About Our Department

Our staff consists of resource nurses, registered nurses and licensed nursing assistants, clinical nurse leaders, and clinical nurse managers. We are part of a multidisciplinary team of physicians, physician assistants, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, case managers, social workers, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, and pastoral care who work together to plan and guide our patients to a successful recovery. Through our care delivery model, we collaborate with these other disciplines to continue to advance the care of our patients. Our care delivery framework is the Elliot Model of Nursing, which supports four basic tenets: Teamwork, Continuity, Competence, and Caring.

The Fuller Unit’s vision is to make your stay here at the Elliot Hospital as pleasant as possible and to assist patients and their families in achieving the highest level of physical and emotional health. We focus on quality care, evidence-based care, leveraging technology, and patient/family satisfaction. We encourage patients and families to be active partners in their care. Through this vision, we can produce exceptional outcomes for patients and families through safety, quality, and caring services.
