I worked with this patient for 1 day but I learned so much from this experience. With this patient I had to clean and change gauze on his feet from having mallet toe, bath him and change his clothing, do physical therapy exercises to strengthen his arms and legs, I had to put him in a hoist to allow him to use the bathroom and play games with him to help him with his memory.
