William is a 50-year-old male who needed additional skilled nursing care after he developed an infection while healing from back surgery.
William was to receive IV antibiotics every four hours for seven weeks. Prior to his admission, he was completely independent.
The nursing and therapy team at MedBridge at Heartland of Oregon collaborated and set goals for William to achieve during his stay.
BACK TO ACTIVE:
"I just wanted to take the time to express my heartfelt gratitude to all the staff members that participated in caring for me during my stay at Heartland of Oregon. When I was told that I was going to be staying here for so long I knew it would be hard. But what I didn't know was that the care and professionalism of the nurses would really make my stay comfortable. the aides were always timely and prompt in their duties and that goes a long way when you are in my predicament. I truly feel that being here was a blessing I had not expected. I have had 12 back surgeries and I have never felt more ready to go home. I am pain free and stronger than I have ever been." - William
