Ronald admitted to MedBridge at Heartland for intensive rehabilitation and comprehensive skilled nursing following a hospitalization for pancreatitis and respiratory failure.
"I found myself in the hospital after becoming weak and having trouble breathing, and knew I needed rehabilitation to get stronger before I could return home. I heard good things about MedBridge at Heartland of Willoughby, so I chose to go there for my rehab. Everything about my stay has been great! I really enjoyed spending time with the nurses and nursing assistants. They truly cared about me and wanted to see me get stronger. The nursing staff were very attentive and took care of whatever I needed quickly and with a smile. I really liked being in the therapy gym working with my therapists. Because I was so weak when I arrived, my therapists started slowly with me and gradually increased what they asked me to do. They recognized when I was feeling tired, and they would let me rest before having me continue my therapy. My main goal was to be able to safely walk on my own, and I'm happy to say that I reached this goal and was able to start walking within five days! I'm looking forward to using the exercises my therapists gave me to continue getting stronger at home.
Everyone at Heartland of Willoughby took great care of me. I would definitely return!" - Ronald
