Details of Experience:
The patient was admitted to Cortlandt Healthcare on October 30, 2015 after being hospitalized for a right total hip replacement. Upon evaluation of physical and occupational thearpy it was assessed that the patient was limited with her overall upper and lower body strength, right lower extremity range of motion and required extensive assist with all of her functional activities.

How did this patient hear about Cortlandt Healthcare? Dr. Stadlin

The patient was admitted to Cortlandt Healthcare on September 16, 2015 after being hospitalized for aspiration pneumonia. Patient has a complicated medical history which includes a history of cancer to the head and neck. Due to this cancer the patient has a feeding tube to help maintain his nutritional status, because his swallowing abilities were compromised due to the cancer.
The patient was assessed by Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy and found to be a candidate for all three disciplines. The Patient was severely deconditioned from a functional standpoint and even now had to use oxygen, which he did not have prior to being hospitalized. So, the patient was placed on all three therapies. Receiving Physical and Occupational Therapy 7 x week and Speech therapy 5 x week. In addition, nursing and dietary all developed interdisciplinary care plans with the hopes of returning the patient to home at his prior level of function.
As the patient’s functional capabilities improved and he stabilized medically, the patient became a great candidate for our cardiopulmonary program. He was seen by our exercise physiologists 3 x week, in addition to his regular exercise regime. As a result of the cardiopulmonary program, nursing monitoring oxygen saturations on just room air, the patient was able to return home no longer dependent on the oxygen.
After two months of rehabilitation, the patient was discharged to home being able to perform all activities of daily living at an independent level with professional recommendations for safety with regards to mobility and swallowing to prevent aspirating incidents in the future.
