I am finalizing my second visit to The Pines after having two different knee operations. The staff for physical therapy were positive in their work. Very attentive to the patients, paying attention to aches and pains and always striving to get the patient independent and working to be healthy again. The machines in the therapy are up to date and modern. Every visit to therapy was something new to help gain the strength to have a full life. The dietary department is state of the art. The meals offered are very appetizing and always delivered hot and fresh. Always there when needed, comforting and caring about their patients. The LNA’s were also showing professionalism and caring, always careful in answering the bells but the care and compassion given by them goes above and beyond. All the staff at The Pines are above the normal realm of health care and I appreciate each and every one of them. I will be sending this to the department of Veterans Affairs to provide them with a synopsis of my stay at The Pines and my recommendation to have them utilize The Pines at Rutland as first in line for Veterans’ care.
