HealthSouth Cane Creek celebrates CRRNs
Posted: Wednesday, September 21, 2011 8:02 pm
Healthsouth Cane Creek recognizes its Certified Rehabilitation Registered Nurses (CRRNs) during National Rehabilitation Week, Sept. 18-24.
A nurse certified in rehabilitation is an expert in this practice area. CRRNs specialize in restoring abilities often taken for granted such as motor skills, walking and personal care. In a rehabilitation hospital setting, like at Healthsouth Cane Creek Rehabilitation Hospital, they help patients apply skills learned in therapy to activities of daily living, such as dressing, bathing and eating, while meeting their medical and safety needs. HealthSouth Cane Creek Rehabilitation Hospital proudly recognizes the following CRRNs for providing a higher level of rehabilitative care:
• Lindsey Rotger BSN, RN, CRRN
• Teresa Seymore BSN, RN, CRRN
• Sarah Patel BSN, RN, CRRN
• Wanda Neal BSN, RN, CRRN
• Monica Elling BSN, RN, CRRN
“Having the most knowledgeable and skilled nursing staff available is a priority at HealthSouth Cane Creek Rehabilitation Hospital,” said Eric Garrard, CEO at HealthSouth Cane Creek Rehabilitation Hospital. “National Rehabilitation Week gives us the chance to recognize that rehabilitation does lead to life changing effects, and CRRNs are right at the heart of the healing process.”
National Rehabilitation Week was established in 1976 to create awareness of people with disabilities and promote the benefits of rehabilitation.
In 1990, a presidential proclamation designated the third week of September as National Rehabilitation Week, which has grown to include more than 7,000 organizations.
