Jose came to Kindred Hospital after having been hospitalized at an acute care facility when he developed acute respiratory and multiple organ failure and systemic infections as a result of COVID-19. When he arrived he was still unresponsive and dependent on a feeding tube and the ventilator. He required dialysis as his kidneys had also failed, and he remained in a delicate condition as he gradually began to recover his mental faculties and his lungs started to recover. The first major accomplishment in Jose’s journey to recovery was the day when he was finally able to be taken off the ventilator completely. Now able to breathe on his own, he made steady progress with his rehab team, slowly regaining the strength he had lost after months of bed rest. Jose was then transferred to the inpatient acute recovery unit to receive advanced rehabilitation to enable his goal of returning home with his wife, Lidalia. Then, after nearly six months of being in a hospital, Jose was able to meet all the goals for a successful discharge. Now able to get up from his bed to stand and walk and do all the activities of daily life, Jose and Lidalia left Kindred for the last time to return home together.

“Thank you,” Jose said before leaving. “All I feel is gratitude to the staff at Kindred. I plan to continue with my therapy and rehab at home and getting my health back so I can go back to my work as an attorney.”

Felipe came to Kindred Hospital after having been admitted to an acute care facility due to COVID-19 and several complications that arose from the viral infection. When he first arrived, Felipe was dependent on a ventilator and on his caregivers for all his needs and still required medical management to ensure his septic infection was resolved. Felipe was suffering from confusion and experienced difficulty with initial communication with his caregivers. He also had to work through a few complications and was very weak as a result of his illness, but with steady guidance from his team Felipe made progress and was liberated from the ventilator. He then regained his strength and mobility with help from his rehab team and by the time he was ready to be discharged, Felipe was back on his feet and had reclaimed his independence over the activities of daily life.

“I’m ready to go home and happy to be getting better!” Felipe expressed before he left Kindred.

Pamela was experiencing shortness of breath in April. Testing positive for COVID-19, she was hospitalized and placed on a ventilator. After she was transferred to Kindred Hospital, Pamela began her respiratory therapy and rehabilitation. Requiring wound care and antibiotic therapy on top of her recovery didn’t slow her down. She made rapid progress and was off the ventilator in a matter of days.

After regaining her mobility and independence, Pamela looks forward to getting back to her life as a custom card maker, craftswoman and Sunday school teacher. “I loved the care I received from the nursing staff and how well they work together as a team,” Pamela said.

Anndelina

Anndelina was diagnosed with COVID-19, then developed acute pneumonia and respiratory failure. Even more challenging, she had a septic infection and suffered a stroke. Anndelina remained in critical condition in the ICU at the hospital until her condition stabilized. Once transferred to Kindred Hospital, she received respiratory therapy and rehabilitation. Thanks to the expert care she received, Anndelina began to breathe on her own again. Her speech therapist made sure she could eat and drink normally again and with that, her physical strength began to return. Anndelina recovered her independence over the activities of daily life and was overjoyed when she was cleared to return home with her family.

She said, “I just want to say that I’m real thankful to my nurses, techs and doctors and everyone who had a part in helping me when I didn’t even know where I was or what was going on. I appreciated the advice my therapists gave me to ‘smell the roses and blow out the candles’ when I had difficulty breathing, and when I’m fully recovered I plan to come back to visit and bring flowers to my caregivers.”

Maria arrived at Kindred Hospital in a critical state, even after spending a month at a facility where she was admitted for pulmonary failure and pneumonia due to COVID-19. Her respiratory team jumped to it, working with Maria to restore her ability to breathe unassisted. Once conscious again, Maria made progress every day and reached one success after another. Off the ventilator, she gained strength through her occupational and physical therapy sessions. Her speech therapist helped her regain the ability to speak and swallow. Wearing a therapy device called the EKSO exoskeleton, she would walk and recover her gait pattern, making her stronger and more confident in her abilities. After only two months, Maria was ready to be discharged.

“With the help of all the great doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists and the team in the rehab department, I am almost to the point where I was before I got COVID,” Maria confirmed. She feels blessed to have had the help at Kindred and can’t wait to go home with her family.

Steven was active in the ministry, leading mission trips to Guatemala and India with his wife. Self-named “Foodies”, the pair loved to ride motorcycles and spend time with their sons and grandchildren. In December, Steve went to Urgent Care with worsening shortness of breath. Admitted through the ER, Steve was diagnosed with COVID-19 and placed on a ventilator. To recover, Steve was transferred to Kindred Health in February. His team went to work and once off the ventilator, Steve was motivated to get better and get home – he had a new grandbaby to visit who had been born on February 22. Steve was discharged in March and recently returned to see the staff at Kindred Health.

“I am so very thankful for the staff at Kindred. I have been able to build relationships with Doctors, Nurses, CNAs - who don't get the credit they deserve - the RTs , the sweet lady that keeps my room spotless, everyone here has been fantastic."

On December 30, Maggie was diagnosed with COVID-19 and had to be hospitalized. Placed on a ventilator, Maggie slipped into a coma that lasted two months. She began to show signs of awareness and became stable enough to be transferred to Kindred Hospital. Starting her rehab in the ICU at Kindred, Maggie was always motivated to participate and every day she would try to do more than she had previously. Progressing quickly from goal to goal, Maggie regained her strength and mobility. Standing on her own and walking with her walker, Maggie continued to surprise everyone on her team with her determination.

She looks forward to hiking and going to the beach. “It will be good to live a normal life again, and I am looking forward to getting back to my job in accounting where I’ve worked for 15 years – I love the work I do.”
