Resident was admitted to CHC status post hospitalization for congestive heart failure, fluid overflow and lower extremity cellulites. Upon evaluation from PT/OT it was determined that this patient required extensive assist for ambulation and all activities of daily living. In addition to rehab services this resident required skilled nursing service to monitor oxygen saturation for lower extremity edema and wound care for the cellulites. After a month of month of daily rehab and great nursing care this resident had gained her strength back which allowed her to independently dress herself, ambulate greater than 200 feet with a rolling walker, negotiate stairs and prepare a small meal and was able to have a safe discharge to home!!!
