Beyond the Nurses’ Station

Beyond the Nurses’ Station

 

 

 

 

Beyond the nurses’ station

Is Rehabilitation

Where patients arise

To do exercise

They’ll stretch and bend

Until they mend

Whatever was wrong

Rehab will make strong

P.T. puts on weights

O.T. concentrates

On day-to-day agility

And ’round-the-house ability

From touching your toes

To putting on clothes

Each therapist knows

“You move it or lose it!”

That’s just how it goes

And if problems appear

With speech that’s unclear

Or trouble with swallows

Speech therapy follows

In time, just as planned

The patients will stand

Then walk on their own

And some day go home
