A typical day on the Rehabilitation floor was a bit chaotic. Trying to accomplish bathing and dressing, assisting patients with meals, helping them use the restroom, and transporting them to and from therapy sessions taught me how to manage my time wisely and really strengthened my multitasking skills. Seeing the progression of my patients was such fulfilling feeling. While some patients never fully recovered due to their injuries, most were able to go home and live their lives as they had before Rehab. Therapy and positive outlooks greatly change the progression of a disease or injury and I am so thankful I had the opportunity to be a part of helping others with such life altering methods.
