Mr. Pankey is one of those stories that you read about or see on the news. It is a story of the perseverance of a patient and a hospital staff that did not allow him to give up, even on the bad days.Mr. Pankey was admitted to the Elvis Presley Trauma Center following a motor vehicle accident. His injuries included a right femur fracture, as well as, multiple fractures of his left arm and hand. He also had a subdural and an intraparenchymal bleed; all of which resulted in five surgeries over a six-week period. When Mr. Pankey wheeled into our facility he was a partial quadriplegic, he could not talk or feed himself and had not stood on his feet over the previous six-week period. He was with us for ten weeks. During those weeks, he became part of our family and had the hearts of our nursing staff.He became able to walk in his room with a Physical Therapist, was able to feed himself and was talking with his family, friends and the staff.Mr. Pankey was discharged to Shepperd’s, a spinal cord injury rehabilitation center in Atlanta. As he was leaving, he stopped and hugged each of our staff and told them, “I will walk back in here and I am going to hug each of you again!” This is the reason for our long hours; for our sweat, blood and tears. This is the difference we make in this world. This is what Arkansas Continued Care Hospital of Jonesboro is all about.
This gentleman was a patient of Dr. Stephenson, CV Surg. He had several post op complications. This is the day he and his wife were going home!!
We celebrated with them, everyone signed his heart pillow before he left the floor!!
This is our Workers Comp patient, that was with us for quite some time, he walked 7 miles every day before his injury and we got him back to that before he went home. He has been back twice to visit!!
