“Where There is a Will, There is a Way: The Story of Bernice Robinson”

By: Heather Tatum, ARNP

The human will to live is an amazing thing! We have recently witnessed a miraculous example of this in Bernice Robinson. Mrs. Robinson is a 91-year-old lady that has overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles to achieve rehabilitation and recovery. On September 23, 2013, Mrs. Robinson walked into Dr. Joe Gay’s office in Marianna, Florida as a new patient for evaluation of a dry, bothersome cough. She was at this time living on her own and not taking any medications. Four days later, on September 27, she was admitted to Jackson Hospital with severe pneumonia that was found to be secondary to tuberculosis. Mrs. Robinson suffered from respiratory failure shortly after her admission and required ventilator support. During her stay at Jackson Hospital, she had a heart attack, congestive heart failure, and required placement of a feeding tube to maintain nutrition due to her need for prolonged ventilation. After vigorous treatment with multiple antibiotics, she eventually improved and was discharged on November 1, 2013 to the long-term acute care facility, Nolan Hospital, in Dothan, Alabama for rehab.
