For your patient, knowledge is power. For your hospital, knowledge is necessity.
RecoverRite® produces comprehensive, easy-to-understand, customized patient education notebooks and handbooks. Our products guide patients through the pre-op process, as well as the confusing and often frightening days and weeks after surgery.
Studies show that patient recall after consultation is only 43% and this drops to 38% four to six weeks later. Patients and their families need tools to help them feel less fearful and overwhelmed when they leave the hospital. By providing them with complete, yet simple, discharge information, patients will have a more successful and informed role in their own recovery and self-care. Patient education typically stops when they leave the hospital, although the need for information usually does not.
RecoverRite® changes the dynamics of recovery, improves the patient experience and helps to reduce readmissions.
In the face of growing concerns about astronomical health costs, readmission rates could very well lead to multi-million dollar penalties throughout the industry as federal rules allow Medicare to penalize hospitals with substandard outcomes. The stakes are also tremendously high for patients: those who receive insufficient post-surgical information are more likely to be readmitted after discharge. Because of these new federal rules, the RecoverRite® family of products could have a direct and positive impact not only on the patient experience, but on the bottom line for hospitals and healthcare professionals.
Make sure your patients recover well with RecoverRite®
I have used RecoverRite® products for our post-op open heart, heart failure, MI and PCI patients for several years. RecoverRite® has always provided tremendous insight into preparing these educational materials. The feedback I have received from patients, family members and colleagues is always positive. I am proud to be able to provide an outstanding, professional product to our patients.

My organization recently implemented the utilization of the RecoverRite® DVD, “Recovering From Heart Surgery” as part of our discharge teaching for open heart patients. Prior to choosing this video, the open heart nurses and the cardiovascular surgical team previewed the content and found it to be superior to any of the alternative products they had been previewing. Thank you so much for making this product available to us. I would highly recommend it to any cardiovascular team seeking patient education materials.

Helpful guide - For those who are unprepared on what to expect, this is a good tips and mapping of things you will probably encounter, and possibly encounter. Open Heart surgery is much more complicated than most people realize. This helps familiarize and prepare.

“There is specific information that heart surgery patients need to have in the first 4-6 weeks following their procedure. I have found that my patients are usually frightened and overwhelmed when they leave the hospital, making it difficult for them to understand and remember the instructions they were given at discharge. RecoverRite changes this dynamic and simplifies the terms of recovery for both patients and caregivers. These products are a must for anyone recovering from heart bypass surgery or heart valve surgery.”
