Gina was a remarkable office manager in an insurance company before her skull fracture, so valuable in fact that her boss would not accept the fact that she could not return to her job, shortly after suffering a skull fracture and coma. Thus, even while she was still in the acute stage of her recovery, he was preparing her for a return to work. She came back to work within weeks of her injury and her boss accommodated her in every conceivable way. Her story is a great example of the therapeutic value of returning to work. While a unique person, with a unique work environment, it does show that the ongoing cognitive challenges of the work place, can play an important role in speeding recovery, if the pace of work is measured and the deficits accounted for.
Despite her successful return to work, it is clear in our interview with her and of her husband, that many of the classic deficits, particularly behavioral deficits, still persist.
