Ms. Johnson

After a severe motorcycle accident, Ms. Johnson came to Cornerstone Specialty Hospitals Shawnee to continue her recovery from a brain injury, multiple fractures, and an abdominal wound. Upon arrival, Ms. Johnson couldn’t move her left arm or leg, had trouble communicating, and needed a tracheostomy tube to help her breathe.

At the young age of 26, Ms. Johnson was determined to improve. Led by our team, Ms. Johnson followed an intensive treatment plan that included her mom’s support.

As Ms. Johnson progressed through the treatment plan, her mobility and respiratory function improved. Upon discharge, Ms. Johnson was able to take steps with the support of our rehabilitation team. In addition, our respiratory therapists weaned Ms. Johnson from the tracheostomy tube!

Ms. Johnson will continue to build on her progress at inpatient rehabilitation. We are thankful to make a difference for Ms. Johnson and her family!
