On Staff Nurse Importance
We believe quality health care begins with the relationship between a nurse and the individual. Each individual at D&S Community Services partners with a Registered Nurse and in most cases a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) or a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). This one-on-one relationship coupled with a low nurse-to-individual ratio ensures the specific needs of each individual are met.
Our team of nurses participates in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of services for each individual throughout the year. Some of the key supports performed by our nurses are medication monitoring, medical appointment oversight and review, health and wellness checks, and training of direct support professionals about the unique needs of our individuals.
Our nurses have experience with chronic mental health as well as with developmental and intellectual disabilities. With our high expectations and standards, we’ve grown a team of nurturing, patient, caring, and gentle nursing professionals whose goal is optimal health and independence in community living for all individuals.
