CHIEF COMPLAINT:  Impaired mobility, self-care.

HISTORY OF PRESENT ILLNESS:  The patient is a (XX)-year-old female who was initially admitted for complaint of weakness and associated depression. The patient did have open-heart surgery for mitral valve replacement about 2 months ago with a prolonged course where she completed rehab and was discharged to home. Since then, she had been doing poorly; hence, she was readmitted for the above symptoms. Further workup with an echocardiogram revealed presence of left atrial thrombus. An EKG revealed atrial fibrillation so Coumadin was initiated and Lovenox also along with amiodarone. Cardioversion was not done.

The patient underwent a pacemaker placement previously and the pacemaker was rechecked again, which revealed normal function. Psychiatric service was also consulted for evaluation of depression and Remeron was initiated. GI services were consulted for nausea and the patient was placed on Zofran. The patient was also found to have an esophageal ulcer, gastritis via endoscopy and was recommended proton pump inhibitors daily. She also had ongoing issues with back pain secondary to her history of spinal stenosis and was continued on pain management. It was finally recommended by the cardiology service that cardioversion would be done at a later date, so the patient was recommended to continue with Coumadin anticoagulation, amiodarone and also digoxin and Coreg.

Physical and occupational therapies were initiated, and because of functional decline, it was recommended that the patient would benefit from active rehabilitation, so the patient was transferred and admitted for further comprehensive inpatient rehab program.
