Happy Holidays from Nursing!
Please remember if bringing gifts to label them and to check with nursing or dietary for appropriate food gifts. Remember extra salt and sugar may impact residents with heart conditions or diabetes. Some residents may not be able to safely eat chewy or crunchy items. Talk with us about better choices. This is the perfect time to restock personal hygiene items or give new clothing. Fun socks, light weight blankets, or picture books make nice gifts. An important safety reminder-Please alert nursing staff anytime you will be taking a resident out of the building and when you return. Also, please utilize the sign out sheet at the main door. Any paperwork or new information from an appointment should be given to a nurse promptly.
