Medication Errors injure 1.5 Million people annually...

Medication Errors injure 1.5 people annual. National Academies Aug. 31, 2013.

 It is difficult for working children to attend all the physician visits with parents, especially those last minute acute appointments. Trying to reach a physician to figure out exactly what was said at that appointment and what treatment plan changes have been made can be a time consuming and frustrating endeavor. Obtaining detailed information from parents who may be overwhelmed with the changes in their care may also prove difficult. Add to this the seemingly unending string of prescription add-ons and dosage changes; well, it can be a recipe for an easy medication mistake. Hospitalizations can happen very quickly with sudden illness or exacerbation of illness and just as quickly as treatment begins, discharge happens. Every doctor seeing that patient has probably adjusted medications, added medications and facilitated new treatment plans. How can a working child keep up and guarantee there are no mistakes made? How can a child rest assured their beloved parent is given quality care and the best treatment plan with no confusion? Nurse Concierge will provide quality of care at physician appointments or with hospital stays. There will be continued quality communication back to you as information is gathered and concise communication between treating physicians is facilitated. Streamlined, quality communication and care for my patients along with continued frequent assessments assures a higher level of care. A higher quality of care safeguards against medication and treatment errors that can prove fatal. Contact me today for an assessment and we can chat about how I can protect and advocate for your loved one. info@nurseconcierge.org
