I would like Lindsay Crozier, LVN, Corpus Christi, to be recognized for her care of her patient, Robert Oman. She consistently provided an excellent level of care and frequently went above and beyond what was expected. When I admitted this patient, it quickly became apparent that he was going to need more than just wound care. Lindsay quickly developed a rapport with the family and MD. The MD was so impressed with the wound care and overall care that we have received 2 more patients from him. The patient rapidly declined and developed more wounds. Lindsay consistently interfaced with me and the MD. I was always informed about new wounds and issues. She would frequently offer suggestions for wound care and other needs and I felt very comfortable with her assessments and suggestions. As the patient continued to decline, hospice became involved. Unfortunately for the patient and family, the hospice case manager did not seem very interested in meeting this patient’s needs. Lindsay was a patient advocate and made sure that hospice provided the supplies and medications that were needed. As Mr. Oman’s last days approached, it was Lindsay, not hospice, who spoke to the family about the seriousness of his condition and was finally able to get them to agree to a DNR. She was even willing to go to the library and copy an out of hospital DNR form. At this point I told her that it was not her job and hospice nurse was contacted. Because of Lindsay’s efforts, this patient died peacefully. This is just one shining example of the care that Lindsay provides to all her patients. She consistently provides excellent care. It is obvious that she cares about her patients and loves what she does. I am very confident about leaving any of my patients in her care.

A Journey of Professional Growth with NNR
I am blessed to work with an agency that is focused on quality homecare. I believe in leading by example, hard work (which always pays off), holding to family values and thanking God for all He has blesses me with everyday.
Hello my name is Crissy Reyes. I was born and raised in the RGV. I received my Bachelors and Master degrees in Communication Science Disorders at TAMUK in 2001. I have been employed by NNR since the spring of 2006.
In 2006 I started working with NNR as a field SLP in the outlining areas. Soon after that, my service area grew and I was leading 4 SLPAs in the outlying service areas. The newly added service team was able to treat children with needs in areas as far as 2 hours away from the Corpus Christi office.
In 2011 I was asked to be the Thera-py Director for Corpus Christi team, and a year later I assisted the RGV staff as an Interim Therapy Director. Our teams in CC and RGV are amazing. These are clinicians who love their jobs. This is evident by the commitment and success they have with their patients.
My most recent role with NNR CC is Administrator. Because of our strong clinical nursing staff, therapy staff and administrative staff, I am excited to see what the future will bring to NNR CC.
I have now been with NNR for 8 years and it is surely my home away from home and a second family. I am blessed to work with an agency that is focused on quality homecare. I believe in leading by example, hard work (which always pays off), holding to family values and thanking God for all He has blesses me with everyday.
On a personal note, I have been married for 10 years to Tony Reyes. We have a beautiful family of three; Matthew, 21 years; Taylor Cae, 7 years; and Twister Cade, 2 years.
My interests include hunting, fishing, golf, but most of all, watching my daughter play softball.

Great Wound Care
Keep everything the same, our wounds are looking great!
Patient’s daughter, B.M. states that we are all amazing. Her parents loved Delinda (National Nursing & Rehab Nurse). Delinda is on top of it and Amy (Physical Therapist) and Melissa (Speech Therapist) are doing an amazing job. They are all very professional and wonderful in this department.
Very pleased with the professionalism of the National Nursing & Rehab staff.
