VERSAILLES — Versailles Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center, a skilled nursing facility in Versailles, is honoring the vital role of its nursing assistants during the 44th annual National Nursing Assistants Week, June 17 through 24. This year’s theme is “Kindness in Action.”
“Nursing assistants are critical to the compassionate care we offer at Versailles,” said Kristy Earick, senior administrator of Versailles Rehab. “Day in and day out, our nursing assistants are deeply involved with resident care and perform essential roles that improve lives, especially during COVID-19’s challenges. They are true healthcare heroes.”
Versailles is gifting flower and garden tins with special succulent plants to the nursing assistants as part of its celebration of National Nursing Assistants Week. Additional special activities planned for the week include a pizza party, slushies, pretzel bar, walking taco bar, chocolate candy bar, and nacho bar. The center in May also honored frontline workers during National Nurses Week and National Skilled Nursing Care Week with a variety of appreciation happenings, including a barbeque and Indy 500-themed event.
