Success Story: Nina L.

Nina L. was admitted to Fountainview Nursing and Rehab after being hospitalized for sepsis. Following her hospitalization, Nina experienced significant weakness resulting in decrease ability to transfer, ambulate, or complete self care tasks required for independent living.

Nina received evaluations by our physical therapy and occupational therapy teams, and an individualized plan of treatment was designed to target the specific deficit areas that were preventing Nina from going home. Nina participated in extensive PT and OT therapy 5 days each week to improve her balance, endurance, activity tolerance ,transfers, and ambulation. Nina was very motivated to complete her daily exercises, and she demonstrated excellent progress. In less than 30 days, Nina returned home to live independently.

It was a pleasure to work with Nina and assist her in reaching her goals!
