Respiratory & Oxygen
Inglemoor Rehabilitation and Care Center provides a wide variety of respiratory needs for patients diagnosed with COPD, pneumonia, and other restrictive lung diseases. Not only do nurses provide supplemental oxygen for residents who are temporarily in acute need for it or have recently become dependent on it, but they are also trained in Nebulizer, Bi-pap, and C-pap administration. All masks and equipment are custom fitted for continuous and bi-level positive airway devices. A respiratory therapist is on-site 3 times per week to see any patients with underlying pulmonary issues such as COPD, Pulmonary fibrosis, Pneumonia, and cardiac issues such as CHF, post op bypass, MVR or AVR amongst other needs.
In collaboration with contracted oxygen suppliers, Inglemoor utilizes the most innovative portable liquid oxygen systems and oxygen concentrators for those patients on long-term O2 therapy.
To ensure a safe return home for sub-acute patients, Nursing, Social Services, and Rehabilitation staff determine under physician supervision what respiratory needs the patients will have upon discharge and ensure that all equipment is ordered. The team facilitates discharge plan meetings with families allowing responsible parties to be informed on the patient’s discharged status and needs. Visiting nurse agencies also participate in the discharge planning phase so that they may continue the cycle of care once the patient returns home.
