“The nurse helps me with my medications every day. She is a very good nurse and is always so nice to me. She does a great job taking care of me if I get sick.”
— Tom, pre-vocational program
Lexington’s medical services include nursing services for residential and day programs, 24-hour on call nursing and nursing health counseling through our Article 16 Clinic. The nursing staff works closely with each program and families to monitor medical needs and current medications and treatments. They also compile and update individuals’ medical histories. Some sites that have individuals with complex health care needs have 24-hour LPN and RN staffing.
Lexington also contracts with physicians, psychiatrists and other health care practitioners to supplement and oversee the medical care for individuals in the residential program as well as in the Clinic.
