Here is what her nominator had to say.

Rachel has always been an advocate for our residents and is passionate about providing evidenced-based practice. She has recently stepped up to the plate and will have her first student this fall. Change is always going to be present in our industry and Rachel is a problem solver, cool under pressure. She has demonstrated leadership in accepting change and taking the opportunity to be innovative in our rehab delivery model. I am thankful to have Rachel as a team member!

Rachel has a wonderful personality that our patients adore, she builds great rapport with them, and only has their best interests at heart. She advocates for our patients and residents to receives the best care and provides education for our nursing staff and family members to help our patient’s recovery journey and increase their quality of life.

Rachel is always going out of her way to provide patients with adaptions to increase their mobility and independence. Rachel has stepped up to the plate, taking on a large number of patients on caseload and demonstrating leadership within the rehab team. She always tries her best to bring encouragement and positive energy!

Here is what her nominator had to say.

This therapist is particularly skilled at: Paying close attention to every detail of a patient’s medical history, current situational factors, and changes effecting each patient and/or their families.

I have seen this therapist “go the extra mile” by: She passionately advocates for all of her patients. She makes detailed recommendations for the best possible outcomes and safest possible discharges.

Our mission is to set the standard in rehabilitation for successful aging by delivering the best of science with the art of caring. This therapist expresses and emulates the Infinity Rehab mission in the following manner: Denisa clearly communicates the needs of all her patients.
