Inpatient Rehab Phase 1
The Doylestown Hospital Cardiac Rehabilitation Program - Phase 1 (Inpatient Care at Doylestown Hospital)
Our Heart Institute Cardiovascular ICU provides one-on-one personal care, and our open heart surgery patients receive 2 to 4 exercise sessions each day.
All education is one-on-one. We cover all appropriate topics, so that when you are discharged you feel comfortable about your home care. A nurse will call you at home to check on your progress.
Exercise is individualized according to your tolerance. Patients will participate in range of motion exercises, walking and stairclimbing.
All bypass and valve surgery patients are discharged from the hospital with an exercise plan and a date to start outpatient cardiac rehab (patients from other regions are given information about local cardiac rehab programs in their area).
