Nurses on 9 Harbert have the opportunity to become proficient in many nursing skills, including  IV placement, NG/TP tube placement, CVL care, gastrostomy tube care, ostomy care, peritoneal dialysis, and insulin administration.  We pride ourselves in delivering expert care to our patients so that they may achieve the best outcomes possible.
