Restorative Nursing

Mt Vernon Nursing and Rehab Center’s Restorative Nursing Program is a part of the continuum of care for each patient participating in our Rehabilitation Program. It involves the delivery of services by nursing personnel, designed to encourage and enable patients to be as independent as possible. In rehabilitation therapy, physical, occupational, and speech, therapists help patients to regain lost skills and function at higher levels throughout their course of treatment.

As patients begin to regain skills, restorative nursing begins. The goal is to help patients retain and improve the skills and abilities they regained through formal rehab therapy to prevent their decline. The Restorative Nursing Program may include nursing interventions that promote: range of motion, bed mobility, transfer training, walking, feeding, dressing and grooming, communication, splint or brace assistance, and amputation/prosthetic care. These individualized programs are care planned with measurable goals and specific techniques.
