My mother has been hospitalized at JFK twice in less than a month. Both times her care left much to be desired. Contact numbers for family not documented on her chart. There was a lack of communication with family regarding her discharge arrangement. Social worker and discharge planner were rude. On second admission staff remained rude. Medications were not given as ordered with staff being unaware until family caught the omission. Very poor accountability on multiple levels- unit staff, social workers, management. The focus was how soon can she be discharged. A disgrace to healthcare in the hospital setting. FYI, I am a hospital experienced RN saying this!

The staff in the Brain Trauma Unit are great. They did a wonderful job on my son. However, don't expect to get in touch with Dr. Greenwald who runs the BTU. After a half dozen call to his office with no returns nor any replies to our E-mails I would rate him a zero for availability. Unless you key-hole him in the corridor good luck getting any kind of information from his office. We were suppose to make an appointment for a follow-up , guess what NO REPLY to out phone calls. If you are in need of Rehab I would look elsewhere.JFK should find another Dr. to run the Brain Trauma Unit!

The emergency room needs more help and more caring personnel. They are far to slow when it comes to caring for incoming patients. I am talking about seriously ill people, not someone who walks right into the ER because they cut their finger on a piece of paper.

This place was very helpful when I needed help. The staff were friendly, and professional. The manager was very polite and on top of everything. I suggest that you come here. Thank you.
Tips & Advices
At the first appointment with a physical therapist, Expect an overall assessment of your condition, which may include exercises to understand your range of motion, balance, and strength. Based on that information, the therapist can then design a regimen.
Physical therapists can work in a variety of environments. While many choose to work in a physical therapy clinic, others will operate out of hospitals and are also able to make house calls to help patients who need in-home assistance and rehabilitation.
Physical therapists can specialize in sports medicine, women's health, geriatric, neurologic, orthopedic​, pediatric, and cardiovascular and pulmonary conditions, among others.
See a physical therapist following a serious muscle or bone injury, especially if pain doesn't go away within a few days, is recurring and dull, or is frequent and sharp. Book an appointment if medication is not helping or if your doctor recommends it.
The majority of health insurance plans do include physical therapy treatment, but the amount covered and the co-pay for patients varies person-to-person. Medicare and workers’ compensation both cover physical therapy.
