Centralized Nursing Support

We have launched a new staffing program that benefits residents, team members, and families in our community. Licensed nurses overseen by the Clinical Services team at the Touchmark central office are on-call to support your local nursing team between 7 pm and 7 am every day.

These team members are:

  • Trained in evaluative care as well as all Touchmark policies and procedures
  • Licensed in all states where Touchmark communities are located
  • Equipped to advise and provide direct recommendations for staff on-site when community nurses are unavailable
  • Available for phone and video consultations with team members and residents as needed
  • In regular communication with the Health Services team in each community
  • Compiling data and performing audits to improve quality assurance
  • Able to access each community’s EMAR system

Our goal is to provide more comprehensive nursing coverage for residents and reduce community team member stress. Community contacts/nurses remain a vital part of this process. Any after-hours support is conveyed to local nurses to assist with continuously coordinated care, and local nurses are available should the need arise.
