Details of Experience:
Olga Deas arrived at The Grove from Westchester Medical Center, after surgery for a BKA (Below Knee Amputation). Olga is originally from the Bronx, New York, and still lives there today with her daughter and granddaughter.
Olga was at The Grove a few months prior before having her surgery. She had chosen The Grove as a result of hearing very positive comments and being highly recommended by the Hospital.
Olga required Physical and Occupational Therapy services to increase independence with tasks, dressing techniques, energy conservation during ADLs (Activities Daily Living) techniques to increase safety for ADLs, increase LE ROM (lower extremity range of motion), increase functional activity tolerance, improve balance and promote safety awareness, in order to enhance the patient’s quality of life by improving their ability to return to their prior level of functional abilities.
When Olga originally came to The Grove, she could not ambulate and required assistance to transfer herself to bed, wheelchair, or toilet. Currently, Olga is able to ambulate with her prosthetic leg and transfer herself to bed from her wheelchair. She is also able to dress herself and is able to perform daily tasks independently.
Olga has an amazing outlook on life! Despite having certain challenges, she is so positive and appreciative of everything she has. What Olga appreciated the most was how professional and kind all the staff was, from housekeeping to the CNAs to the PT and OT therapists. Olga is especially grateful to her therapists, Angie and Jerry, for always motivating her, pushing her to work hard, and helping her accomplish all she has.
Before her hospitalization, Olga worked as a Registered Nurse (RN) at Harlem Hospital for over 40 years. In her spare time, Olga enjoys spending time with family and friends and playing scrabble and cards.
We are extremely proud of Olga’s rehabilitation process and how much she has accomplished.
