New nurse stations that were recently constructed at our Atlanta location, and that will soon be constructed at our Wesley Woods location, are helping to create an environment that is better equipped to focus on the needs of residents and give them greater access to staff. Generous grants from the R. Howard Dobbs, Jr. Foundation and the Luther & Susie Harrison Foundation are funding the new nurse stations.
The new and more visually-appealing stations replace old ones that were patterned after institutional hospital stations with towering structures that created barriers between staff and residents. The new design allows residents, especially those in wheelchairs, to better communicate with staff, and gives staff increased situational awareness so that they can quickly respond to resident needs.
The new stations also offer a more comfortable atmosphere and enable staff to work more efficiently.
