Details of Experience:
Mrs. Rogers was admitted to Gallatin Center for Rehabilitation and Healing on 1/27/21 from Sumner Regional Medical Center in Gallatin, TN. For a few weeks, Mrs. Rogers noticed increased swelling. She reported a 10lb weight gain in the past week. She was feeling weaker and weaker and always short of breath. Her doctor increased her medication but was still having swelling, shortness of breath, and overall feeling weak. That is when Mrs. Rogers went to Sumner Regional Medical Center. They insisted she required more therapy to become stronger. Mrs. Rogers chose Gallatin Center for her rehabilitation needs.

Upon arrival, Mrs. Rogers was welcomed by our Director of Concierge, Dietary, Nursing, Activity Department, and Rehab. The patient states she used to be walking with no problem, but hasn’t since being in the hospital. Mrs. Rogers needed maximum assistance from sitting to standing position. Since being in the hospital, she lost mobility. Working with the rehab team, here at Gallatin Center, Mrs. Rogers has been able to progress from a sit to stand with minimal assistance. Also, she has been able to walk a few feet with minimal assistance.
Mrs. Rogers had gained so much strength in the few weeks she had been in the community. She stated that she was so happy to have chosen Gallatin Center for Rehabilitation and Healing. She said that the staff was very attentive, the food was great, the rehab team does a phenomenal job, and overall a nice community.

Mrs. Rogers discharged home with her husband and daughter who stopped by to help when needed. Gallatin Center sends you best wishes. Keep up with the great work!!
