PATIENT PROFILE:

Robert is a 71-year-old male with a history of severe multi-vessel coronary artery disease. After experiencing a major heart attack Robert underwent a coronary artery bypass graft surgery. His doctor recommended post-acute skilled nursing and rehabilitation services before returning home.

 

POST-ACUTE NEED:

Robert lives on his own in a single story house and was independent before his hospitalization. He needed strengthening to walk safely. He also needed to improve his ability to care for his daily needs, such as preparing meals, dressing and bathing.

 

POST-ACUTE STAY:

At MedBridge at ManorCare Health Services - Sarasota, the interdisciplinary team created a care plan to help Robert meet his goals. The nursing team took care of his incision, taught him about wound care and medication management. The therapy team worked with Robert to regain strength and learn energy conservation techniques. The dietary and clinical team helped Robert work on lifestyle changes, such as diet and managing stress.

 

BACK TO ACTIVE:

"I suffered a major heart attack and was taken to Sarasota Memorial Hospital. After my triple bypass surgery and four days in the hospital, I was transported to MedBridge at ManorCare for physical and occupational therapy. I must say, my quick recovery was due to the competency of the staff at ManorCare. From nurses to the CNA staff, to the rehab staff and administration, I was treated with lots of care and lots of smiles. Everyone at ManorCare can take credit for my recovery. I am so glad I chose ManorCare - Sarasota." - Robert
