Case Scenario: Outpatient Care
her adversities and difficulties, Mrs. Fox did extremely well at Helen
Hayes Hospital. She displayed only mild impairments to short-term
memory, was able to functionally communicate with others, and regained
most of the function of her right upper extremity. Furthermore, she
learned how to use her prosthetic limb to walk again without the use of
an assistive device.
Mrs. Fox was finally able to return to her home in Stony Point. She was elated to see her family and the home environment and was immediately greeted by her golden retriever,
Sonny. Occupational, physical, and speech therapy services continued
on an outpatient basis for the next 3 months to address any unresolved
Mrs. Fox drove her customized mini-van to the local high school. Her
son Jeff was playing in the first soccer game of the season. As Jeff
was running for the ball, he twisted his knee and immediately fell to
the ground. In a panic, Mrs. Fox stormed down toward the field but
caught her left foot on the bleacher step. With adrenaline flowing
through her body, Mrs. Fox hoisted herself back up to check on her son.

that Sonny had not touched his food or water. After a check-up, it was
determined that Sonny had a stomach virus from which he recovered in a

a specialist to take a look at her foot. Radiographs demonstrated that
she had sustained a fracture and needed to keep weight off of the foot
for several weeks. While waiting for her foot to heal, Mrs. Fox spent
most of her time reading and watching movies with her family.
weeks later, Mrs. Fox returned to the outpatient rehabilitation
facility for treatment of her left foot. She mentioned to her therapist
that she had also been experiencing headaches which increased in
intensity when driving, watching television, and when eating/chewing.
It was noted that Mrs. Fox’s posture had significantly changed for the
worst since she was last assessed. After further assessment, Mrs. Fox
was referred out for further testing as it appeared that changes to
visual acuity may have led to poor posture, and poor posture may have led to TMJ dysfunction.
