National Nurses Week has just concluded, and during the month of May, we celebrate nurses everywhere, but especially home health care nurses like those who work for RVNA. For more than a century, our nurses have provided needed care at home for people of all ages and diagnoses. They work tirelessly, visiting up to six patients each day in towns throughout western Connecticut. Home health care nurses interact with patients, their families and physicians.
They travel in all kinds of weather to reach the people who need their skilled nursing services. In addition to providing hands-on care and treatment, the nurses must document all they do using laptops they carry with them and technology that requires ongoing education.
