dad taking a walk

10/10/05 I was amazed that my father lived through this hip fracture. The hospital was awful. The hip replacement was so poorly done that his gait was off forever after that. I forced him to do the exercise in rehab, and he actually got back to walking with a walker. The staff was amazed that he lived through it.

He had falled in the Hyatt, in Yonkers, and was found in front of the refrigerator on the floor. That was the second hip fracture - the first put him into nursing homes forever.

This second fracture meant he had to move from the Hyatt to a regular nursing home - in this case the Fairfield.
