The therapy team at Life Care Center of Richland, Washington, was thrilled to hold an NCAA March Madness bracket challenge in March 2017.
The competition was open to all associates and the residents. Everyone was abuzz with excitement as they picked their winners and eagerly watched the games. At the end of it all, John Oberman, physical therapist assistant, took first place; Linda Spence, a short-term resident, won second place; and John Nicacio, director of rehab, took third.
Oscar Hill needed rehabilitation after being in the hospital with sepsis.
He chose to do his recovery at Life Care Center of Richland, Washington, close to home for him. When he arrived on May 16, 2016, he needed assistance with all of his mobility and self-care tasks – everyday things like showering, getting dressed and managing his medicines. The infection had also impacted his thinking and communication skills.
