How did this patient hear about Forbes? From her daughter who lived close by.

Mrs. BS was a 60 year old woman with a history of DJD of bilateral hips, Hypertension, Carpal Tunnel and Herniated disk of the lumbar and cervical spine. Prior to admission here at Forbes Center for Rehabilitation and Health Care Mrs. BS presented with low back and pain in her hips. She was followed by the surgeon at an outside hospital who realized the need for a left hip replacement. Mrs. BS was admitted to Forbes Center on 7/3/2015 for rehabilitation after having a left hip replacement. During her stay at the facility she received Nursing care, Physical and Occupational therapy.
