Details of Experience:

Thad was a delightful gentleman who came to Platinum Ridge after recurrent nausea and vomiting. After being diagnosed with a duodenal mass, he was brought to Platinum Ridge for therapy services prior to his discharge home. Upon admission, Thad was in relatively good shape, only needing Min Assist (therapist providing 25% assist) for transfers and to ambulate with a walker 20 feet. He required only supervision for toileting and dressing. On evaluation he scored 6/28 on Tinnetti, which placed him in the high risk for falls category.

Thad was determined to get better and return home with his son, Michael. He was very agreeable to therapy and never missed a session. Thad was very attentive when in therapy, wanting to do all he could to get better and go home as soon as possible. He knew that through hard work and dedication, he will soon return home.

With his eyes on the prize, Thad completed his therapy stay without any problems. His hard work made him strong. He was able to complete transfers with distant supervision at the time of his discharge, also he was able to complete his ADL’s with distant supervision!

Thad was a pleasure to have here with us, always in a positive mood and interesting to talk to. He was discharged to his home with his son who is with him all the time to assist him. It is an honor to be able to get our patients back on track, and on their way home. We wish you the best, Thad!
