There is much that is unknown about COVID.
But we do know that COVID can cause a variety of serious medical complications and difficulty performing daily activities.
And we do know that we can help!
Post-COVID patients, whether they’ve endured prolonged hospitalizations or did not require hospitalization at all, may still be struggling to recover. They need access to multidisciplinary rehabilitation services to help ensure a full recovery of health and independence.
Siskin Hospital’s Caring after COVID program
can help you get back to your life!
From inpatient, to outpatient, to our medical model fitness center – our goal is to get you back to living life at the fullest!
Post-COVID effects can vary from individual, with the most common being deconditioning, weakness and fatigue. It is paramount to monitor vital signs throughout treatment to determine the best course of management, and our 24-hour respiratory therapy ensures our patients’ respiratory rates and oxygenation are closely watched.
COVID survivors may also suffer from a variety of impairments including respiratory difficulties, cognitive issues such as memory loss and difficulty concentrating, and psychological problems.
