HCF funding will provide compensation for the registered nurse who provides oversight, direct service and training and education for more than 130 clients, their families and caregivers. Funding will also be used to cover a portion of the costs of medical gloves that are needed by the nurse and direct care staff. Over the course of the grant period, DPI’s nurse and medically trained staff will provide at least 100 health screenings, handle more than 5,350 medication administrations and perform approximately 14,700 medical and health-related procedures.
