Nursing

At The Ponce, our dedicated nursing staff of RNs, LPNs, and Certified Nursing Assistants work as a team to provide the highest quality care.  This team works to promote a more hopeful attitude and helps to identify the goals of each resident and their families. 

After a thorough evaluation, a plan of care is created to address the specific needs of each individual.  Our nurses truly understand the importance of communication with family members as well as our therapists, social workers, dieticians and activities department to fully maximize the overall outcome for each resident.

In addition to the astute skills of our Director and Assistant Director of Nursing, we also have a full-time Wound Care Nurse along with a full-time Nurse Educator.  These professionals provide leadership to ensure the entire nursing department is clinically competent, compassionate, and attentive.
