Corydon, July 2, 2013: Wayne County Hospital is pleased to announce the promotion of Tasha Bailey, RN, BSN as Case Manager. In her new position, Tasha works closely with patients and their families evaluating the appropriate level of care and helping to plan for the eventual transition back home or to an alternative care facility.

A 2003 graduate of Wayne Community High School, Tasha was awarded her Bachelor of Science, Nursing from the University of Phoenix in 2012, and earned her Associates Degree in Nursing from Indian Hills Community College.

Tasha chose nursing as a career partly due to the history of nursing in her family; her grandmother was a nurse for many years, and several other family members have been involved in the healthcare field, as well. Patient interaction and having the ability to help someone in their time of need is extremely gratifying. Tasha’s nursing experience includes working as an OB delivery nurse, a charge nurse, med/surg nurse and an emergency room nurse.

“I’m excited about this position and opportunities it presents. There is a lot to learn and I enjoy taking on new challenges. Being able to help patients and their families understand the complicated process of a hospital stay and preparing them for discharge is tremendously rewarding,” commented Tasha Bailey, RN, BSN.

Tasha and the case management team, including a physician, closely monitors the patient’s hospital stay in order to provide optimal care delivered in the most efficient and cost-effective manner. The Case Manager has to follow insurance regulations and strict federal and state laws which require continuous monitoring of treatment and length of stay to ensure the level of care is appropriate to the illness/condition.

Outside of work Tasha enjoys spending time with her family; husband, Charles, and their 3 children; Madeline 6, McKenna 4 and Drake 7 months. They make their home in Corydon and like to take walks, go fishing at the farm and be with family and friends.
