These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The final statistic we considered in this area is the number of patients that were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
