It is obviously essential that post-operative care is received following a surgical procedure. That time when you are leaving the hospital, the risk for falls and mismanaged medication, as well as pain management needs, can significantly increase.

So it means that in-home care is required for keeping your health in safety and controlling your recovery process by nursing assistance will help you as well. 

I recommend you to find out about after surgery in home care before getting your surgery and discuss all terms and conditions of your post-operative treatment and recovery with your doctors. As after surgery home care really has a big impact on your health and healing. Especially, you might know that the results of surgery and healing process could be completely different for all patients.
