Success Story: Mr. Bill Garrett

December 6, 2020

Mr. Bill Garrett was admitted to Boyd Nursing for rehabilitation in August following complications of a L shoulder abscess. Upon admission, Mr. Garrett presented with decreased strength and activity tolerance, limited ROM, immobility, and required extensive assistance with ADLs. Later, Mr. Garrett acquired COVID-19 to further challenge his recovery process.

Given the complexity of his situation, Mr. Garrett required IV medication management, lab monitoring, Physical Therapy, and Occupational Therapy services in order to return to community living.

Despite all the obstacles, this did not damper Mr. Garrett’s will to return home with his family. Mr. Garrett is a Veteran of the U.S. Military. Those same characteristics of faith, courage, will power, and endurance that he encompassed as a soldier prevailed throughout his hospitalizations and rehabilitative stay while at Boyd.

We are pleased to announce that Mr. Garrett has improved in his strength and mobility to be able to perform assisted transfers and participate in his self-care activities. This improvement enables him to be able to return home to his family in time for the Holiday Season!

Congratulations Mr. Garrett! We are happy to have been able to assist you during your recovery.
