How did this patient hear about The Chateau at Brooklyn Rehabilitation & Nursing Center? Online

Ms. Jessica Eastmond-Rodriguez was admitted to The Chateau in November of 2017 after experiencing a fall at home and a resulting admission to the hospital. Although a young woman, she was experiencing many orthopedic challenges and subsequent pain. When she arrived at The Chateau she was unable to walk and needed assistance with all of her activities of daily living, causing a lot of frustration. She wanted very much to push and continue walking, but every time she attempted to go to therapy, the pain was too much to handle.

After a lengthy discussion with her doctor and therapists at The Chateau, Jessica decided that it best to undergo a knee and hip replacement. The clinicians here at The Chateau recommended that these two procedures would minimize pain and provide her with a great opportunity for successful therapy. She decided to have her hip replacement done first; however, she needed to work with the therapists at The Chateau to build up muscle strength for her new hip. After spending a few weeks working with the therapists and fighting through the pain, the doctors felt she was ready for the hip replacement. Prior to going out for her surgery the staff informed her that as soon as she’s ready to come back from the hospital they were looking forward to helping her continue her progress.

Thankfully, the surgery went well and within a few days Jessica was back at The Chateau and ready to continue on her road to recovery. Within the first few days of returning she was already seeing major improvement and a major decrease in her pain. She was excited to go to the gym every day and get comfortable walking on her new hip. Afterwards, the next step was to undergo a knee replacement.

After scheduling an appointment with her orthopedic surgeon, Jessica went to the hospital for her knee replacement and was back at The Chateau for her final set of rehabilitation services. It is currently one week since that procedure was done, and she is coming along very well. The recovery process will take a few more weeks after which Jessica is hoping to move down to Florida to be with her daughter. Jessica is very happy to be at this point in her progress and thankful for all that has been done for her at The Chateau. She mentioned how all the staff have been great to her and were always willing to go above and beyond to make sure she was comfortable. She was especially appreciative for her therapists, Parita, Marie and Lyuenda for gently and patiently helping her through every step of the process.

We at The Chateau are happy to have been able to help Jessica on her extensive and intricate journey of healing, and are thrilled that she will be going home in a condition that she will be independent and pain free. We wish her nothing but the best and continued success for all her future endeavors.
