We know ventilator liberation and rehabilitation can be a difficult and challenging time for patients and their families. That’s why it’s our sole focus.
At TriVent Healthcare, we centralize ventilator-dependent patients in one unit, so our team and patients are side-by-side. This level of access not only provides patients with a licensed Respiratory Therapist 24/7/365 but an entire team of physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech language pathologists providing rehabilitation multiple times every day.
Doing the Right Things. Doing Things Right.
Our individualized case management philosophy guides patients and their families through a myriad of choices, providing care and comfort in equal measure. This process, which enables families to participate in the plan of care, has been proven to accelerate the patient’s physical and emotional recovery.
In addition, we maintain very low patient-to-clinician ratios and encourage liberal visitation, including overnight stays.
Our team is comprised of a diverse range of medical professionals, all with an uncommon commitment to the only outcome that matters: safely and quickly reuniting patients with their families.
Cliff Tidmore | Discharge Success
Heading down a hospital elevator with tears in her eyes, Hannah Tidmore shared, “Two months ago, I didn’t think we would get to this day.” Hannah’s husband, Cliff Tidmore, was admitted to the hospital’s COVID ICU unit 55 days earlier.
Cliff is 28 years-old and his age and general health helped him beat COVID. Unfortunately, his lungs were slow to recover and he still required a ventilator to help him breathe. After 44 days in the ICU he was referred to TriVent’s Special Care Unit at UAB Hospital.
After only eleven days, TriVent’s multi-disciplinary, team-oriented approach helped liberate Cliff from his ventilator and then discharge from the hospital.
“I had a lot of support from my family and the TriVent team,” said Tidmore. “But my number one motivation was seeing my four-month-old son. Getting discharged – with a clap out from TriVent – put me one step closer to my baby boy.”
