Discover the Benefits of Feeling Safe, Supported and Informed

Experience Peace of Mind

It’s hard to navigate the healthcare system and make decisions when you or a loved one are experiencing serious health care problems. At Truly Yours RN I will empower you to make informed medical decisions, so you stay in control of your care. I help provide peace of mind as you navigate the complex and fragmented healthcare system. You will be more informed and comfortable with the decisions you are making for your care.

Patient safety experts at Johns Hopkins University suggest that medical errors are the third-leading cause of death within the U.S., causing over 250,000 deaths per year.

Poor communication is one of the leading causes for medical errors and poor patient outcomes according to patient safety experts CRICO Strategies. Having great two-way communication with your doctors and nurses is imperative for positive patient outcomes. Of equal importance is communication between the members of the healthcare team regarding your care. This is where a nurse patient advocate can help. I will collaborate with your doctors and nurses to be sure that your healthcare team are all on the same page regarding your care. My goal during these times is to get you back to wellness and home as soon as possible.

Hospital Stay

Advocating for Safe Care

During your hospital stay, I provide in-person advocacy for you. I am a liaison between you and your healthcare team. When you are admitted to the hospital, you will see multiple members of your healthcare team daily. The Hospitalist will quarterback all your care and takes the lead medical position. There may also be specialists that are a part of your care and often times you will see these doctors briefly once per day. Each doctor is forming a plan of action to help diagnose or treat you. These quick visits can feel overwhelming and leave you with many questions. I know the questions to ask. I am relentless in seeking informed, efficient, and above all, safe care. I oversee your entire hospital stay so you can focus on healing knowing you are receiving the best care. Additionally, I will provide a personal care plan for you that will:

  • Empower you to make the best healthcare decisions
  • Accompany you to inpatient procedures
  • Assess and assure quality, efficient and safe care
  • Provide knowledgeable explanations for understanding diagnosis, treatment, tests, results and plan of care
  • Keep your family updated on your stay if desired

Hospital stays are charged on an hourly or daily rate depending on your needs. Keep in mind that I am usually with you 2-3 hours per day especially in the morning when most of the health care decisions are being made. Doctors and specialists will usually see you in the morning hours, if possible. I try to be with you when these visits occur. If not, I can review your care with the nurses and or doctors to understand the plan for the day. If needed, I can stay and go to inpatient procedures with you. I can also check on you in the afternoon to see how you are doing and if you have any concerns.
