially have to rely on a ventilator in the long-term. Brookside Multicare Nursing Center, serving the Suffolk County and Long Island area, offers high-quality ventilator care services for patients with chronic respiratory problems. This may be a short term solution until a patient is able to breathe on their own or it may be support for chronic diseases and long-term respiratory failure that are irreversible. In these circumstances, Brookside's new Vent Unit will provide compassionate care and ventilator monitoring to ensure that residents enjoy maximum quality of life.
Brookside's team of highly qualified pulmonary care specialists provide services that include administration of oxygen, management of mechanical ventilators, administering drugs to the lungs, monitoring cardiopulmonary systems, measuring lung function and weaning.
"We believe in the highest level of treatment and that includes the technology and hardware as well as the staff and team we put together," said Eric Mendel, CEO, Optima Care.
Brookside is a 353-bed facility and they specialize in elite-level care with genuine compassion.
In addition to the Vent Unit, Brookside also offers both short-term rehabilitation and long-term care units, 24-hour nursing care, stroke rehabilitation, as well as a pediatric program with extended and long term options. The multicare center offers a number of options to those in the Suffolk County and Long Island areas.
