Returning Home

Returning Home

We will make sure you have the resources and information you need to continue your recovery after discharge. Our Nurse Navigator and other staff will work with each patient and their families to make a solid plan for reclaiming their quality of life.


Discharge marks the transition from hospital to home. To ensure success and continued progress, the Nurse Navigator and other staff will meet with other care providers and the patient to coordinate the necessary resources needed and ensure they are available at home to assist with the routines of daily living.

Follow Up

The Nurses will arrange a follow up appointment with your primary care provider and the surgeon as necessary. The Nurse Navigators will prepare a report to provide details of your surgery and recovery and other important information including changes in medications, lab results, discharge instructions and consults.

Phone Calls

You can expect a follow up phone call from Nebraska Spine Hospital within three days after discharge.
