Meet Our Infusion Center Nurses

Sheree Rugenstein, Infusion Nurse at Newark-Wayne Community HospitalSheree Rugenstein, RN, Infusion Nurse, BARD Certified PICC

“Because my patients are often here from four to six hours or more, I try to use that time to educate them about their conditions and to help make their lives a little easier. This comes from working in the medical field for many years; listening is so important. I am also in contact with their physicians and can act as a liaison between these patients and their doctors. Besides the medical services we provide, we try to make coming here pleasant and even fun.”

Sheree has been a nurse for 12 years and is currently working on her BSN at Roberts Wesleyan College. Sheree is specially trained to care for patients with PICCs. She also has extensive nursing experience in acute care, primary care, endoscopy and the Infusion Center.


Becky Lankford, RN
