Charge Nurse

Charge Nurse: A charge nurse is a registered nurse (RN) or a licensed practical nurse (LPN) who is responsible for caring for patients who require extended medical care. Our residents may have injuries that require a prolonged period for recovery, or they may have a disability or illness. The charge nurse is responsible for overseeing the C.N.A.’s, completing treatments, and skin assessments.  The charge nurse may administer medications to patients, coordinate patient care with all departments and ensure that patients receive appropriate medical care in a safe environment.
