National Nurses Week is May 6th - 12th.  Every day, nurses step forward embracing new technologies, resolving emerging issues, and accepting ever-changing roles in their profession.  WBRC Nurses provide monitoring of medical issues, education about disease management such as diabetes, nutrition monitoring and education, support for smoking cessation and weight control, education for medication management, use of the talking glucometer, blood pressure machine, and script talk as well as personal assistance and encouragement with activities of daily living. Rehabilitation nursing is well versed in managing a wide variety of rehabilitation-related disabilities such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and amputation, as well as vision related deficits.  The WBRC nursing team provides a safe and comfortable environment to ensure the continuity of the rehabilitation program.  WBRC would like to express our deep gratitude to our Nursing staff, today and every day, for their excellent care of WBRC patients.
