Hero’s Journey – James Burke

James Burks arrived at SHC of Galion after experiencing multiple medical complications. He had initially received a right hip fracture after experiencing a fall down approximately 14 steps. However, after his right hip pins became loose he underwent a right total hip arthroplasty. Unfortunately, the right hip arthroplasty became infected and required revision. James received extensive nursing care as well as Physical and Occupational Therapies. He stated, “Initially I didn’t care and didn’t think I would get better. However, if you stick with it, you’ll do well here. Everyone here made me feel at home and taught me a lot about my well-being. I felt that I got better spiritually, physically, and emotionally.”
