Jennings Ellis was walking around his home when an accident happened. He had lost his balance and fell backward. When he hit the floor he had broken his vertebrae c5-c6. He went to a hospital in Lexington where he was informed about the services at Gateway Rehabilitation Hospital. He chose Gateway for his short term, but medically managed rehabilitation to strengthen him so he could get back home to his wife and very supportive family.
Jennings could not eat solid food because of the location of the spine fractures. He was on a tube feed program that allowed him to get nourishment while he was healing from the accident. Jennings was glad that he had made the decision to come to Gateway Rehabilitation Hospital for his recovery. He worked hard, made his rehab his focus and was able to get back home to all the things that he loved to do. Gateway Rehab Hospital got Jennings Ellis “Back to Better”, and he discharged back home with his family. Look at that smile. Ready for Graduation!Posted By
