Jersey City, NJ, September 7, 2017 – Alaris Health is pleased to announce that Laura Crotty has been named Director of Nursing (DON) of Alaris Health at Boulevard East, where she will oversee a team of approximately 50 nurses and staff.

Laura joined Alaris Health in 2008 as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) and worked as a floor nurse. It quickly became apparent to everyone who worked and interacted with her that she would rapidly rise to meet her ambitions of being a Registered Nurse (RN). She worked diligently, going to school in the evening to get her Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) while working as a nurse during the day.

Not only did she receive her RN license and BSN, she did so with Honors. Upon graduating, she accepted a position as Unit Manager and again persevered, returning to school to continue her education and receive her Master of Science in Nursing (MSN). She was interested in learning the Minimum Data Set (MDS), a federally mandated tool that is used to provide comprehensive assessments of residents in Medicaid or Medicare certified nursing homes.

For the past two years, Laura has assisted the director of nursing and conducted MDS’s. When the DON position became available, there was one person whom everyone knew would smoothly transition into the important role: Laura.

And so it is with great pleasure that Alaris Health at Boulevard East begins a new chapter with Laura leading the nursing team. Laura said, “My goal is to ensure that all residents receive the quality care they deserve and the staff are appreciated and feel supported.”
