John Moved to Kernan Last Night & Here's Heather's Latest Update

Hello everyone,

Dad was moved to kernan tonight at around 7. I am very excited about the therapy they will be starting with him tomorrow. There will be a minimum of 3 hours of it a day. Yippee.

Visiting hours are much different at kernan. Regular visiting hours are from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm, Monday through Friday, and 12:30-8:30 on Saturday and Sunday. However, family members who will be providing care to the patient after his return home are welcome to attend therapy at other times for training, with the permission of John. Also, they are very strict about the number of visitors at a time: no more than 2. There is a family night every thursday from 3:30-4:30 in the patient dining room. This is for educational purposes. There is also a stroke club that meets once per month from 10am-12noon. This is also available to patients and their families. The contact person for dates and information on this is Pam Cauley at 410-448-6320. This place has a lot going on! There is even a healing garden.

All that being said:
Kernan Hospital

Hospital number: 410-448-2500
