Nurses Week Spotlight: April Manuel
To celebrate National Nurses Week (May 6-12), we are honoring all of our exceptional Sunrise nurses and the outstanding care they provide within our communities each day. One of these extraordinary nurses, April Manuel, was nominated by her colleagues to receive a blog spotlight highlighting her determination to provide consistent, excellent care to all of her residents.
“It is an honor and a pleasure to work alongside April.” – Alexia Carballo, Resident Care Director, Sunrise of Marlboro, NJ
April, a wellness nurse at Sunrise of Marlboro, spends her days monitoring the condition of each resident. She plays an integral role in ensuring that all residents’ service plans are up-to-date and inclusive of any changes in condition. She is adept at using the latest technology, and quickly immerses herself in any new computer systems rolled out within the community. April is part of the BeSafe Committee and delegates safe practices to our medication care managers.
“To me, nursing means providing quality care while ensuring safety, preserving dignity and loving what you do,” April said. “Nursing has its many challenges that can only teach and empower me at the end of the day. I believe nursing is to care unconditionally with a soft heart, thick skin and sharp mind.”
The entire Sunrise family benefits from nurses like April. Please join us in thanking her for all that she does for the Sunrise of Marlboro community. Click here to learn more about the nursing team at Sunrise and meet the rest of our 2016 Nurses Week Finalists.
