How did this patient hear about Cortlandt Healthcare?

Details of Experience:

Mrs. M was admitted to Cortlandt Healthcare after being hospitalized due to a fall at home. The fall resulted in a high hip fracture which had to be surgically repaired, and a right rib fracture. In addition to the fracture, Mrs. M had urinary retention and a chest tube placed. Upon admission, Mrs. M was assessed by nursing, physical therapy and occupational therapy. Mrs. M presented with decreased strength, endurance and a overall decline in functional mobility with all activities of daily living.

After three and a half weeks of a customized skilled physical and occupational therapy plan of care/program, as well as skilled nursing care to address her medical issues, Mrs. M was discharged to home at an independent level of functional mobility with all activities of daily living.
