Details of experience:
Mr. Jerry Satterfield arrived at Quality Center for Rehabilitation and Healing on May 20, 2022, after a previous stay at Summit Medical Center, Hermitage, Tennessee. He had been admitted to the hospital with respiratory failure, A flutter, sepsis, pneumonia, and hypertension. Jerry came to Quality Center needing 24/7 skilled nursing care, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and physical therapy. He is also getting wound treatment with the use of a wound vac due to MRSA.
Upon Mr. Satterfield’s arrival, he was greeted by several members of our professional team. Within his first 24 hours, Charles met with clinicians, therapists, our physician, administrative staff, and other members of our team, who welcomed him and answered all questions. Charles was also greeted by the Director of Concierge, Kay Weir, who presented him with a CareRite welcome bag and her warm attentiveness, which she provides to all of the Quality residents and families.
Jerry had assessments performed by three of our amazing therapists. Jerry came to our community due to an open hernia repair in April. Upon his admission, he displayed new onset of increased needs for assistance from others due to reduced balance and decreased functional mobility, strength, and ability to ambulate safely.
When Mr. Satterfield began his therapy with an SPC (single point cane), he was able to ambulate 50 ft. He needed assistance with toileting and dressing. Jerry said he wanted to get better so he could be more independent and return to his normal daily living. Mr. Satterfield has enjoyed good progress, as he is currently ambulating over 200 ft. His activity tolerance has increased with the Berg balance test from 31 (mod risk) to 43/56 (low risk of falls). At admission, he required max assistance with housekeeping tasks and meals/medicine preparation, now, he is at a supervision level in order to complete. Jerry worked hard and was extremely motivated each week.
Mr. Satterfield was pleased with therapy and all they did for him. He said they were an awesome team to work with and kept him going…always laughing…a very caring crew. He stated all the staff here had been very good to him and was very helpful. Our social services department set all his future appointments. He will have home health visits with Vanderbilt and looking forward to being discharged on July 7, 2022.
