24-Hour Nursing Care

Working as a team of professionals, our nursing staff helps formulate and update resident care plans. The nursing staff has the primary responsibility for day-to-day care. They also help educate residents and family members in skills required for discharge.

The director of nursing (DON) sets the goals and standards for the department, helps direct the care provided by the nursing staff, and also makes sure the skills of the nursing staff are kept up to date.

Registered and licensed practical nurses (RNs/LPNs) provide a wide range of physician-prescribed treatment, such as open wound care, administration of medications, delivery of pain control, catheterization and RN administered IV therapy. The nursing staff also performs basic personal care, assesses the residentís condition on an ongoing basis and keeps medical records up to date.

Certified nursing assistants (CNAs) provide the majority of the day-to-day personal care. Nursing assistants are required by law to have special training for their duties.
