Recovering close to Home
She no longer needed hospital bed care, but wasn’t comfortable finishing her recovery at home. Fortunately, she qualified for care in Haxtun Health’s Swing Bed Program. Workman spent her last nine days of recovery under the care of Haxtun Health staff, where she met with doctors, nurses, an occupational therapist and a physical therapist.
“I knew I needed to be closer to home in Haxtun to fully recover,” Workman said. “When I arrived, they had a welcome package ready for me and one of my friends wrote kind messages all over the whiteboard in my room. I cried because of how heartfelt it all was.”
At Haxtun, Workman could go for outdoor walks and see her children, husband, and dogs. She developed close personal relationships with staff and never felt like “just another patient.” Impressed by her care team, Workman trusted they had her best interests at top of mind.
“Everyone who came into my room was caring for me as if I was their family member — mom, daughter, or sister,” she said. “Haxtun Health’s staff is held to a high standard for patients, and it shows.”
