Other team members include licensed practical nurses and nursing assistants. If you have questions about your care, just ask a member of your nursing team any time. CRMH is designated a Magnet Hospital for nursing, which is the gold standard for nursing care.
Other Clinical Team Members
In addition to physicians and nurses, the clinical team includes numerous other professionals including physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurse anesthetists, physical therapists, respiratory therapists, occupational therapists, radiology technicians and pharmacists.

If you have a question about who’s providing your care, their licensure, training or role, please ask your nurse or physician.
Social work Services/Nurse Case Management Services
Our Social Work Services staff and nurse case managers can help you, your physician, and your family with problems that often accompany illness, such as finding a nursing home, planning for home care, or locating equipment and other community resources. These services accept referrals from physicians, nursing staff, patients, families and agencies.
