This unit cares for primarily patients who have undergone total
hip, knee and shoulder joint replacement, besides which
medical-surgical, OBGYN patients are admitted in the unit. We take
care of med-tele patients as well. The Joint Replacement Center at
Siena has earned The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval for
its total hip and total knee replacement programs by demonstrating
compliance with The Joint Commission's national standards for
health care quality and safety in disease-specific care. In
addition, we have achieved Certification from the Joint Commission
in 2010. The Joint Replacement program consists of dedicated team
members including Surgeons, Physician Assistants, Joint Replacement
Coordinator, and a nursing team comprising of a Nursing Manager,
Joint Replacement Program Coordinator, Charge RN's, RN's and CNA's.
Here in this unit it is all about patient safety, patient
satisfaction, team work, and collaboration. Our mission in each
joint replacement surgery is clear: to safely help patients regain
as much mobility as possible thereby restoring quality of life and
fostering a more active, healthy, and happy lifestyle. For those
work here it is a home away from home.
