Patients and Families Need Advocates

In my searches for inspirational quotes, I watched a segment on CBS Sunday morning on the “National Disaster Search Dog Foundation,” founded by retired gym teacher Wilma Melville.

Please watch this video.

You Can’t Be Stopped by Hurdles

I had an ambition. You can’t be stopped by 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 hurdles. You can’t be stopped because it’s difficult. You can’t be stopped because people say “Why you doing that?” You can’t be stopped by anything.

You Should Be Retired

I wish I had a nickel for every person who asked me, “Why are you doing that, Karen? You should be retired.

Many Are Fearful and Overwhelmed

I am doing RN Patient Advocacy work because patients and families need this service.

So many are alone and fearful and overwhelmed using the healthcare system.

I am doing this work to train hundreds of nurses and caregivers to help patients and families navigate the healthcare system with less stress and more peace of mind.

And to change the healthcare system to become 100% patient centered.

Please, remember to tell your nurse that you value their service; in your own words.
