Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn. – Benjamin Franklin

If you’ve been in or near the Therapy Department recently or over the last several weeks, you may have noticed some new faces. We have students from various schools at various points of their education joining us on clinical rotations to further their knowledge and skills, working towards careers in occupational and physical therapy.

Kasey Kappel, a student of occupational therapy, joined us from College of St. Mary in Omaha to complete her final three month rotation prior to taking her board certified licensure exam. Kwynn Gracey, OTR/L, was her clinical instructor.

Sarah Prohaska, a student physical therapist assistant from Northeast Community College in Norfolk, has just recently completed a six week rotation with one remaining rotation before being eligible for taking her board certified licensure exam. Kari Kenner, PTA, was her clinical instructor.

Jordan Bussinger, a student physical therapist, comes to us from the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, to complete her first rotation for a total of eight weeks with one remaining year of school and rotations. Seth Holt, ATC, MSPT, and Robby France, DPT, were her clinical instructors.

We hope each of these ladies enjoyed their time with us and learned as much as we did during their time with us! We appreciate their hard work, as well as caring for and treating each of our patients with dignity and respect. We wish them each the best as they move forward with their education and towards their careers!

A special thanks to all of our wonderful host families for opening their homes up to our students, especially to Chet & Marjorie Wilkins and Roger & Rhonda Lechtenberg for most recently hosting two of our students during their time with us at BCH. We appreciate you!

This week, 6-12 May, is National Nurses Week. Brown County Hospital and the Ainsworth Family Clinic want to thank all of our nurses for everything they do, everyday, for us, our community and most importantly our patients. Our nurses are dedicated, compassionate, caring and knowledgeable professionals. There's not a hospital in the country that could function without them. Another thing people forget is that hospitals are a 24/7 operation, and it's the nurses that are here, caring for our patients every day of the year. During bad weather, they are here, sometimes staying at the hospital for a coujple of days at a time until the other shifts can get here, and all the while, providing quality care for our patients. In a rural hospital, our nurses are required to perform multiple roles, from floor nurses, to surgery nurses, ER nurse, ICU nurse, and so much more. So to our nurses and all the nurses across the country, we thank you, with all our hearts for the care you give to us, our families and communities.
