Betty B.

When Betty Berlik arrived at Vibra Hospital of Northern California, the outlook was grim. On dialysis due to an acute kidney injury, Betty also required a ventilator to breathe. She was dependent for all mobility and care.

But Betty had several things going for her that would lead to an impressive recovery. First was Betty's supportive family, who were a consistent presence during her recovery. Then, the strong interdisciplinary team that cared for Betty during her stay at Vibra. Finally, and perhaps most important, was Betty's own determination to heal.

As Betty's recovery progressed, her mobility improved to the point she no longer required assistance. She discharged home, but her journey is not over yet. Betty continues her recovery in our outpatient clinic, working to improve her balance and functional endurance.

Betty, your determination and tireless drive to improve made a lasting impression on us all. It was a joy to watch your transformation from total dependence to independence.
