Harry McClureʼs persistence and dedication to return to his prior level
of function was unwavering. Mr. McClure suffered from a traumatic brain
injury. He arrived to LTAC completely ventilator dependent requiring full
assistance for all care. After a short time at our rehabilitation facility,
Mr. McClure was ambulating with a walker with minimal assistance. He then
suffered a temporal stroke and returned back to dependent assistance.
When it appeared that all hope may be lost, Mr. McClureʼs persistence
to improve came riding in. We then rehabilitated him again. Upon discharge,
Mr. McClure was without oxygen, transferring, ambulating, and performing
self care with minimal assistance. He has now returned to our outpatient
clinic for speech therapy to improve his cognitive function. He is currently
independent with all mobility and self care. Mr. McClureʼs recovery is
a testament to the collaboration and hard work of therapy, nursing, clinical
staff and respiratory services. Thank you Mr. McClure for inspiring us
to always fi ght and to never give up when all hope seems to be lost.
