A specialized surgical team at Beebe works with the surgeon. Following joint replacement surgery, the nurses, physical therapists, and occupational therapists work as a team with case managers and home health professionals to make sure that patients have a successful recovery.
Each morning, in a multidisciplinary team meeting, care is discussed for each total joint replacement patient. Nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, case management, and discharge planning meet to plan the patient's day.
