How did this patient hear about Manchester Center for Rehabilitation and Healing? Hospital staff
Details of Experience:
Mr. Fults arrived at Manchester Center for Rehabilitation and Healing on December 31st from St. Thomas Midtown in Nashville, TN. Mr. Fults was diagnosed with COVID–19 on December 11th and admitted to St. Thomas Midtown for complications from COVID –19. Mr. Fults also was experiencing generalized weakness.
Doctors soon decided he needed rehabilitation, and Mr. Fults chose to go to Manchester Center. After Mr. Fults arrived at Manchester Center, he was greeted by multiple staff members. Within the first 24 hours, he was greeted by the Therapist, the Concierge, and many of the administrative team who then answered many of his questions about his care while here. Mr. Fults started off slowly with therapy. He continued to show a functional decline even after his recovery from Covid –19. He presented with low endurance, only able to walk about 25 feet before becoming fatigued. He also required assistance with toileting and dressing, which in the past he had done himself. Mr. Fults tried his hardest even while maintaining his dialysis appointments.
Within a few weeks of therapy with our team, Mr. Fults began to walk further and regain his strength.
Upon discharge from Manchester Center, Mr. Fults was able to walk 50-100 feet and take care of his activities of daily living (ADLs) independently. Mr. Fults was able to return home with assistance from home health.
Mr. Fults, Manchester Center Rehabilitation and Healing wishes you well!
