Helping patients return to pain-free, more physically active lifestyles
At Adventist Health Simi Valley, we employ a nurse who provides tailored assistance to joint replacement patients, their families and their caregivers. Kathryn Harada provides one-on-one care to inpatients and outpatients alike. The primary goal of a nurse navigator is to ensure the comfort and stability of patients as well as the ongoing and timely accesses to effective care. Nurse navigators educate patients on materials relating to their unique diagnoses. In addition, a nurse navigator will offer you referrals to helpful community resources. Our nurse navigator will ensure you have the best possible experience before, during and after your procedure.
As the point-person for coordination of care, nurse navigators bring together the entire care team. From surgeons, physicians and anesthesiologists to case managers, nurses, physical therapists and more – your nurse navigator will work tirelessly to ensure your experience is as smooth as possible.
