Delitha’s Story

Wednesday, April 24th, 2013 @ 3:29PM

Delitha was admitted to a local hospital on January 5th, 2013 with septic shock, a severe life threatening condition, following surgery to correct a small bowel obstruction.  While hospitalized this admission, she required multiple abdominal surgeries leaving her with extensive open wounds which became infected.  Unfortunately, Delitha developed further post-operative complications including respiratory failure requiring ventilator support and tracheostomy placement.

Since Delitha had extensive wounds and was unable to be weaned from the ventilator at this level of care, her physician chose to transfer her to our facility for specialized care.

On January 18th, 2013 Mrs. Davis was admitted to our facility.  While at Noland Hospital Montgomery, Delitha was successfully weaned from the ventilator and her tracheostomy was removed.  Our wound care expert along with our infectious disease specialist made tremendous progress with her wounds.

Our rehabilitation team worked with Delitha extensively, progressing her from a bedbound state upon admission to walking without assistance.

On February 26th, 2013 Mrs. Davis was discharged from our facility with a new outlook on life.  She is thankful for the specialized care she received while at Noland Hospital Montgomery and would ‘highly recommend this facility to anyone who needs this level of care.’
