Patient Success Stories

  • Jim Thompson

    Jim Thompson

    Select Specialty Hospital-Tulsa Midtown, Oklahoma

    Jim was in a motorcycle accident on April 1 in Arkansas. He was transported to the nearest trauma facility, which is located in Tulsa. "My family thought that I was going to die." After spending two months in the hospital, he arrived at Select Specialty Hospital-Tulsa Midtown with a tracheostomy and chest tubes, still requiring a ventilator. While at Select, Jim was weaned off of the ventilator and his tracheostomy was removed. His mother stated that Select staff members went above and beyond. "They brought in a trifold board that Jim could put family pictures on. The nurses actually took time to arrange the pictures into a collage for him." Jim participated in all therapies with one goal in mind: His children. He was determined to get back to Arkansas so that he could spend time with his children. "My children are my life."
