Anne Engelhard

Infection Control Preventionist
The Commons employee

Anne Engelhard’s 40-year career path went from nurse’s aide to LPN to being an RN board certified in Gerontology – all in long-term care. She has worked as an Infection Preventionist for 20 years. When her Director of Nursing Services went to work at The Commons, Anne quickly followed. “Knowing her energy, professionalism, knowledge, and support of my role, I did not hesitate to apply when opportunity knocked,” she says. “She is one of the most outstanding, professional directors I have had the privilege to work for.”

She says her challenge is to keep residents safe from illness by promoting the best in prevention techniques and educating them to keep them well, using a team approach and “never losing sight of residents being our number one priority.”

She says her favorite part of her role at The Commons is “The challenge of infectious bugs! How they affect associates, residents, and the medical profession, and what we do as professionals to combat them to keep everyone safe and healthy.”

Working with the senior residents is the other part of her job she enjoys. “They have such great experiences to share,” she says. “There is so much to learn from them!”
