This is an 85 bed Skilled Nursing Facility in Florala, AL. We are a small facility with a very supportive Administrator and we work very close with the nursing staff. We have a small gym and office, but a good team atmosphere. We have a beautiful lake 2 miles away and we are about an hour from the beach. Our gym is approx. 28x18 and has 1 window that looks out to a open grassy area. We do have a separate office. We have parallel bars, stairs, omni-cycle, exercise bike. We have an FMP program that includes Sitercise and Bowling, Ambulation, Splinting, and Range of Motion. Our Nursing Staff and Administration is very pro therapy and value the input of therapy. We work very closely with nursing to ensure the best patient outcomes. With being a small home the caseload varies, but usually we typically run 8-10 patients with about 3 21 days stays at a time. We have a variety of diagnosis. We generally have high functioning patients and we have quite a few that return home. TESTIMONIAL "I love working at Florala because it is a very pro therapy environment and nursing works with therapy. The home is very clean and the staff cares very much for the residents and their coworkers. The Administrator is not afraid to get her hands dirty and is always on the halls to visit with the staff and residents to see what she can do to help. Our Rehab Director goes above and beyond to make sure the department runs smoothly." Shawn, LPTA.
