    Mr. Wilson was admitted to the hospital after his wife found him on the floor of the bedroom. He was found to be hemiplegic on the left and diagnosed with a CVA affecting the right cerebral hemisphere. He has been in the hospital for a month, initially for acute care and currently for rehabilitation In a recent physician's note, you see that his reflexes are labeled as 2+ on the right and 4+ on the left.
