Director of Nursing
She sets her standard high, then shows the way to making it achievable.
In her career as a director of nursing at skilled-care facilities, registered nurse Tammy Guile has helped staffs work their way up to five-star ratings from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, then been a part of two flawless reviews from the Illinois Department of Public Health. A native of Moline now living in Galesburg, Tammy came to Generations at Rock Island in 2017.
“I have pretty high expectations, because I think the residents deserve quality care,” she said.
At Generations at Rock Island, the director of nursing oversees the front-line care of each resident and the staff who administers it. Tammy assesses the quality of programs and makes improvements where possible, while walking rounds daily herself.
Tammy came to Generations after teaching health-occupation classes at nearby high schools and working on the staff at the University of Iowa’s oncology department. Her passion for nursing began in her childhood, while her grandfather battled prostate cancer and her grandmother dealt with brain cancer.
“I took care of my grandparents when they were ill, and loved spending time with them,” she said.
But in addition to her recipe for successes, Tammy also brought to Rock Island her recipes for cupcakes. The director of nursing is renowned in the building’s kitchens for her Snicker’s and Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup goodies. The treats are not just a fun snack — they’re one small part of livening up residents’ days, which is one small part of helping each of them feel well.
“That’s the great thing about nursing: There’s always a new challenge, and new clients to care for,” Tammy said. “You take one project at a time.”
