As part of our Nurses Week celebration, we want to introduce you to our newest nurse, Lauren Guzman. Lauren is our Clinical Supervisor working with our Manager of Nursing, Terry Ritter, to manage our CNAs (Certified Nurse Aides) and support our nursing services. She’s also coordinating our Foot Clinics, which are coming back after a year of hiatus this spring!
A new leader recently assumed the helm at Mount Evans Home Health & Hospice. She’s a mountain resident of Idaho Springs, a nurse and an incredibly competent health care administrator with a wealth of experience. Her name is Keri Jaeger. Although her name may be new to the broader mountain community, she’s not new to Mount Evans.
From the beginning of this pandemic, Mount Evans nurses’ greatest concern wasn’t for themselves, it was for their patients. They worried about how to continue providing not just medical care, but the extraordinary care that our nurses are known for, it’s what we like to refer to as “loving our patients up.”
At Mount Evans Home Health Care & Hospice, the health and safety of our staff and patients is our highest priority. We are taking the potential spread of COVID-19 in our service area seriously. We are following all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) guidelines as we work with our patients and their families.
Depending on whom you ask, the baby boom generation either popularized self-indulgence or helped create a more egalitarian America. But whether rotten or visionary, the generation born between 1946 and 1964 isn’t a kid anymore, and its final chapter promises changes and challenges to match any that have come before.
