Being Thankful for the Work of Riggs Staff – Part 1

The role of nursing in the Austen Riggs Center treatment model.Every day, the staff at Riggs work to realize this psychiatric hospital and residential treatment center’s stated mission: “to improve the lives of emotionally troubled and ‘treatment-resistant’ patients by providing quality and cost-effective treatment. The focus throughout the Center’s programs is on the importance of human relationships and the responsibility and dignity of the individual.”

Earlier this year, Riggs held a blog competition among staff members where we asked them to write about the topic: “How My Work Makes a Difference.” Over the next few weeks, we’re going to feature several pieces authored by staff members across disciplines, speaking about the ways in which their individual work complements and contributes to the overall treatment of our patients. Below, you will find two of the pieces.  

We are grateful to have such a dedicated, knowledgeable and talented staff and are thankful for the contributions they make on a daily basis to the Riggs community.
