Care and compassion in action.
The nursing care at Noyes is fueled by the compassion and clinical expertise of over 150 staff members including RNs (Registered Professional Nurses), LPNs (Licensed Practical Nurses), CNAs (Certified Nurse Aides) and STs (Surgical Technicians).
The RN is responsible for the coordination of patient care and is often the direct caregiver. The RN assesses the patient’s response to medication, treatment and interventions and communicates that response to the physician. LPNs, CNAs and STs are vital members of the patient care team who work under the supervision of the RNs.
Nursing care is provided using evidence based standards, i.e. care is modeled after research tested and proven practices with demonstrated positive clinical outcomes.
Safety and quality are at the forefront of every interaction with patients. In addition to continuing education for the nursing staff, safety and quality initiatives are supported by technology when appropriate.
As a patient, you can expect the nursing staff to manage your immediate symptoms including control of pain, to educate you and your family regarding your illness and your medications and to assist in planning for your discharge.
In addition to photo ID tags, the staff wear color coded scrubs in all areas, except the OR and the Birthing Center, to help patients and family know the skill of their caregiver. RNs wear navy scrubs, LPNs wear maroon scrubs and CNAs wear green scrubs.
