Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
Patient advocacy is at the heart of nursing. I became a nurse to give the client and their family a voice in the decision making process to protect their physical and mental health. Prior to becoming a patient advocate, I worked in a large healthcare system that was fragmented, convoluted and ripe for the potential of medical errors. My healthcare roles within my nursing career included hospital, skilled home care, insurance case management, inpatient and outpatient care management, diabetes, durable medical equipment, and private duty. I advocated for my mother and brother throughout my career. I actively prevented medical errors and miscommunication at every step of the way. If you know the system, you can find a path through the constant obstacles that healthcare imposes on you to get the healthcare quality you deserve.
