Patients with heart failure may often feel tired and weak, and simple activities may seem exhausting. At the Heart Failure Clinic, a team of physicians, nurse practitioners, dietitians and pharmacists all work together to help patients with heart failure improve their quality of life and stay out of the hospital or emergency room.
Patients visit the clinic within one week of discharge from the hospital and have regularly scheduled follow up appointments to monitor symptoms, review medications and make sure they are working, provide any needed education and address any concerns the patient might have. The heart failure team regularly communicates with the patient’s cardiologist or primary care physician to ensure that all care is coordinated.
