Details of Experience:

On the 8th month, the 19th day of the year 2022, Timothy McKinney was admitted to Centennial Medical Center with admitting diagnosis of Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). This left Mr. McKinney with muscle weakness, difficulty walking, a long-term feeding tube, and needing assistance with personal care. He came to our Creekside community for occupational and physical rehabilitation to be able to return home.

Upon arrival, Mr. McKinney was greeted by Creekside’s Welcome Committee, which includes Therapy, Nursing, Social Services, Activities, and Concierge Services. Initially, Mr. McKinney was evaluated by Kelli, Physical Therapist, along with Katie, Occupational Therapist. He required therapeutic rehabilitation to restore strength and increase functional activity ranging from transfer/mobility and dynamic balance on a minimal dependent level. Before hospitalization, Mr. McKinney was a very self-sufficient, so he was determined to return to total independence with all Activities of Daily Living (ADLs).

Mr. McKinney maintained a constant work ethic with our rehabilitation team. His baseline goals were met after four weeks, where he progressed from total dependency to modified independence with a walker. He produced major improvements in four weeks with gross motor movement skills to promote his ability to manage dressing and groom himself with stand-by assistance to perform the ADLs with increased independence and safety with Occupational Therapy. Not just that, he also increased his ability to safely ambulate on distance-level surfaces using a rolling walker from 50 feet to 150 feet, along with safely ascending/descending four steps with supervision. Thanks to our amazing therapy team, His goals in care planning were met and exceeded in the time frame of his admission to his discharge.

Mr. McKinney achieved his goals after four weeks of rehabilitation services. He was discharged with a distance level of 150 feet using a rolling walker, safely performing bed mobility transfer and toileting tasks using raised toilet seat with modified independence. Our Discharge Coordinator Mrs. Josie assisted with Mr. McKinney’s discharge back home with his family. He was extremely grateful to the entire team at Creekside.

There was nothing but praise and great words to say about them and their efforts to ensure that his well-being was our number one priority.
