As a member of the Client Services Team, the RSN contributes to the care of eligible individuals who have severe developmental disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy, Mental Retardation, Autism, Spina Bifida, or Neurological Impairments. The nurse ensures that the client's medical needs and the quality of care are met in all settings whether in the community, the home, a day program, a hospital or a nursing home.
The Regional Staff Nurse is the medical resource person for the client, the staff, administration and case managers. RSNs respond to consultations and referrals from case managers, skill sponsors, clients, staff and others. They may provide case management services, pre-admission screening, or environmental evaluations. Working with the other members of the team, the nurses provide a diversity of services.
