Details of Experience:
Mrs. Mamposo is a 93 years old female who lives with her husband in an Assisted Living Facility (ALF). She was referred to Palmetto from Westchester General Hospital after eight days of hospitalization due to sepsis and COVID-19 pneumonia. She started her journey with Palmetto Center on January 22nd, 2021, in the COVID-19 unit. She was received by the Nursing and Rehabilitation Team, who evaluated and assisted her in ensuring that she felt good and comfortable.

The patient was referred to Physical and Occupational Therapy for decreased strength, functional mobility that required increased assistance during bed mobility, transfer and gait, poor endurance to activity, decreased static and dynamic balance, and pain. Mrs. Mamposo and the team established the care plan according to her needs and goals.

Thanks to the special care of the team, Mrs. Mamposo left the COVID unit for the regular unit on January 30th, 2021. She continued her care and achieved her goals on March 4th, when she was discharged to the ALF.

When Mrs. Mamposo arrived at the facility, she could only take a few steps with moderate assistance. At the time of discharge, she was able to walk 125 feet with a rolling walker and stand-by assist.

The team is very proud of Mrs. Mamposo and wishes her much happiness and health in the company of her family and friends!
