Concierge Director: Trinity Bearden
Patient’s Name: Johnnie Musgrove
Patient’s Age: 33
Admission Date: 10/31/2023
Admission From: Vanderbilt
Discharge Date: 12/13/2023
Discharge To: Home
Length of Stay: A month and a half
Reason For Stay: Car Wreck
How Did This Patient Hear About Our Community? He is from here


Details of experience:

A terrible car accident left Johnnie Musgrove with a complex, unstable pelvic ring injury, left transverse posterior wall acetabulum fracture dislocation, and right hip obturator dislocation. He was initially taken to the operating room at Vanderbilt, where a surgeon performed a closed reduction of his bilateral hip dislocations. After the surgery was complete, the surgeon made the recommendation for the first stage of 2 planned staged surgeries to address his pelvic ring and acetabulum fractures. After working with therapy at Vanderbilt, they recommended he go to a skilled nursing facility to finish his therapy journey. During his stay at the hospital, our admissions director visited him to tell him about our facility, and he ultimately decided to come to Manchester Center for Rehabilitation and Healing.

During Johnnie’s first 48 hours (about 2 days), he was met by the activity’s director, therapy team, concierge, and members of our nursing staff. When he first got here, he says he felt misplaced and knew he was probably the youngest resident we had at the time. Even though he felt misplaced, he explained that all our staff took notice and took action to make sure he felt welcome and at home. As he was coming in, his roommate-to-be was going home, he stated, “all I could think was, that is going to be me one day.”

Johnnie completed bathing, dressing, and walking independently before being admitted to the hospital. After being evaluated by the therapist on 11/1, he required maximum assistance with sitting up the the side of the bed from a lying position and dressing the lower body. He was fully dependent on staff to support him with sitting on the side of the bed to lying flat, and bathing. Johnnie was unable to perform sliding board transfers and self-propel his wheelchair due to pain.

After working with the therapist on upper body and lower body strengthening, dynamic sitting balance activities, and educating and training Johnnie and his caregivers in energy conservation techniques, he was able to start seeing progress. After 6 weeks of hard work and being motivated, he became independent with bathing and dressing. He needed supervision with sitting up in bed from a lying position and sliding board transfers. In the future, Johnnie explained he is looking forward to more therapy when he leaves, playing golf, and getting to coach his children in ball someday.

The Manchester community would like to congratulate Johnnie on succeeding in his therapy programs.

Reason For Stay: Wound care and therapy


Details of experience:

Mr. Derek Wright came to us from Ascension St. Thomas Rutherford. He was admitted to Manchester Center for Rehabilitation and Healing on 10/14/23 after being hospitalized due to a wound on his leg. His diagnosis included cellulitis of his right leg and sepsis.

Upon arrival at Manchester Center, Mr. Wright was met by many of our team members: Rehabilitation, Social Services, Concierge, and many more. He was eager to begin his therapy so he could go home and get back to his normal day-to-day life. On his first day, it was brought to our attention that he and the roommate he was placed with were not a good match. We quickly reassessed the situation and placed the patient with a roommate who was similar in age.

As Mr. Wright was first evaluated, he was very fearful at the thought of standing and walking. He could only walk five feet and needed assistance getting out of bed, walking, and dressing himself. After being assessed by the therapy team, they devised a plan of care that included therapeutic exercises, gait training therapy, and group therapeutic procedures. The main goal was to support the patient’s independence in dressing and walking. Within his three-week stay, we had him dress himself and walk without assistance.

“It was an awesome stay that helped me a lot. I can do things I couldn’t have done without their help. I have been in other facilities before, and this one felt like home.” – Derek Wright

Details of experience:

Ms. Edmonia Murray was admitted to Manchester Center for Rehabilitation and Healing after being hospitalized due to a functional decline which resulted in a fall at home.

When Mrs. Murray was first evaluated, she required maximum assistance with her functional mobility and had very poor balance. She was requiring two people to assist her with self-care tasks also. Now, Mrs. Murray has improved to the point where she is able to walk 200 feet on her own and climb four steps with close supervision. She can also pick things up from the floor while seated. Ms. Murray is now performing her own self-care.

With consistent hard work, Mrs. Murray has greatly improved her overall function and her quality of life.

Details of Experience:

Ms. Amolsch came to Manchester Center after being referred from St. Thomas Rutherford, where she was admitted for complications from COPD, malnutrition, and recurrent falls. Ms. Amolsch was reluctant, at first, about coming to a skilled facility for care.

Upon arrival, she was quickly met by many of our team members…our Nurses, Social Services, Concierge, and our Therapy team. Once evaluated by the therapy team, they concluded she could only walk around 40 ft and needed assistance with her activities of daily living (ADLs).

She made great progress during her time here. Over six weeks, she worked hard with our therapy team to regain her strength, balance, as well as endurance. During her stay, her nutrition also improved.

She was very grateful for the care she received. She stated, “they have given me the greatest gift…to be able to walk again. I can’t thank Manchester Center enough!”

Ms. Amolsch, Manchester Center wishes you a bright and healthy future!
