    Speaker Notes:
    While most nursing homes can not invest this much money, nor do they necessarily need to as we will see in the next example, the point of this example is the company saw a return on their investment within two years. They have eliminated most injuries, decreased workers comp costs, decreased turnover and improved patient care.
