As an Inpatient Rehab manager, Kathy knows rehabilitation—she lives it daily. But when her husband suffered a brain aneurysm and needed intense therapy, Kathy saw a whole new side of the impact her team makes.
Kathy: I’m Kathy Harrison. I am a rehab manager.
Kathy: When he first came into inpatient rehab, he could hardly hold his head up. He was using lift devices because it was a difficult transfer.
Mike: I was there for about five weeks going through occupational, physical and speech therapy. I came a long way while I was there.
Kathy: I didn’t realize how good our nurses were and how good our nursing assistants were until I was living it. So day in and day out, I saw them work so hard for Mike and really care for him and cared for him like family.
Mike: They were so patient with me and let let the process of healing begin.
Kathy: I have a newfound respect for the my patients and their caregivers. I know what it’s like to take someone that’s been gone through a catastrophic event like this and take them home for the first time and and have all of those new normals that you have to find. I just can’t speak highly enough of them. I’ll be forever indebted to them.
