Mr. Brewington was admitted to the Green Hills Center for Rehabilitation and Healing on April 19, 2022, by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs. Due to weakness and confusion, Mr. Brewington was brought into the VA on March 18, 2022. He was evaluated for Physical therapy to assess independence and gain back his strength. The VA recommended that Mr. Brewington be placed in a skilled nursing facility to improve his strength and balance to return home.
Upon admission, Mr. Brewington was greeted by the Charge Nurse, Concierge Director, Therapy, and many more. The Therapy Department assessed Mr. Brewington and made goals for him to achieve each week before he was discharged.
