St. Catherine’s Manor of Washington Court House, a long-term care provider part of HCF Management, Inc., has welcomed Jackie Wilson to its care team as the facility’s director of nursing.
This announcement comes after the retirement of Robin Lane, former director of nursing.
After a successful 25 years with HCF Management, the staff and residents sent their best wishes and deepest thanks with Robin during a celebration on her last day, Sept. 30. With that comes new beginnings and a warm welcome for Jackie.
“We are so excited to have Jackie in this leadership role and we have full confidence that she will do great things here,” said facility administrator, Sue Thomas.
Wilson has been an RN for five years with most of her career focused in the emergency department. She obtained her associate degree in nursing from Southern State Community College in 2015 and recently obtained her bachelor’s degree from Ohio University. She is a local to Washington Court House, along with her husband Nick and two children, Charlee and Cayden.
“I am very excited to be the director of nursing here at St. Catherine’s of Washington Court House as this is where I began my nursing career and learned most of my professional characteristics! This is a great team and I look forward to meeting and interacting with everyone including staff, residents and families,” said Wilson.
The director of nursing ensures that the facility is safe and meets the needs of patients and their families. They make sure there is adequate staff for the facility and that staff is well trained to meet the safety and health of patients. They oversee budgeting, staffing, training and ongoing education. Directors of nursing supervise their staff for performance, giving feedback on an ongoing basis. They enforce local, state and federal laws in a healthcare facility.
