How did this patient hear about the Phoenix?
Details of Experience:
Ms. Staton was admitted to The Phoenix Rehabilitation & Nursing Center an inpatient hospitalization at The Methodist Hospital.
Ms. Staton presented with a diagnosis of gout in the right knee. She was in significant pain at the time of admission and was unable to tolerate any extensive movement in her knee, causing her to maintain a stable position of her knee at all times. Upon arrival, she required the assistance of a Hoyer lift to transfer, largely due to her inability to bear weight on her injured lower extremity.
A positive attribute that assisted Ms. Staton in her healing was her ability to maintain a positive outlook. She always motivates herself to work hard and expect the best in herself during her therapy. After two months of therapy, she reached significant independence by attaining the ability to transfer without any assistance. Nearing the end of her rehabilitative journey at The Phoenix, she walked 300 feet with only a rollator with light supervision.
Due to her home including a 12 step walkup, the team strived to ensure preparation was in place prior to discharge. Her motivated outlook carried her forward once again as she successfully managed the goal of 12 steps, and was successfully noted to be clinical fit to transfer home. We wish Ms. Staton nothing but the best from our team.
