At the heart of every Encompass Health nurse is a commitment to provide the best rehabilitation experience possible for our patients and their families. Empowering patient outcomes, rehabilitation nurses see the patient as a whole, focusing on helping the patient and family participate in the therapies they need to prepare for life after the hospital. Nurses at Encompass Health complete assessments of patients daily covering each body system to ensure the patient is maintaining a healing trajectory. Administering medications, treatments and interventions to keep patients safe from harm are key components of the nursing staff’s role.
While no two days are alike, our nurses are motivated by making a difference, and at Encompass Health hospitals, that difference is made during every shift.
