Details of Experience:

Day 1 of Patient’s Stay:

Mr. Daniel Terleck arrived to Oasis Center for Rehabilitation and Healing on January 1, 2017 from St Elizabeth Hospital in Boardman, Ohio. Mr. Terleck suffered a trauma to his left foot approximately ten days prior to admission and developed significant cellulitis and an abscess with drainage. He was hospitalized for further workup, IV therapy and wound care

The Physician at the hospital informed Mr. Terleck that he would need inpatient care due to the IV therapy and wound vac. The social worker at St. Elizabeth Hospital provided him with a list of local skilled nursing facilities in the area. Mr Terleck chose Oasis Center for Rehabilitation and Healing.

Mr. Terleck admitted to the Community on Sunday, January 12, 2017. He was greeted by our nursing team who welcomed him to the community. The following day he was met by administrative staff, medical director, therapists, dietary and other members of the team to welcome him and answer any questions that he may have had. Our fabulous therapy team began on Monday with his initial evaluation, developing an individualized therapy program thereafter. He arrived as a modified assist with transfers and bed mobility .

Weeks 1-2 of Patient’s Stay:

Daniel arrived to our community for short-term rehabilitation services following a medically complicated hospitalization. Daniel accidentally dropped a log onto his foot, which resulted in severe cellulitis and an abscess. Daniel required surgery for obtaining a biopsy, drainage and application of a wound-vac to clear the infection. Daniel progressed extremely well with his therapy services. Initially, he was ordered limited weight-bearing to his left foot to allow for the wound to heal. It wasn’t long before he attended his next follow-up appointment and was progressed to full weight-bearing!

Weeks 2-3 of Patient’s Stay:

“During my stay I had the opportunity to experience the hospitality of Oasis. It has been a pleasant adjustment with all the employees who show concern and kindness while encouraging me in any situation that came up. This facility is clean, comfortable and well-maintained for the patients. This facility I would recommend highly to family, friends and acquaintances to be a pleasant stay and generosity.

Within 3 Days of Patient’s Discharge:

On February 16, Mr. Terleck
Daniel discharged back to his home environment on February 16,2017 completely independent with all functional mobility and very happy with the progress he made. Daniel was a pleasure to work with and a fun person to be around. We miss him and wish him nothing but the best!
