Details of Experience:
Adrienne was diagnosed with COVID19 in November of 2020. Unfortunately, her health declined quickly, which led to her hospitalization. She was placed on a ventilator and received artificial nutrition and hydration via percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG tube). Adrienne’s case is an example of how severe COVID19 can be. She has been placed on dialysis, as well, as COVID damaged her kidneys. Despite all of these challenges, Adrienne maintained a positive spirit and was determined to recover. After she was ready to receive subacute care, Adrienne chose Hamlet Rehab because of all the positive reviews she had heard.
Upon arrival, he was greeted by Hamlet’s fantastic interdisciplinary team, including nursing, reception, and other team members. Adrienne was weak and required extensive rehabilitation to help her regain the ability to ambulate safely, perform bed mobility, getting up, overall coordination, and range of motion. Adrienne was always having difficulty performing activities of daily living such as self-bathing, grooming, toileting, and dressing. The fantastic Rehabilitation team at Hamlet was up to the challenge. The physical and occupational therapists worked extensively with Adrienne. In 6 weeks, the team was able to achieve outstanding results. Adrienne was able to regain her independence with daily activities, as well as walking. Adrienne also mentioned that it was the ability to connect with her husband daily that got her through many tough days. The hamlet team ensured that Adrienne could see her husband through personal and virtual visits as many times as possible.
The Hamlet team recently connected with Adrienne. She was happy to say that she is continuing to improve and maintain a positive perspective. Our team was thrilled and honored to help you, Adrienne!
