More than 193,000 hip replacement surgeries are performed each year in the U.S. The most common cause is progressively worsening arthritis often associated with aging, congenital abnormality of the hip joint, or prior trauma.
Approximately every 40 seconds, someone in the U.S. has a stroke. Maintaining your self-esteem, connections to others, and interest in the world are essential parts of recovery.
Current organs transplanted include kidney, liver, heart, pancreas, lung and small bowel. Tissue transplants include bone marrow, bone, and cornea. In 2014, 29,532 people received organ transplants; the average 5+ year survival rate is over 77%
Whether through trauma, disease, or other circumstances, the loss of a limb or use of a limb is a life-altering event. Patients experience a broad range of emotions including grief, blame, self-doubt, and depression. The recovery process can also offer many challenges as patients manage post-surgery pain and relearn daily living activities such as getting out of bed, personal hygiene and grooming, and household chores. The experienced Premier Point team can help.
Our nurses, occupational therapists, and physical therapists have extensive experience working with complex amputation cases, and work as team with referring physicians and the prosthetist, when applicable, to develop customized medical care and therapy plans that address pain and proper wound healing, prevent muscle weakness, contracture, and other immobility-related problems, and help the patient to establish a new normal, healthy, and active lifestyle. Our coordinated medical care and therapy plans include:
Joints can be damaged due to diseases, injury, arthritis or simply years of use. Patients suffering from damage inside a joint often experience pain, stiffness, swelling and potentially limited blood flow to bones, resulting in additional health complications.
Partial or full hip or knee replacement - the most common types of joint replacement surgeries, can relieve pain, and also improve gait, balance and overall quality of life.
Although thousands of joint replacement surgeries occur every year, the risk of complications should not be overlooked. In fact, many patients- especially seniors, are readmitted to the hospital within 30 days of discharge due to surgical site infections and cardiovascular events.
Premier Point clinicians can help joint replacement patients manage daily living activities and minimize the risk of infection during the recovery process. Our customized care plans, developed with your medical provider, could include:
The American Heart Association estimates that approximately 795,000 persons in the United States experience a stroke each year, and nearly one-third suffer permanent disability.
Stroke-related impairments tend to fluctuate, especially during early recovery, however, research studies indicate comprehensive care during the first four weeks after a stroke improves rehabilitation results.
Premier Point clinicians understand that every stroke patient has a unique path to recovery. We work with referring physicians to stabilize and control life-threatening medical conditions and reduce stroke-related complications. We also work with patients to implement preventative measures to reduce the risk of future strokes and associated chronic diseases, and help patients relearn daily living skills, regaining their sense of independence.
Premier Point’s team of on-staff nurses and occupational, physical, and speech therapists allow us to develop comprehensive and fully coordinated stroke rehabilitation solutions, improving our patients’ opportunities for positive results. Our customized care plans can include:
Teaching patients to manage loss of body functions and structures
Teaching patients how to compensate for the loss of mobility functions
Educating patients about lifestyle modifications
In-home care is often the best option for stroke patients with moderate impairments because it supports the delivery of dedicated, high-quality health care in a familiar, non-threatening environment.

Pre and post-transplant patients oftentimes experience a great deal of uncertainty – trying to remain fit and healthy while waiting for the availability of an organ, and after discharge with follow up care.
Home care clinicians are critical members of the transplant team, and can greatly influence the short and long term success of an organ or tissue transplant by averting problems through meticulous observation, assessment, early intervention and evaluation.
Premier Point nurses are well-trained in managing complex transplantation cases. Our team of infusion nurses have an average of ten years of infusion experience, and are certified in the safe delivery of infusion therapy for pre-transplants including:
We also monitor lab results to ensure patients maintain the chemistry balance as defined by their medical team to safely undergo organ or tissue transplant surgery.
Patients can also face many challenges when discharged from the hospital after surgery, and often need intensive medical support to avoid infections, rejection, or complications.
Premier point clinicians work with the transplant team to offer continuity of care post discharge to maximize the long-term outcome. Our team:
We work with our patients to incorporate a medication management program into their daily routines to ensure they know the name and purpose of each medication, dosage schedule, and main side effects. We also provide 24/7 nurse and pharmacist availability with complete access to each patient’s specific medical records to answer questions, and provide guidance on when to contact their primary care physician.
