We place tremendous value on the role of our nurses at Reasons and believe that our nursing services are in line with the highest standards of specialized care for those in need of 24-hour eating disorder treatment.
Our nursing program is directed by Corinne Elliott, RN, BSN, who has significant experience in eating disorder treatment as well as a strong background in psychology. Her philosophy that nurses are an integral part of the treatment team greatly influences the medical, psychiatric and nutritional aspect of our patient’s recovery. She brings an attitude of compassionate care and places great importance on providing patients with education and explanations about how their physical and emotional health are intimately connected.
We also offer a weekly nursing group covering a variety of topics such as the physical effects of stress and anxiety on the body and the medical complications of eating disorders. This education is paramount in the recovery process as it reminds our patients that the body, despite these serious complications, is also capable of healing due to the hard work they are doing every day in treatment.
Many patients have ongoing heath struggles as they transition from inpatient or residential to partial hospitalization and outpatient care. Our nursing staff is committed to helping by taking the time to listen to patients and assisting them with referrals and follow up appointments for medical and psychiatric care. Our patients can rely on the nursing staff to answer questions about medications and medical issues and to help with outside medical appointments and navigating often complex and overwhelming medical systems. Our nurses are committed to educate our patients in order to empower them to advocate for their own medical care in the future.
