How Santé Rehabilitation Nurses Care For Our Patients

Qualified and caring rehabilitation nurses are an integral part of the Santé team. Our rehabilitation nurses are dedicated to our patients and committed to providing high-level care and inspiring patients to achieve their important recovery milestones.

The Definition Of Care

A rehabilitation nurse is a Licensed Practical Nurse or Registered Nurse whose primary goal is to assist patients in recovering after illness, injury, or surgery. He or she works closely with doctors and other healthcare professionals to develop care plans that are conducive to optimal rehabilitation. Rehab nurses also oversee and execute these plans for patients during their stay.

At Santé our rehab nurses have extensive patient care experience in the post-acute facility arena. They also pursue continuing education in rehabilitation nursing to ensure their knowledge and skills are current and applicable to our patients’ varying needs.

A Rehab Nurse’s Role

Rehab nurses play a pivotal role in a patient’s recovery. They perform a broad range of duties and, as such, are essential to the patient’s experience in short-term rehab. Here are some the ways that rehab nurses contribute to a patient’s care:

  • Close monitoring of patient care plan execution
  • Early identification of pain and quick intervention
  • Evaluation of patient disposition and early intervention when the patient needs encouragement
  • Collaboration of care between caregivers (physical therapist, physician, CNAs, nurses, dieticians, etc.)
  • Communication with the patient’s family
  • Tracking the patient’s condition and progress
  • Direct, hands-on patient care

Because rehab nurses are responsible for so many aspects of patient’s care during their stay, patients often grow close to their rehab nurses and rely on them for updates and intervention. This is just one reason why Santé nurses are committed to going above and beyond and providing the best care possible for our patients.
