Grossman lands new position at hospital
...
Kim Grossman works in his new office at Danville Regional Medical Center, where he now serves as director of nursing quality resource management.
...
DANVILLE - Kim Grossman, the current director of nursing at Danville Regional Medical Center, will be changing jobs in the near future.
He has been named the director of nursing quality resource management at the hospital, a job that is still being organized, he said.
It's a long title that involves a lot of responsibility toward patient care at the hospital as he works with the approximately 300 nurses employed there.
"I will be looking at how to improve the nursing processes and care," Grossman said, in describing his new job."My major goal is to create an environment where nurses can provide the best nursing care to patients."
That goal reflects the reason why he originally went into medicine, graduating from nursing school in 1980.
Grossman was recruited to come work at what was then known as Danville Memorial Hospital about 18 years ago, a move that he said challenged his life.
"I came from a large metropolitan area, and it was my first time in a sole community provider hospital," he said.
...
Grossman came to the hospital as the director of nursing, then took responsibility for case management.Next, he served as the director of home health and then back to director of nursing.
Although he won't assume his new position until his replacement is found, he said his new position will be much like his position as director of nursing.
"I feel if people have an opportunity and place to work where they feel they can make the best contribution, they will do it," he said.
...
Grossman said he walks around and talks to the nurses during times when he won't bother them.
"I like to visit the break room and talk to them at their desks," he said."Shift change is also a good time to catch them."
He also finds that patients catch him as he is out in the community, which he calls "the neat thing about practicing nursing in this community."
"The people who come to the hospital know you, and when people are pleased, they tell you," he said."It's not unusual to go to the grocery store and have people stop you."
He laughed and admitted that the converse is also true, and he hears when things aren't so great.
Grossman is married to a Spring Garden native, Marilyn, who is a nurse practitioner at Danville ENT.He has three children, and his oldest, a son, is currently serving in Iraq.
