My colleague presented a wonderful collection of rehab Haikus at our last staff meeting. I work at a Planetree hospital and the start of our staff meetings always have a reminder of how we can help beyond PT/OT/ST and treat the person as a whole. My colleague has generously allowed be to reprint these for you all here. They are about - in order - OT, ancillary staff, PT, and ST.

OT with sock aid
ADLs begin the day
Patient dressed,

Crisp morn, charts askew
Efficient fingers, phone
Calm restored . . . coffee

PT smiles, enters
protests occur
Patient ambulates

Teary eyes, cough,
Silent aspiration beware
Mechanical soft
