Maggie, Stroke Patient
I would like to express my appreciation and deep gratitude for the excellent service I received from my three weeks at HealthSouth Rehab Hospital in Albuquerque. My stay at HealthSouth was a key factor in recovering from a stroke.
The physical therapist and occupational therapist did an exceptional job in their work with me, enabling me to walk and begin functioning again. The nurses and nurse techs were extraordinary in their helpfulness and a role model for anyone working with patients. There was also my respiratory therapist who provided me with treatments that helped with my breathing problems. She was an excellent teacher in explaining the mechanics of my respiratory system.
The doctor who attended to me at HealthSouth was also exceptional in his care for me, visiting me daily and cheering me on. He was also instrumental in controlling my hypertension. There was one rehab tech whose approach was one of sensitivity compassion and understanding. I had tremendous respect for her wisdom, insight and common sense. And finally there were outstanding dietitians who created the most nutritious meals with much variety which I enjoyed daily.
If I had to grade HealthSouth’s performance based on my experience I would give nothing less than an A. All these exceptional people were my cheerleaders at HealthSouth who provided me with compassion, joyfulness, hope and loving care. It must be a very fulfilling experience to see your patients return to normal life. Again, thank you for all the support which was instrumental in my recovery.
