Pleasant View, owned and operated by the Green County government, is looking for more nurses, which administrator Terry Nelson says is one way to help Pleasant View save money. The home currently operates at a deficit, which has led the Green County Board of Supervisors to have a referendum Oct. 6 asking voters to allow county government to collect more property taxes to fund the nursing home.
MONROE - It won't be done this year, or even maybe next year, but Pleasant View Nursing Home Administrator Terry Nelson believes she can turn around the home's financial situation.Nelson, who has been either a director of nursing or a nursing home administrator for the past 30 years, became administrator at the Green County nursing home in August. She's already started to look for ways to save money and put the nursing home on solid financial ground.
