Cornerstone VNA Celebrates National Nurses Week May 6-12

Cornerstone VNA is proud to Celebrate National Nurses Week, May 6-12. According to the American Nurses Association, it is a time for individuals in the community, employers, other health care professionals, community leaders, and nurses to recognize the work and positive impact of America’s 4 million registered nurses. Each year, the celebration ends on May 12, which is Florence Nightingale’s birthday, the founder of modern nursing in 1860. The theme of Nurses Week this year is “4 Million Reasons to Celebrate.”

Cornerstone VNA proudly celebrates their nurses and how they warm the hearts of many with their kindness and compassion. According to Jennifer Gullison RN, MSN, Chief Clinical Officer, “Cornerstone VNA has the most talented and hardest working nurses around!”  Gullison adds, “They put their heart and soul into every visit and teach patients the skills they needs to stay in their homes.” According to Bobi Mifsud, RN, BSN, COS-C, WCC, “Nursing is…my family, my love, my light.  I wouldn’t be happy doing anything else.” Jean Pomerleau, RN, CPHN adds, “Remember, nurturing the nurse is very important as well to provide best care practices.”

What truly sets the Cornerstone VNA nursing staff apart is their clinical specialties, offered to patients of all ages. Their nurses are trained in chronic care management and Alzheimer’s and Dementia “habilitation” therapy. Their specialty certifications include Wound, Ostomy and Incontinence Care, Diabetes Management and Education, Certified Intravenous Therapy, Maternal Wellness, Behavioral Health and Hospice. According to Julie Reynolds, RN, MS, Chief Executive Officer, “Our nursing team approaches each day receptive to advances in technology and new ideas for better efficiencies and patient outcomes.  We are proud to highlight them and their great work this week!”

In addition to recognizing National Nurses Week, Cornerstone VNA is proud to share that their Home Care and Hospice Care programs were recently reviewed by Medicare Surveyors and achieved a deficiency free survey. The surveyors visit home health and hospice agencies every three years to ensure they are in compliance with rules and regulations as well as providing great care to patients.  June Gallup RN, MS, HCS-D, COS-C, BCHH-C, COQS, Quality Improvement Director states, “We are very proud of our programs for achieving this important distinction and of the trusted care provided by our dedicated team of clinicians and leadership who made this possible.”
