Post-Stroke Rehabilitation with Gabriela M. Ortega
Gabriela M. Ortega, Supervisor for Acute Rehabilitation at West Kendall Baptist Hospital, explains rehabilitation depends on the patient. “Once they are medically stable, we have a consult usually between the first 24 to 48 hours at the hospital to determine what deficits are present and the goals for the patients.”
Haronyd Melo Nunez, Manager of Rehab Services at West Kendall Baptist Hospital, says the physical therapy is mainly focused on the patient’s mobility. She also points out the therapy can be done as a video game to help the patient to move some objects.
