Cuero’s Cynthia Strait Is THCA’s Director of Nursing of the Year

Posted: Updated:

(AUSTIN, Texas)Cynthia Strait, the longtime director of nursing at Cuero Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, is the Texas Health Care Association’s Director of Nursing of the Year for 2017.

 

Strait is largely responsible for the four-star facility’s success, and has served as director of nursing since it opened its doors 25 years ago. Not once in its 25-year history has Cuero Nursing and Rehabilitation Center received a substandard quality of care deficiency.

 

Cynthia provides the care and devotion that we would all want our loved ones to receive. She has made a positive impact on thousands of lives and it is a true testament to her commitment to her residents knowing she’s been at Cuero Nursing and Rehab since they opened,” said Kevin Warren, president and CEO of the Texas Health Care Association. “She has such a positive influence on so many, both personally and professionally. Families trust Cynthia because of her passion and devotion and we are proud to recognize her example with this award.”

 

Strait has guided her team through not just one hurricane, but several, and she recently led her team’s effort to care for 31 evacuees from Hurricane Harvey.

 

Strait has also developed a weekly log that monitors several quality measures, including pressure ulcers, weight loss, falls, restraints, return to acute, urinary tract infections, antipsychotic drug use and pain.

 

Strait is selfless to both employees and residents, whether it’s buying everyone Christmas gifts, or routinely staying extra hours to make sure all residents are getting the excellent care they deserve. She strives to empower each employee with the skills needed to feel confident and successful in the care they are providing.

 

Strait was recognized recently in Houston at the Texas Health Care Association’s 67th Annual Convention and Trade Show. She was selected by a panel of long term care clinicians from across the state.
