Re:Mr Andrew O'Connor, aged 74
Iam writing to refer Mr Andrew O'Connor, who has been recuperating from left CVA stoked. He requires ongoing care and assistance after being discharged today.
On 2 December 2009, Mr Conner was brought to hospital with sided paralysis followed by left CVA stroke. Despite providing intensive physiotherapy and occupational therapy, slow progress has been noticed. However, his mobilization was very slow. Based on this, modifications has been carried out by providing handrails in toilet and bathroom as well as bedrails.
Pertaining to his social background, he lives with his 75-year-old wife, who is suffering from angina.
Me Conner has been advised for nursing home placement by his family meeting which was held on 9 March 2010. However, his family refused OT assessment on 11 March 2010.As a result, attendance at day hospital 3 times per week has been scheduled. Upon discharged, it would be greatly appreciated if you could visit him twice daily to monitor him and his wife health condition and assisst him in daily routine activities. In case of any major health issues, you can Re-refer to hospital. Doctors notes which including medical history and medications is attached with this letter.
Based on aforementioned above, if you have further queries please do not hesitate to contact me.
