Rutland Nursing Home
Rutland Nursing Home, located on the Brooklyn campus of Kingsbrook Jewish
Medical Center, is a 466-bed, long- and short-term care facility. We offer
skilled nursing, physical rehabilitation, comprehensive wound care, a
specialty unit for ventilator-dependent residents, and an array of other
sub-acute services. All the resources of the Medical Center, including
general medical and sub-specialties, dialysis, surgical, orthopedic, psychiatric
and dental services, and the emergency room, are immediately available
to the residents. Nursing home residents are easily transferred to the
acute services of the hospital if medical necessity requires, and are
subsequently returned to the Nursing Home.
Rutland Nursing Home has a dedicated 32-bed pediatric long-term care unit
for children with severe developmental and metabolic disorders. The unit
is staffed with nurses and pediatricians 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Medical care in Rutland Nursing Home is coordinated by physicians experienced
and dedicated to pediatrics and geriatrics. Encouraging the residents
to maximize their ability to lead active and fulfilling lives, licensed
nurses provide optimal nursing care and therapists deliver state-of-the
art physical, occupational, recreational, and speech therapies. To ensure
comprehensive care, dietitians and social workers augment the treatment team.
