The Work We Do Clark Nursing and RehabJanuary 19, 2021
At Clark Nursing and Rehabilitation Center (CNRC) in Clark, NJ, 1199SEIU members care for a broad spectrum of patients. Caregivers at CNRC treat patients recovering from surgery and seniors needing long-term care. CNRC members also work on a ventilator management unit, where they treat patients unable to breathe on their own. COVID-19 has highlighted not only the importance of this work, but also the professionalism and dedication of those who do it. Clark 1199ers are among the tens of thousands of nursing home workers who everyday brave the pandemic to ensure the best care for their patients. In November, 1199 Magazine spent some socially-distant time with a group of nursing assistants from CNRC who shared their fears about a second wave, experience of the first, and a strong faith that has helped see them through the pandemic.
