FFS patient care, with access to coordinators and nursing care available round the clock.
FFS patient care par excellence is the center pillar of our comprehensive care. Facialteam even includes the extra support of a Facialteam nocturnal assistant to complement the HC Hospital Staff. Our nocturnal carers are experienced in assisting transgender patients during the 48 hours after FFS surgery.
Available to you the first two nights of hospitalization, a critical time after facial feminisation when patients feel most vulnerable and are in need of a helping hand. Our facial feminization aftercare system is characterized by a focus on pain control and the reduction of stress or anxiety, both important factors in healing and the patient’s overall well-being.
Facialteam has taken a step further with aftercare to ensure a peaceful recuperation, so that you, the patient, may find peace of mind knowing you are being looked after overnight. We know that the FFS patient may wake up needing consolation in the middle of the night, in a hospital in a foreign country and after such major surgery, which inevitable may cause some nervousness. The Facialteam night nurses are not only outstanding professionals, always discreet and respectful of the need for privacy.
What is a nocturnal assistant? A caring professional for the facial feminization patient is someone with the finesse to understand beyond words. One patient recalls that first night after surgery:
“I was quite nervous and scared, in the first hours post-surgery. I called several times in a row via the intercom and in less than a minute Fran appeared in the room. He even held my hand and helped me feel calm. I was just thirsty, but after seeing how quickly someone came to my side, I was relieved that I would be well cared for regardless of whatever might happen.”
The feedback from our staff of nocturnal carers and nurses is very important to Facialteam as it helps us improve the quality of our services. Each day and night we learned something very valuable, proving that even the smallest detail is vital for our patient’s well-being.
