How did this patient hear about The Enclave? Hospital


Details of Experience:
Dorothy was admitted to The Enclave at Rye Rehabilitation and Nursing Center on July 23, 2019, from White Plains Hospital, following an inpatient stay due to a fall. Shortly after her arrival, she was warmly greeted by members of the interdisciplinary team, including the nurses, therapists, and physicians.

Cynthia, her physical therapist, and Tim, her occupational therapist, met Dorothy and performed their initial evaluations as well as preliminary goals. She presented with muscle weakness, decreased sitting balance and immediate standing balance, and limited turning of 360 degrees, severely impacting her ability to independently perform basic activities of daily living (ADL’s). She was wheelchair independent and needed help with dressing and bathing. Short term goals were established to help her regain strength while nursing carefully monitored the pain levels so that she could maximize her time in therapy.

The day after Dorothy was admitted into The Enclave, she realized that her good friend was coming to The Enclave. She had notified the staff about this. Without a moment’s delay, the Admissions team along with Nursing and Maintenance arranged a room change so that Dorothy can reside with her good friend. Needless to say, they were both thrilled to hear this. This also got Dorothy to a good motivational start in Therapy.

Only one month after entering The Enclave, Dorothy was discharged, together with her friend, back home with renewed strength and independence. Her sitting balance and immediate standing balance was steady. She was able to walk continuous steps to turn 360 degrees. She was independent in her bathing and dressing, and most important of all, she was not wheelchair-bound. As a matter of fact, she was able to walk on her own two feet. Amazing!!

We are so thrilled that Dorothy is back home. When she was asked about her experience here, she gave a rating of 10/10, saying how the staff was “exceptional, and very nice”! We wish Dorothy the best of luck!

Patient Name: Donna O.

Length of Stay: 29 Days
Reason for Stay: Acute Gastric Ulcer
How did this patient hear about The Enclave? Hospital Staff


Details of Experience:
Donna was admitted to The Enclave at Rye Rehabilitation and Nursing Center on June 27, 2019, from Greenwich Hospital, following an inpatient hospitalization due to an acute gastric ulcer. Shortly after her arrival, she was warmly greeted by members of the interdisciplinary team, including the nurses, therapists, and on-staff physician.

Sheldon, her physical therapist, and Tim, her occupational therapist met Donna and performed their initial evaluations as well as preliminary goals. She presented with muscle weakness, totally dependent on a wheelchair for mobility, and completely required assistance for her daily needs, such as dressing and using the bathroom. All of this severely impacted her ability to independently perform basic activities of daily living (ADL’s). Short term goals were established to help her regain strength while nursing carefully monitored the pain levels so that she could maximize her time in therapy.

As Donna was improving in therapy, she was also being quite supported by the clinical team here at The Enclave. Often, Donna’s head would slide down from the pillow, and because of her weakness, she wasn’t able to slide back up. This was extremely frustrating for her, as she had to ask for assistance multiple times of the day. However, with the support of the C.N.A.’s along with Concierge Services, she didn’t have to worry about a thing. She was always being helped with a smile, and that helped her continue to excel throughout her stay.

Less than a month after arriving at The Enclave, Donna was discharged back home with renewed strength and independence. She became independent in everything that she worked on. She was able to use the bathroom by herself. She was able to dress. And most of all, she was able to walk around without having to use a wheelchair. Because she was already a patient once at The Enclave, Donna says “There is a reason why I came back!”

Case Study: The Enclave at Rye Rehabilitation and Nursing Center (June 2019)

Patient Name: Cyrus Grillo
Admission Date: 06/06/19
Admitted From: Northern Dutchess Hospital
Discharge Date: 06/27/19
Discharged To: Home
Length of Stay: 22 Days
Reason for Stay: Fracture of Right Femur


Details of Experience:
Cyrus was admitted to The Enclave at Rye Rehabilitation and Nursing Center on June 6th, 2019 from Northern Dutchess Hospital, as a result of a right femur fracture. Upon his arrival, he was warmly greeted by members of the interdisciplinary team, including the nurses, therapists, and a physician.

Sheldon, the physical therapist, and Tim, an occupational therapist, met Cyrus and performed their initial evaluations, as well as preliminary goals. He presented with muscle weakness, decreased standing balance and activity tolerance, and limited standing duration of under one minute, which severely impacted his ability to independently perform basic activities of daily living (ADL’s). He also required assistance in performing transfers in and out of bed and bed mobility. Short term goals were established to help him regain strength, while nursing carefully monitored pain levels so that he could maximize his time in therapy.

In less than two weeks, Cyrus realized that he was making excellent progress in a rapid, and steady pace. On June 18th, only 12 days into his stay, Cyrus was ready to do a very skilled and fun activity. He used our amazing and critically acclaimed HydroWorx machine. He says that it was really a great experience and highly recommended. From that point on, Cyrus was ready to reach ‘Home Plate’ in his therapy.

On June 27th, Cyrus was discharged back home with renewed strength and independence. He is now able to stand on his own on his first try, without using the arms of his wheelchair, or his walker. He has a good, steady balance while standing, and his continuous turning of 360 degrees went from unsteady to steady. He can also sit down safely without having to use the arms of his wheelchair, which he originally required. The Team would like to congratulate Cyrus on his accomplishments and hard work!

Case Study: The Enclave at Rye Rehabilitation and Nursing Center (April 2019)

Admission Date: 01/12/19
Admitted From: St. Luke’s Hospital
Discharge Date: 04/22/19
Discharged To: Home
Length of Stay: 101 Days
Reason for Stay: Fracture of Lumbar Vertebra
How did Patient hear about The Enclave at Rye? Referred to by St. Luke’s Hospital


Details of Experience:
Umbert, or “Bert,” was welcomed to The Enclave at Rye Nursing and Rehabilitation on January 12th, 2019, from St. Luke’s Hospital. The reason for his hospitalization was due to an injury in a car accident, which resulted in a fracture of the lumbar vertebrae. Shortly after his arrival, he was warmly greeted by members of the interdisciplinary team including nurses, therapists, and doctors.

Rob, his occupational therapist, met Umbert and performed his initial evaluations as well as preliminary goals. He presented with muscle weakness, unable to move at all- which severely impacts his ability to independently perform basic activities of daily living (ADL’s). Short term goals were established to help him regain his strength, while our nursing staff carefully monitored the pain levels, to ensure that he can maximize his time during therapy.

As Umbert was improving in therapy, he realized that he wanted to engage in activities in between his therapy sessions. Umbert would soon begin to attend recreational activities in which he enjoyed. Aside from the fun that he had, he also met other residents with whom he had built a friendship. Even when he was discharged, he said that he would still be in touch with them and will come back to visit. These friendships had also majorly affected his growth in rehabilitation.

After two months, Umbert realized he was making a huge turn-around. Not only was he able to get out of bed on his own, but he was also walking by himself; even taking the stairs. He became independent in feeding and bathing himself. He was a new person!

On April 22nd, Umbert was discharged home. Before he had left, he wrote a beautiful letter thanking all the departments of The Enclave. To put it in a few short words, he writes “…this facility has gone above and beyond in making my stay and my experience extraordinary…”

Case Study: The Enclave at Rye Rehabilitation and Nursing Center (August 2018)

Patients Age: 73
Admission Date: 7/18/18
Admitted From: Montefiore Medical Center
Discharge Date: 8/26/18
Discharged To: Community
Length of Stay: 5 Weeks
Reason for Stay: Bilateral lower leg edema, chronic bronchitis
How did Patient hear about The Enclave at Rye? Hospital Case Manager


Details of Experience:
Peggy was admitted to The Enclave at Rye Rehabilitation and Nursing Center on July 18th, 2018 from Montefiore Medical Center, following an inpatient hospitalization due to bilateral lower leg edema. Shortly after her arrival, she was warmly greeted by members of the interdisciplinary team, including the nurses, therapists, and doctor.

Cynthia, her physical therapist and, Tim, her occupational therapist, met Peggy and performed their initial evaluations as well as preliminary goals. She presented with muscle weakness, decreased standing balance and activity tolerance, and limited standing duration of under one minute, severely impacting her ability to independently perform basic activities of daily living (ADL’s). Performing transfers in and out of bed and bed mobility required the extensive assistance of two, in addition to experiencing intense pain. Short term goals were established to help her regain strength while nursing carefully monitored the pain levels so that she could maximize her time in therapy.

While the nursing team provided care to limit pain, the therapy team also utilized its array of tools to minimize pain, including the use of Diathermy prior to therapy sessions. Two weeks into her stay, Peggy realized she was making progress. Her standing duration increased to between one and three minutes. New goals were set to three to five-minute duration, while she could perform transfers in and out of bed with the assistance of one. The feeling of independence in the air gave her the incentive to continue working hard.

Five weeks after entering The Enclave, Peggy was discharged back home with renewed strength and independence. Her standing duration reached over ten minutes, allowing her to perform ADLs such as dressing and personal hygiene. She could safely walk 200 feet with a rolling walker and could perform functional transfers with an assistive device.

Admission Date: 5/21/18

Length of Stay: 10 Weeks
Reason for Stay: Multiple falls resulting in hip fracture, upper extremity fracture. History of hypertension, Non-rheumatic aortic valve stenosis
How did Patient hear about The Enclave at Rye? Skilled Nursing Facility


Details of Experience:
Marie was admitted to The Enclave at Rye Rehabilitation and Nursing Center on May 21st, 2018 from Greenwich Hospital following multiple falls over the previous months, which resulted in a pelvic fracture, a fracture to her right upper extremity, and extreme weakness. The interdisciplinary team, comprised of the nurse manager, social worker, therapists, and doctor, warmly welcomed her to the community.

Due to Marie’s recent history of falls, Liby the nurse, put in place fall precautions to prevent further accidents in addition to offering ongoing education to remind Mary of the need to be extra cautious. Liby also coordinated with the therapy team to ensure pain management was implemented into her therapy regimen. Robert and Tim, her therapists, performed their evaluation shortly after her arrival assessing her right arm as non-weight bearing with 7/10 level intensity on the pain scale requiring extensive assist of two for functional transfers and mobility, as well as extensive assist of one for dressing and bathing, and minimum assistance of one for feeding.

After two weeks of steady progress, Marie had gained strength which allowed her to participate in functional transfers, no longer needing assistance of two. She also experienced less pain in her arm, allowing her to maximize time in therapy for mobility and ADL’s (activities of daily living). One week into June, however, this progress was slowed as a Venous Doppler scan showed Marie was positive for DVT (deep vein thrombosis) in the right leg. After she was assigned medication, the interdisciplinary team was notified to allow her to participate in therapy, though at a moderated pace.

With her eyes set on returning home, Marie continued to make steady progress. Following an orthopedic consult mid-way into June, her right arm was revised to weight bearing status, allowing her to begin strengthening her arm and to begin performing ADL’s on her own. At this time, she could safely ambulate 100 feet with a rolling walker and standby assist and could transfer in and out of bed with contact guard assist. She could also perform ADL’s with contact guard assist and could eat independently.

Marie is set to be discharged shortly looking much happier and independent than when she came to the community. She can now safely ambulate over 300 feet with a rolling walker and can perform functional transfers independently. She is thrilled to once again be able to care for herself, including dressing and hygiene, as she has increased her strength to be able to perform ADL’s while standing. Equally important, she has gained a greater understanding of her strengths and limitations, greatly improving her safety awareness to keep her home and active.
