Mickey Nottoli, RN
Orthopedic Nurse Navigator
Michelle (Mickey) Nottoli, RN, Orthopedic Nurse Navigator, streamlines the surgical care process for patients undergoing total joint replacement surgery. She helps patients navigate seamlessly through the continuum of care by designing an individualized plan of care for each patient, which includes comprehensive education, care coordination and discharge planning. Mickey makes her first contact with patients prior to surgery as she schedules their attendance at a pre-operative education class that she teaches. She continues to follow every total joint replacement patient, from the first day of surgery through discharge. As an expert clinician, Mickey makes sure that each patient achieves key milestones during the treatment and recovery process. When ready for discharge, Mickey validates that patients understand instructions for care after leaving the hospital and ensures that they have the equipment and medications they need. Mickey also arranges required therapies for her patients to ensure a smooth recovery at home. In fact, Mickey even checks in on all her patients after they go home.
