Staff Nurse

The Licensed Practical Nurse and/or the Registered Nurse is responsible for providing resident care and to perform those tasks that require a valid nursing license. General responsibilities include obtaining vital signs; administering medications; administering treatments; coordinating and documenting resident care; communicating with physicians and other health care providers; interacting with family members; and supervising the direct care provided by unlicensed personal care assistants. Nurses will perform only those tasks within the scope of their applicable board of nursing. All wellness employees report directly to the Director of Wellness. Licensed nurses may be required to be on-call and/or to participate in the manager-on-duty program.
