Prior to his surgical procedures, he lived a very active lifestyle, where he was moving his lawn the day before his surgeries. “I am always on the go doing something. I want to get back on my feet.”, said the patient. He was only able to walk 30 feet upon admission. He also needed supervision on most of his activities of daily living (ADLs).

Patient was admitted to Hospitality Center for Rehabilitation and Healing on September 1, 2016 post spinal surgery. Prior to her surgery, she was unable to stand up straight or walk properly. She was also experiencing extreme amounts of back pain. When she arrived to Hospitality Center, her goals for therapy were, “to get around, be able to take care of myself, to be able to move around better and walk on my own.” When asked if she was able to walk before the surgery, she said, “yes, but it was very painful.” She started attending therapy several times a week. Her physical therapist, Rob, strived to normalize her gait pattern and assist in establishing endurance for walking. “She was walking poorly for years,” Rob said, “It took a while to correct her gait.”
They had her walking with a walker at first, but she was able to improve to transporting on her own. When asked about how she felt about the first weeks of therapy, she said, “It’s good. At first I wasn’t sure if I would be able to do physical therapy, but I am improving and working hard. Wasn’t sure I could walk at all, but they have me up with their help.” In therapy, they worked on balance, pain management through electronic therapy and diathermy. She worked hard during her time in therapy. Within weeks, she was walking normally by herself without assistance. “She fought through the pain and gave 100 percent,” said Rob. When she was discharged, she was able to walk out of the building with her family. She is now able to participate in activities she couldn’t before.

Details of Experience:
Ken was admitted to Hospitality following a stroke on July 17th, 2016. He entered Hospitality looking for rehabilitation and help with coordination. Prior to being hospitalized, Ken was fairly active, working outside and mowing lawns. When Ken first arrived, it took two therapists to get him into a sitting position because he was hyper-extended. However once he started his therapy routine, it didn’t take long for them to get him transferring from siting to standing. Physical and occupational therapy worked on strength, balance, and endurance. He had to undergo neuromuscular re-education to bring back the strength he had lost in his left side following the stroke.
Within the two and a half weeks he was at Hospitality, he regained his independence and was walking around the facility without supervision or assistance. Ken had a positive experience in therapy and had nothing but great things to say about his therapists. “Physical therapy works with you so you can get better. They want you to do things right, so you don’t have to come right back. They don’t let you slack. They also have patience. Rob and Amanda are great.” Ken met all of his therapy goals and was discharged on August 3rd, 2016. He was sent home with nursing and therapy services through Kettering Home Health.

In physical therapy they were working on his endurance, strengthening his heart, and encouraging him to walk farther each session. Therapy involved a lot of cardio exercises and walking in and around the building. By the end of the first 10 days, he was noticing improvement. “It’s been working my heart and I can tell my heart is healing. If it wasn’t for therapy, I wouldn’t be as far as I am now. It’s a beautiful journey. I’ve come so far in 10 days.” Besides therapy, Fred also had positive things to say about the food and the nursing staff, giving a 10 rating of his stay. Towards the end of his stay, he was walking the entire length of the facility without fatiguing.
