No one wants to go back to the hospital. At the Gardens of Monroe, we understand how important it is for your recovery to avoid unnecessary rehospitalizations. To best support our patients on their road to recovery, we offer telemedicine. This cutting-edge technology enables us to provide live physician coverage during evenings, weekends and holidays when your regular physician may not be available.
Using state-of-the-art equipment and supported by a nurse who is trained in telemedicine support, a doctor can meet with you in a virtual visit from the comfort of your room. During this doctor’s visit, you and the doctor can communicate through the screen and see each other and the doctor has full access to your vital signs.
The telemedicine doctor will collaborate with your primary physician and even call your physician after hours if needed so that they can work together for your best outcome.
Through telemedicine, we are using innovative technology to provide the highest level of care to our patients. This program allows us to make sure that you receive care in the most timely fashion, and that your medical needs are quickly addressed to avoid complications that could cause an unnecessary return to the hospital that could further compromise your health.
