Rehabilitation: HealthSouth

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 03-11-2010


A few weeks ago a friend fell and broke his hip and I guess his thigh bone as he had to have a pen down into his leg. He rehabilitated at HealthSouth. Last week, a friend of the family had a stroke and he chose HealthSouth. I visited with both of them while they were receiving therapy. HealthSouth is a good place…Friendly folks, good food and they push the patients to get on the road to recovery. No laying around for those folks and yet they seem to have the respect of all the patients there. They have the Rehabilitation Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Neuro-Psychology, Respiratory Therapy, Speech-Language Pathology, Dietary and Nutritional Counseling and a Case Manager for the patient and family. We had a meal one day last week and found the food to be very good. According to the HealthSouth’s web site they have over 1800 locations. Here at Albuquerque, they have really taken good care of both of these folks…I hope you or a family member never need rehabilation , but if you do I think it would be hard to beat HealthSouth…..Pete

HealthSouth is fighting Obamacare tooth and nail because, if Obamacare goes into effect in its present form, the government will greatly limit their profits. If this happens, they will greatly reduce their services. I say APPEAL OBAMACARE!!!! At the very least, let’s hope that Prince Harry is not lying when he said that he is willing adjust and revise obamacare.

Yeah, lets hope it is revised or repealed…
