BENNINGTON, VT—August 14, 2015—Centers for Living and Rehabilitation (CLR) has announced Neva-Jean Bullett, RN, as their new social worker for long-term care patients. Bullett has worked in health care since 1991 and began her career in the radiology department at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center (SVMC).
She continued to work at SVMC as a licensed practical nurse, as a discharge specialist, and as a registered nurse on the medical-surgical and telemetry units while she earned her education. Bullett received her nursing degree from Hudson Valley Community College in Troy, New York, and her Masters of Science in Nursing from Walden University in Minneapolis. Most recently Bullett consulted in the area of health care technology with Compuware Corporation in Lexington, Massachusetts.
“Our social worker is at the center of care for all of our long-term care patients,” said Suzanne Anair, the administrator of CLR. “It is a highly detailed and very emotional job, and Neva is perfectly suited for it.”
CLR offers sub-acute care for recovering from a surgery or a stroke and long-term care, for people who can no longer live alone. CLR received a deficiency-free rating on its last survey and is accredited by the Joint Commission. The facility features a newly remodeled restaurant-style dining room, rehabilitation seven days a week and on-site medical services. CLR specializes in accommodating patients who would like to pre-book a private suite before an upcoming procedure and families who would like to arrange short-term respite care.
“I enjoy getting to know patients and their families,” Bullett said. “In this position, I really get to form those family-like relationships and take care of patients over an extended time.”
The facility is located at 160 Hospital Drive, on the campus of Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington. For more information, call 802-447-1547.
