Last Patient in COVID Recovery Unit Goes Home!

Tears flow as Agustin Tlathuetl sees his children for the first time in months and thanks his caregivers at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center for giving him a second chance at life. After two months in the ICU, Tlathuetl's condition slowly but steadily improved, and he was eventually weaned off the ventilator and moved to the COVID Recovery Unit, under the direction of Dr. Leroy Lindsay and Dr. Laura Kolbe.

Recovering from COVID-19? Here are some challenges you may experience.

We now know that being COVID free does not mean recovery. Patients are known to suffer varying after-effects inclduing weakness, P.T.S.D., cognitive decline, among other issues. The New Yorker interviewed Dr. Alfred Gellhorn, one of our Rehabilitation Medicine physicians redeployed on the frontlines, on what health after COVID looks like. Dr. Gellhorn spoke about the importance of rehabilitation to build back strength and cognitive function, in addition to the importance of addressing the mental issues that patients may be suffering.
