Being a nurse isn't just about giving medication and checking vital signs. It takes compassion to engage in a nursing career or to work in a nursing facility.
When a resident said he'd like a rose bush he could see when he looked out his window, Miss Bridgette took it upon herself to purchase one. She planted this on her day off with someone for whom she cares.
We are all enjoying watching it grow, but nothing compares to the happiness she brought to our facility.
We are excited about the construction progress on our new therapy department. Along with the newly renovated therapy suites, we will offer private dinning and a separate entrance for the patients and families that are here for a short-term stay. We anticipate to be in full operational status by the first of July, and we look forward to be able to better serve our community.
