I arrived from another state early last year and very shortly after developed some serious ulcers on my right foot. Healing was not happening and I was referred to a vascular surgeon who found I had peripheral vascular disease. The long and the short of it was two toe amputations, which were quickly followed by my right leg being removed. The story I really need to tell is about what happened after.
I was transferred from The State Rehab Centre (SRC) to Albany and I found both SRC and the Sub acute ward in Albany to be an excellent experience. The nursing staff, doctors and physio/OT workers in both places were beyond good. They made me feel at ease, even about losing my leg, comfortable with the process and motivated me to see beyond the loss. I can not sing their praises enough.
There are three or four people who deserve special mention, but to do so would be unfair to so many who did not have any actual involvement with me, let it just be noted that everyone who was looking after me deserves a standing ovation. Many thanks to the sub acute ward and the SRC.
I do have one complaint, but I will make that the subject of another story because I do not want to distract from the outstanding work of these two centres.
