Lisa developed a fever and dry cough and started to have difficulty breathing. When her symptoms worsened rapidly she had to be flown by air ambulance to a general hospital and began to receive treatment for COVID-19. Lisa was placed on a ventilator, received antibiotic therapy and was then transferred to Kindred Hospital Dallas Central where she could receive respiratory therapy and rehabilitation. At the beginning of her stay Lisa was unresponsive and required full attention from her caregivers for all her needs. Her respiratory team worked with Lisa to strengthen her lungs, and as she became more alert and oriented she started to make rapid progress. Her first milestone was reached when she was able to be weaned from the ventilator and required only supplemental oxygen. Her rehab team helped Lisa begin to reclaim her mobility and independence, and Lisa was soon able to feed herself and begin to get back her independence over the activities of daily life.

“The team here was wonderful,” Lisa shared before she was discharged to continue on her journey to recovery. “I am grateful to my team and plan to come back and say thank you when I’m all better.”
Carla was admitted to Kindred Hospital Dallas Central after she had been hospitalized at an acute care facility for respiratory failure and additional complications due to COVID-19. Although Carla’s condition had been stabilized, she was still dependent on a ventilator and required maximum assistance from her caregivers for all her needs. With her family at her side providing support and encouragement, Carla began to receive respiratory therapy and slowly began to improve. As her lungs became stronger she got closer to being free of mechanical ventilation, and everyone celebrated on the day she reached this milestone and could breathe on her own again. Carla also received ongoing treatment for a condition in which her brain had become enlarged, and her dietitian developed a nutrition plan to assist with her recovery. Carla finally met all of her recovery goals and was declared ready to be discharged to continue her journey to recovery and back home with her loving family.

“All of us are so grateful for everything you helped Carla accomplish – thank you!” Carla’s sister expressed before she left Kindred.

Certified Nurses Day, celebrated annually on March 19, shines a well-deserved spotlight on nurses who have chosen to enhance their professional knowledge through certification, which validates a nurse’s specialty knowledge for practice in a defined functional or clinical area of nursing. We thank and recognize all those nurses who earn and maintain the highest credentials in their specialty and who contribute to better patient outcomes through national board certification in their specialty.

Mary had to be admitted to an acute care facility when she became unresponsive and developed respiratory failure. She was placed on a ventilator and received treatment for several serious and life-threatening conditions until she was stabilized and could be transferred to Kindred Hospital Dallas Central. Mary began to receive respiratory therapy and slowly began to regain her lung strength until she was able to be weaned from the ventilator. With help from her speech-language pathologist, Mary was able to begin drinking and eating a normal diet, and began to work with her rehab therapists to regain her strength and mobility. By the time she was discharged from Kindred, Mary was able to stand up with assistance and was hopeful that she would be able to return home soon.

“The care I received has been a blessing,” Mary shared before she left Kindred. “Thank you all for the support you gave me.”

Kaitlyn came to Kindred Hospital in January of 2021 to continue her recovery from COVID-19. Although she had faced nearly insurmountable odds, and her family had been told to start making end-of-life plans, the young patient overcame all of the challenges with help from her doctor and team of caregivers and made a full recovery. “During her time at Kindred she endeared herself to everyone, and even though her family couldn’t visit because of strict COVID protocols, we made sure she had lots of FaceTime conversations,” shared Tina, the patient advocate.

“We were overjoyed when she was able to be discharged to return home and thrilled to hear that her town had a welcome-home parade in her honor,” Tina said. “And then, just before the holidays, we were over the moon when Kaitlyn and her mom, Rita, came to visit us by surprise! Her physician, Dr. Darwesh, was in tears when he saw her again and well, just about everyone had something in their eyes on this special day when she came to visit. To say that she made our day is an understatement!”
