The Jennie B. Richmond Nursing Home (JBR) has announced new additions to its nursing team as of November 2018.
Registered nurse Charlene Cole, of Sardinia, has taken on the role of director of nursing. She has worked in intensive care, dialysis care, cardiac care and med-surgical settings.

Cole will have responsibilities for managing nursing staff and coordinating resident care. She joined JBR as assistant director of nursing earlier this year.
Jessica Jayes, of West Seneca, will be the JBR’s admissions and marketing coordinator.

Jayes has a strong background in healthcare marketing, in addition to education in mental health and counseling. This new role will manage the nursing home’s outreach to healthcare facilities and will be a vital part of the admissions process.
Registered nurse Brandie Boyd, of East Concord, has joined JBR as assistant director of nursing.

Boyd has experience in acute care and subacute rehabilitation nursing. She will work closely with Cole and JBR Administrator Carole Francis to coordinate nursing activities on the east and west wings.

“We’re excited to begin 2019 with this nursing team in place,” Francis said. “We’re moving ahead with a series of plans related to marketing and our clinical care that will continue our focus on resident comfort and quality of life.”
