How did this patient hear about Cortlandt Healthcare?
Details of Experience:
Ms. Loch was admitted to Cortlandt Healthcare with a diagnosis on right femur fracture. She was Non weight bearing on the right leg for over 7 weeks and had to wear a Bledsoe brace. She did not have the ability to move in bed, toilet, transfer ambulate or dress without Max assist upon admission.
Physical therapy and Occupational therapy worked closely together with her and just as close with the staff on the 3rd floor. Each week the patient progressed so that she was able to complete all the above with minimal assistance.
Ms Loch discharged to home with a Rolling walker with no assistance on 6/19/2016. She was able to complete 16 stairs with 2 rails, walk outside on uneven surfaces and manage her activities of daily living for a safe discharge to home and the community.
