Rodelio, a dialysis nurse at a medical center, became sick with COVID-19 and had to be admitted to a local hospital and placed on a ventilator. Once he was stable, he was able to be transferred to Kindred Hospital New Jersey – Wayne.
At the beginning of his stay he was still dependent on the ventilator and required a lot of support from his caregivers for many of his needs. With the help of his team of respiratory therapists, Rodelio quickly went from being completely dependent on the ventilator to needing only supplemental oxygen. He also made steady progress with his physical and occupational therapists as they worked with him to regain his strength, mobility and independence.
“I am very pleased with my time here at Kindred,” Rodelio affirmed before he was discharged. “They helped me to get better, and I am happy we chose to come here. My wife and family are amazed at how quickly I got better and they are excited for me to do rehab next so I can come home again!”
Following hospital treatment for COVID-19, Arthur was transferred to Kindred Hospital to receive advanced respiratory therapy and rehabilitation.
With the help of his team of caregivers at Kindred, Arthur started to make progress. After a long road, and with the help of his respiratory therapists, he was able to reach a major milestone when he was able to be taken off the ventilator. In the rehab gym Arthur was guided by his physical and occupational therapists to recover his strength, mobility and independence, allowing him to be discharged from Kindred to continue with his rehab.
Just a few days ago Arthur dropped by Kindred Hospital to say hello to his caregivers and share his progress. “I still can’t believe that I beat COVID,” Arthur said. “Now my biggest dream is getting back on the golf course.”
After treatment for a neurological condition at a local community hospital, Dale was stabilized and then transferred to Kindred Hospital to receive respiratory therapy and rehabilitation.
At the beginning of his stay at Kindred, Dale was dependent on his team of caregivers for all of his needs. He also required wound care, and his respiratory therapists immediately began to work with him to strengthen his lungs. Day by day Dale made steady progress, and one month after his admission was able to be taken off the ventilator completely. With help from his physical and occupational therapists Dale regained the ability to stand, walk and regain his independence.
“I am very happy about the care I received,” Dale affirmed before he was discharged. “Everyone is helpful – more than helpful, really. The staff is excellent and after being in hospitals for eight weeks now, I can say that Kindred saved my life.”
On this first night of Hanukkah we wish you and your loved ones a joyous festival of lights.
Jacquelynne was the first COVID-19 patient at our hospital. Because she was on a ventilator and experienced numerous setbacks, she wasn't able to immediately begin the kind of early rehabilitation that would help her recover. But once she was weaned from the vent and fully engaged with her rehabilitation therapists, she began to make progress. “My journey was long and rich,” Jacquelynne affirmed before she was discharged to continue her rehabilitation before going home at last after six months at Kindred. “The doctors are amazing, staff communicates well at all times and everyone was sensitive to my needs. This is the first place that I’ve been to that everyone cares about you. Thank you all for making me a part of your family during the darkest time and for the care you gave me – I will never forget you.”"
Felicia was transferred to Kindred Hospital after her COVID-19 battle. “I 100% appreciate all that the staff have done for me while I was here,” Felicia shared before she was discharged to return home with her husband and family. “I want to personally thank Caleb in PT – he is my angel and is always positive, encouraging and very professional. My RN Jill kept it real and was always there when I needed her – she is in my eye the perfect nurse! And my RT Sandy was sweet and positive, she always kept me in the know and helped me understand what was going on and always checked in on me.”
At Kindred, Creating Fun in What You Do is one of our core values, whether we are inspiring patients during their recovery journey or working alongside team members to support patient care. Hear from Kindred team member Jonathan M. on what this core value means for him in his role as a physical therapist:
Regular handwashing is one of the best ways to remove germs, avoid getting sick and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Whether you are at home, at work, traveling, or out in the community, make sure and wash your hands for 20 seconds. If no soap or water is available, use hand sanitizer.
We are very thankful for all of our employees who take care of our patients every day. We appreciate you. Best wishes to all of you and your family during this holiday season.
After being diagnosed with COVID-19, Cristobal developed acute respiratory failure, requiring a ventilator to help him breathe. As his respiratory team began to work with him to strengthen his lungs, Cristobal gained more confidence in his recovery and progressed until he no longer needed mechanical support to breathe. By the time Cristobal was cleared to be discharged from Kindred, he was able to stand and walk with the aid of a walker and he was ready for the last step in his journey to recovery, leading him back home.
Lynette was diagnosed with COVID-19, which led to her being placed on a ventilator. She was transferred to Kindred Hospital for respiratory therapy, wound care and rehabilitation. With care and encouragement from her team of caregivers, she started to make progress and was successfully weaned from the ventilator. With guidance from her physical and occupational therapists, Lynette was able to walk on her own again.
“I’m going home soon!” Lynette affirmed before being discharged from Kindred. “Although it’s been a long road I’m very happy and appreciate the care I received.”"
Carmen tested positive for COVID-19 and had to be put on a ventilator and a feeding tube. After slipping into a coma, she was transferred to Kindred Hospital. With diligent care from her entire team and her respiratory therapists, Carmen began to make progress soon after arrival and was able to be taken off the ventilator. “Even though I was in a coma, I remember telling myself that I had to fight to wake up,” Carmen recalled. “When I finally came to, a nurse told me that my doctors didn’t think I was going to make it. I know none of this would have been possible without Kindred.”

Rodelio works as a dialysis nurse at a medical center and was caring for COVID-19 patients when he began to experience the symptoms associated with the viral infection. He developed respiratory and kidney failure, sepsis and a critical buildup of fluid in his lungs, requiring Rodelio to be placed on a ventilator. Then he began his recovery at Kindred Hospital.
“I am very pleased with my time here at Kindred,” Rogelio affirmed before he was discharged. “They helped me to get better, and I am happy we chose to come here. My wife and family are amazed at how quickly I got better, and they are excited for me to do rehab next, so I can come home again!”
Roger contracted COVID-19 as an RN caring for others on the front lines.

Jay and Carol met over six years ago when they were patients at a rehabilitation facility. During the course of their treatment, they became friends, exchanged phone numbers and, after they had both recovered and returned home, made plans for a date. Over the next few months their relationship deepened and they fell in love. Even though Jay has faced several health challenges since they first met, Carol has always been at his side and just recently while Jay was at Kindred Hospital, they decided that they were meant to be married and started making arrangements.
Then, on a sunny morning in the middle of August, Jay and Carol were wed by their pastor and a couple of witnesses who attended the ceremony just outside of Kindred Hospital. “We’re ready for Jay to get better, so he can be discharged and come home, and we can start our lives as husband and wife,” Carol shared. “We are strong in our faith and grateful that it was fate that brought us together.”

After Dulce started feeling sick, she was taken to the hospital where she was diagnosed with COVID-19 and had to be placed on a ventilator. She was transferred to Kindred Hospital to receive respiratory therapy and rehabilitation.
She rapidly started to make progress under the guidance of her respiratory therapists and started on the early mobility program with her physical and occupational therapists.
“The staff have all done a very good job,” Dulce expressed before being discharged to return home. “I am happy that they have given me my life back. I passed the swallow evaluation and am so happy to be able to drink and eat again. And thanks to my rehab team I am now able to walk the entire hallway.”
Margarita developed COVID-19 and had to be put on a ventilator and given a feeding tube. Then she was transferred to Kindred Hospital for advanced respiratory therapy and rehabilitation.
Her respiratory therapists immediately started working to strengthen her lungs and wean her from the ventilator. Margarita steadily improved until she no long needed the ventilator, could eat and drink a normal diet, was independent in all areas of daily life and able to stand and walk short distances with assistance.
“Thanks to Kindred and God I am able to go home to my family,” Margarita shared just before she left Kindred. Her family gathered to welcome her back home as a hero.
Over the last few weeks, we have focused on the importance of getting a flu shot this year as seasonal influenza viruses begin to spread along with the virus that causes COVID-19. To help raise awareness and encourage others to roll up their sleeves for this year’s flu vaccine, some of our dedicated team members are sharing photos of their flu shots on social media using #FluShotSelfies!
After Barbara returned from a trip, she found that she had contracted COVID-19. After three days her breathing became compromised. Barbara had to be placed on a ventilator and was transferred to Kindred Hospital for respiratory therapy and rehabilitation. Her physical and occupational therapists helped her overcome a very long period of inactivity, and she began to regain her strength and motor skills. “My team at Kindred gently and effectively weaned me off the vent,” Barbara said. “Everyone listened to me and really heard me. They also found the sweet spot with my medications to help my anxiety, so I could be weaned – I was definitely suffering from post-ICU anxiety. I had full confidence in the staff and I that helped me get better.”
The special importance of a flu vaccine this winter comes down to one word – “twindemic" - that describes the serious consequences of the flu in possible conjunction with COVID-19. Click here to read more: http://Kindrd.care/6183Gf79T

George had a heart attack and had to be put on a ventilator. He was transferred to Kindred Hospital to receive respiratory therapy and rehabilitation. Soon, he was able to begin communicating with a speaking valve and as his lungs became stronger, his breathing tube was removed. George was discharged to a rehab facility to continue his recovery before returning home to his wife and family. His team celebrated his discharge and everyone wished him all the best as he left Kindred.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends people get their flu shot by the end of October. The sooner you can get vaccinated for the flu, the better – especially if you are planning to receive a COVID-19 vaccine once it’s available. Every flu season is different, with some being worse than others. Your best defense is vaccination, which provides important protection from flu and its potential complications.
When Matthew began to feel sharp pains in his chest, he was rushed to the ER. Physicians had to perform CPR and placed him on a ventilator when his breathing became compromised by respiratory failure. Matthew arrived at Kindred and began to receive respiratory therapy. He started the early mobility program with his physical and occupational therapists, making steady gains every day during his stage as he moved through various levels of recovery.
“Kindred is very amazing,” Matthew affirmed just before leaving the facility. “The staff helped us understand exactly what was happening every day – they are a very great team. I have something great to say about everybody here and I also want to thank my wife for being here with me (even if not in person) every day!”
