Mr. Tevin had been treated for a month at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Hospital for a severe case of gastric bleeding and suffered from multiple comorbidities, including Asthma, Benign Prostate Hypertrophy, and Gastroesophageal Reflux disease. Our hospital liaison had been in contact with Mr. Tevin, his doctors and his family, and when it came time for his recovery and rehab, they decided that Triboro Center was the optimum solution.
Our liaison alerted the Administrator, while working with the hospital staff and the patient’s family to smooth his transition to the facility. The Administrator gathered the medical team—doctors and nurses—to coordinate a plan personalized for Mr. Tevin. He was bed-bound, and his legs were non-functional. Recognizing that his pain was both physical and emotional, a facility social worker was added to the team. A Physical Therapist and Occupational Therapist worked with Mr. Tevin twice a day, six days a week. He was put on a special diet and a schedule of recreational activities was designed for him. Within two weeks, he was back on his feet—his physical and emotional state showing dramatic improvement.
“When my wife saw me walking again, she started to cry—tears of joy. Triboro Center made me independent again; they brought me back to normalcy, giving me my life back. Two words come to mind when I think of the Centers team: Great and Exceptional!”
