choosing home healthcare

The care of immunocompromised patients is done on the premise of giving safety, peace, quality of life to the ones affected by the same. The inherent objective of providing care for immunocompromised patient is to strengthen and reinforce the defense mechanism in the patient which is low. The care should not only be restricted to physical level but the psychological aspect needs to be catered with much deliberation from the caregiver’s end.

The Immunocompromised patient in general is very weak and susceptible to infections as their immune system is limited due to the use of immunosuppressants, which necessarily follows any transplantation, To ensure that the newly transplanted organ is not rejected by the body as a foreign agent. Doctors and Caregivers at One Life suggest the following steps to take care of the Immunosuppressed patients:

  • The patient needs to keep oneself and surroundings clean and hygienic at all times to avoid getting infected.
  • The patient’s friends and relatives are informed of “No Visit” if they are sick so that infections from friends don’t get transmitted to the patients
  • To avoid crowded places such as places of worship, public transport to minimise the risk of infection.
  • Eat clean, fresh and home cooked food with less oil and spice.
  • Don’t drink or smoke
  • If any of the symptoms like high fever, sudden chills, cough, redness or pus in the wound, white patches in the mouth, sore throat, etc occur, then doctor needs to be called in immediately to understand the situation. Every step is important to prevent organ rejection and maintain optimal function.
