I AM NOT AN ATTORNEY; I am a nurse. If anyone seeks a NURSE'S VIEW with an "old school" approach to patient care, I will go to great lengths to assist them. I was trained that mistakes can be avoided by a cautious approach to patient care. To prevent any errors the patient must come first. I CANNOT provide legal advice, but if I cannot guide a client in the right direction I will search out an answer for them. I have a strong background in pharmacology along with a working knowledge of hospitals,namely medical surgical units, including cardiac units; also outpatient internal medicine clinics; I have maintained excellent working relationships with physicians, and this can prevent many simple errors. I have some limited experience in Nursing Homes and rehab units where, unfortunately, many medical and healthcare errors occur due to under-staffing. I own many reference books which are up-to-date on procedures, treatments and pharmaceuticals (drugs). NOTE: I do not possess any operating room experience.
