Name: Shawn Dombrowski RN
Position: Joint Coordinator
Describe some of your job duties: I provide pre-op education to patients regarding what to expect with their joint replacement and ensure they have the needed equipment at home. I help the patient identify their discharge plan and set up their post op physical therapy. I round on the patient while they are at the hospital and follow up with them for several weeks after their surgery. I am the “medical concierge” for the patient to coordinate a smooth surgical experience.
What is your favorite thing about working at SPO? My coworkers – everyone is truly very nice, helpful and happy. Everyone works well together to provide an exceptional patient experience. I am so excited to be part of this team!
