Details of Experience:

Mr. Farr was admitted to Green Hills Center for Rehabilitation and Healing on December 30th, 2021, from Tristar Centennial Medical Center. Mr. Farr was brought into Summitt on 12/21/2021 with palpitations and shortness of breath for three days and found to have NSTEMI (Non-ST-Segment Myocardial Infarction). He was evaluated for skilled OT to assess independence and safety with ADLs (activities of daily living) and functional mobility. After being assessed by Skilled OT, they recommended Mr. Farr be admitted to a skilled nursing facility to maximize standing balance, strength, and endurance, as well as to educate in the use of AE (adverse event) for maintaining pacemaker precautions during ADLs, ECT (electroconvulsive therapy), and safety awareness for improved independence and safety with functional mobility and self-care tasks in order to return home to his prior level of function.

Upon admission to Green Hills Center for Rehabilitation and Healing, Mr. Farr was greeted by the Director of Concierge, Admissions Director, Unit Manager, Therapy Department, and many others. The Therapy Department assessed Mr. Farr and made goals for him to achieve each week before discharge. Before Mr. Farr’s admission, he was unable to efficiently perform self-care and tasks around his home without help from his daughters. Our therapy team began working with him on strength, balance, and performing daily living activities safely and efficiently. As of 1/03/2022, Mr. Farr made progress and was able to walk 25 feet safely with minimum assist. Therapy addresses functional mobilities, including bed mobility and transfers.

Mr. Farr is motivated to work with therapy in order to improve so he can return home. He is making progress with skilled physical therapy intervention. As of 1/07/2022, Mr. Farr improved on bed mobility and transfers. He continues to show progress and motivation to be able to get back to his normal routine. As of 1/11/2022, Mr. Farr could ambulate in the room without an assistive device and transfer with minimal assistance. He has shown significant improvement within the short time he has been in the facility.

Mr. Farr Stated, “This has been a really good experience! The people that work here really try their hardest and actually care!” He was delighted with his care and stay at Green Hills Center for Rehabilitation and Healing. Mr. Farr said he is ready to go home and continue what he has learned and achieved!

The Green Hills staff wishes Mr. Farr much success as he continues his journey towards better health.
