Nurses are the backbone of healthcare, and it is no different here.
Without their care and dedication, Copley at Stoughton wouldn’t be able to provide our residents with the level of attention and comfort we do. Registered nurses (RNs) and LPNS are responsible for their overall healthcare, including monitoring each resident and ensuring they are taking medications. RNs/LPNs are also responsible for preparing and implementing every clinical aspect of each resident’s individual plan of care.
Copley also offers short-term skilled nursing and rehabilitation for patients recovering from surgery or other procedures and conditions, requiring a whole different skill set. Rehabilitation nurses must, of course, watch out for common side effects of surgery, including infection and wounds that do not heal. They might also need to help patients adjust to changes in their abilities and lifestyle. Rehab nurses also work closely with other health professionals, including therapists and social workers. It’s this teamwork approach that makes such a difference in our rehab patients’ lives.
Speaking of which, the culture here is much more immersive than you’ll find at other long-term care and rehabilitation facilities. We are one of the few independently and locally owned and managed, skilled nursing homes in the state. It’s a community-focused approach, and our care plans and programming are all developed right here in Stoughton, not in a corporate headquarters. For nurses, that means they can come to us directly whenever they have a problem rather than navigate some large bureaucratic system.
Ultimately, our community approach benefits residents. Nurses of all types play an integral part in the level of healthcare we provide our residents and rehab patients. Our nurses are the embodiment of our “family” here at Copley. They are not just the backbone – they are the glue that keeps us all together.
Next time you’re in visiting a loved one, I encourage you to give the nurses you encounter a special thank you on behalf of your loved one. I’m sure they’ll appreciate it – and they certainly deserve it!
