Rhonda Carlton, LPN
GSC & Dacier Employee of the Month
From the time she began her employment at GSC last May, Rhonda has been appreciated by her co-workers. Here are a few quotations from her nomination:
This nurse goes above and beyond her daily duties to assist the CNAs to aid in their work load. As shes given extra tasks, she takes them head on and NEVER complains. She has a calm and caring demeanor, and is great in challenging situations. She is very approachable and always willing to lend a helping hand unbegrudgingly. She shows exemplary work ethics and is very caring and patient.
Thank you, Rhonda, for good work done with the attitude that helps make Good Samaritan Center a happy place to live and to work.close

Our emphasis on rehabilitation restores each person to their highest level of functioning, and whenever possible, returns them to their home. We strive to enhance quality of life by providing engaging activities, exercise classes, special events and occasional dine-outs. We have an on-staff chaplain who ministers to residents and staff, and varied religious services are offered regularly. Artist series performances enrich lives with drama and musical presentations. Each member is treated with dignity and respect.
A medical doctor or nurse practitioner is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can be sure the high standards of physician services are provided under the watchful eye of our medical staff. Under the direction of the individual’s physician, a specialized team develops an individual plan of care for each person. The individual's needs are the focal point of all planning, with input from both the member and the family.
