Unlike Skilled Nursing Facilities, where doctor visits are only required once every 18 days and LPNs provide most of the care, the J.W. Sommer Unit has daily doctor visits and is staffed with Registered Nurses 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Our staffing ratio is one RN to every six to eight patients. Each patient at J.W. Sommer receives between 960 and 1,560 minutes of therapy a week, more than three times that required of Skilled Nursing Facilities. And, because of its location at North Alabama Shoals Hospital, all labs, X-rays, dialysis, respiratory treatments and pharmacy needs are on-site.
