Nursing Services through Key Human Services in Connecticut are dedicated to serving people with developmental disabilities and have been recognized by the Connecticut Department of Developmental Services for providing quality nursing services. Our comprehensive nursing services are specially designed to address the unique needs of individuals with developmental disabilities. With many years of experience, our senior professionals have achieved national certification in the field of developmental disabilities nursing. We employ highly skilled nurses who are available to contract to other agencies that have residential programs for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Our nurses attend regular staff training and education programs to improve our agency’s ability to provide quality services.
All of our nurses are experienced with state licensing requirements, including quarterly and annual nursing reporting. Our nurses also provide the essential guidelines and policies needed to comply with state regulations governing residential facilities: a Nursing Delegation Policy, Medication Administration Policy, sanction procedures, training protocols, Kardex systems and much more. These complex materials are available to other agencies through state-approved computer software and can be easily customized for each agency’s use.
Our nurses are also available through RN on Call, an after hours nursing telephone consultation services.
