Autumn Lake offers a highly specialized state-of-the art Pulmonary Care Program overseen by Dr. Alan Silvey, a Board Certified Pulmonary Disease Specialist. A full-time, in house Respiratory Therapist works with patients on Trach care, weaning and decannulation, BiPAP and CPAP usage. Together with expert physical and occupational therapists, the pulmonary team treats patients with lung and breathing related diseases including CHF, COPD, Emphysema, Pneumonia and Asthma.
This unique program reduces hospital readmission rates by an average of 80 percent within the first 30 days of hospital discharge. No more in and out of the hospital. Now pulmonary patients can focus on their overall rehabilitation and steadily returning to their highest level of functioning. This program means peace of mind for patients and their families, as well as their specialists in the community. They can count on Autumn Lake Healthcare at Oceanview to keep the patient stable and steadily improving in their physical functioning.
Patients are educated throughout their stay on managing their disease and clinical needs. This enables patients to return to home quickly, and continue living in their own homes empowered by the tools needed to maximize their health.
