Our Medical Staff
The physician is responsible for directing the resident’s care while in the hospital. The physician oversees treatments and medications and coordinates special procedures with other physicians and ancillary services.
Our Nursing Staff
The Nursing Department at Seton Coastside has a feeling of family. Many of our staff live on the Coast and are committed to the community.
- The Director of Nursing Services and the Nurse Manager of Administrative Services provide leadership and encourage the staff to greater excellence and innovation by promoting high standards of care. A strong orientation and continuing education program assures that the nursing staff, at all levels, maintains a high level of knowledge and skill.
- The Assessment Coordinator assists in assuring that the Center complies with patient care regulations. The coordinator leads the Interdisciplinary Care Conference providing residents, their families and staff an opportunity to review the care plan and participate with the resident’s care. Because of the intimate size of the facility, the Infection Control Coordinator is able to work closely with all of the staff, in maintaining a healthy work environment and home for the residents.
Emergency and Acute Care
Of incredible benefit to our residents, Seton Coastside provides a standby Emergency Department, with a physician on site 24 hours a day. A registered nurse works on every shift as well as our highly skilled Administrative Nurse Supervisor. If a resident needs emergency treatment or a higher level of care, they may be spared the discomfort and trauma of an ambulance ride to a tertiary facility. Our residents are often able to be treated in the Emergency Department, or spend a short stay in the Acute Care Unit without leaving the facility.
All of the nursing staff, registered nurses, licensed vocational nurses and certified nursing assistants are committed to and demonstrate a high degree of dedication, devotion and compassion to our residents. The staff goes far beyond simply giving medications and treatments; they actively listen to the needs of our residents and make every effort to meet them. Every day our residents find a smile, a hug or a gentle touch to make their lives a little better.
Social workers are professionals who help residents and families in a time of crisis. They help make arrangements for non-medical care after residents leave the hospital and can connect residents, families and friends with community resources and referrals.
