Professional medical services are administered by licensed nurses 24 hours a day and 24 hour care with all activities of daily living is provided by certified nursing assistants. Further support for all nursing care giving staff is provided 24/7 by an administrative nurse. All care and treatments are ordered and supervised by Woodhaven’s osteopathic physican or medical doctor, both of whom visit weekly. Additional professional medical services are provided by the nurse practitioner who visits three times each week. The nurse practitioner also serves as a liaison between staff, the physician and interested family members, enhancing and facilitating prompt communication and coordination of health care services.
