Short-Term Therapy Success Stories

Jane Doe admitted to our facility on 4/14/2019 as a Medicare Part A patient. This patient had a wound in the sacral region and left shoulder arthroplasty, along with post infection pain pump removal. Jane Doe was a bed bound patient; she was totally dependent for functional transfers and required maximum assistance for bed mobility. During her stay at Woodridge she received physical and occupational therapy. After only 30 days of therapy, she was at supervision level for bed mobility, functional transfers, and wheelchair mobility indoors and outdoors.

Jane Doe’s personal rehabilitation goals focused on strengthening her upper and lower extremities, dynamic standing balance, and activity tolerance, as she had built up secondary to chronic multiple sclerosis. Our team provided thorough assistance and education with this patient in relation to her ADL Care, toileting, hygiene, fall recovery training, and safety precautions to reduce/eliminate falls. Today, Jane Doe is able to safely and independently go home while using a wheelchair for ambulation. Furthermore, she is able to effectively perform all ADL activities at home at supervision level.
