– As the Chief Nursing Officer at Spalding Rehabilitation Hospital, I love everyday to have the opportunity to take care of patients
and to help nurses fulfill their desire to
provide the very best care to every patient they serve. The nurses role in an acute
rehabilitation hospital is to provide medical care and to do a good nursing assessment, as well as do the rehabilitation part and carry forward any
learning opportunities that the patient has had, any new devices they’re going to be using, any needs that they have to be preparing themselves to go home, the nurse’s responsibility is to make sure that they have the tools they
need to be successful at home.
