Bronx-Lebanon’s nurses are actively involved in transforming care delivery programs that are designed to improve the quality and safety of patient care for inpatients and outpatients.

As an integral part of the Bronx-Lebanon team, nurses are continually empowered to be actively involved in the unit based decision-making process, through the use of a shared governance model. Their wide-ranging responsibilities include direct care, providing patient/family education, and being a patient advocate, as well as directing unit resources and effectively communicating with physicians and support staff.
