Details of Experience:
Mrs. Baker was admitted to Gallatin Center for Rehabilitation and Healing on 4/19/21 from Vanderbilt Medical Center.  Mrs. Baker was brought into the emergency department due to respiratory failure. She was assessed and put on a Bi-Pap machine. She was so weak she had difficulty dressing, grooming, and bathing. She also had decreased endurance and decreased strength. Due to these reasons, she required further Occupational Therapy in a subacute setting to increase independence with mobility, transfers, endurance, and overall safety. 

Upon admission to Gallatin Center for Rehabilitation and Healing, Mrs. Baker was greeted by the Director of Concierge, Therapy Department, Social Worker, activities, and many more to give her a warm welcome. The Therapy department assessed Mrs. Baker and made goals for her to achieve each week before her discharge. Before Mrs. Baker’s admission, she was able to walk independently and complete transfers with no assistance.  As of 4/19/21, Ms. Baker needed max assistance.  Our therapy team began working with her on breathing techniques and safely performing daily living activities. As of 4/20/21, Mrs. Baker was able to walk 15 feet.  Every day, she was getting stronger and stronger. She was very determined and highly motivated.  As of 5/01/21, Mrs. Baker improved on self-care performances, such as dressing and bathing. As of 5/10/21, Mrs. Baker was able to walk 250 feet, and by 5/17/21, the patient could walk 350 with a walker. Every week she improved tremendously! 

Mrs. Baker stated that “The Rehabilitation Department is great!” “The nursing staff is great, and all of the staff works very hard!” “It is overall a nice facility.” She was so happy to have chosen Gallatin Center for Rehabilitation and Healing! Mrs. Baker said she is ready to go home and continue everything she has learned here and get back into the church!
