Not only at Harrodsburg Health and Rehabilitation are we blessed with a husband and wife pair of nurses, but we also have a Mother Daughter Duo too. Allison (left) was sick most of her childhood and required lots of medicine and shots. With all the pain she endured during this time, it inspired her to become a nurse and help others. Trish grew up watching her Mom work as nurse and knew she would follow in her Mother’s footsteps. Allison has been a nurse here for nearly ten years, and Trish came to us as soon as she passed her nursing boards.
Happy Nurse’s Week Allison and Trish!
