Health Care Team
The Elsberry Health Care Center is dedicated to providing comprehensive nursing care and services that address the physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs of our residents. In order to achieve these goals, our health care team works cooperatively to plan, deliver and evaluate the care received by each resident.
The resident’s care needs are delivered by Registered and Licensed Practical Nurses and Certified Nurse Assistants (CNA’s.) Care is directed by Registered nurses specializing in care of the elderly. Training is offered by the facility to certify the Nurse Assistants with the Missouri Division of Health & Human Services. Nursing staff is available twenty-four hours a day for consultation with residents, families and staff.
Medical care is provided by local physicians who see the residents monthly. The attending physician directs medical care within the standards set by the Medical Director of Elsberry Health Care Center. Emergency medical care is available on a twenty-four hour basis.
