Patient came in to Platinum Ridge on 2/18/2015 from Allegheny Valley Hospital after suffering from pneumonia mainly due to her history of asthma. Wanda came into Platinum very weak and unable to fully voice needs. Resident was very short during her admission survey, not wanting to respond to much. Upon her MBI assessment on 2/19,it showed that she was scoring at a 58. With this resident would manage but in a supportive environment. Needing assistance with activities of daily living by a number of community resources. Resident was able to walk prior to coming in and now needing a walker.
Resident was showing great strength and wonderful improvement just after an unfortunate family event.”I have to get better for my family.”Stated resident. “I have to be home and take care of things”. She showed great determination. Few days later Resident was out of bed and moving around, smiling, and laughing.
By the time resident hit here half way assessment evaluation on 3/4/15 her MBI was at an 86 meaning she was able to join community or home and was “back in action”.
By the end of her stay here at Platinum resident was deemed completely perfect to go home without any supervision in fact she was able to live independently in home or community.
Residents ending MBI came in at an 87.
Platinum Ridge would like to thank our Physical therapy department and nursing department for resident’s wonderful recovery.
I followed up with resident and she stated that she is doing wonderful . “It’s a slow process. I want to go up down all around but have to remember to take it easy.” Resident said she does get help from grandchildren. “they help me with laundry, dishes and groceries.”With the spring weather coming around she is looking forward to getting out and planting.
We have permission to use this story from resident for this month’s case study story and want to wish our resident a safe recovery and our full support from all our staff here at Platinum Ridge.
