When you look for guidance and professional advice about your Health care, Nurse Advocate understands the health care system and how it works. Summer Cares Professional Nurse Advocate is available for guidance and assistance when you need an advocate to lighten your way and see things more clearly to assist you in making the best decision about your care every step of the way.
An RN Patient Advocate is a highly qualified clinical RN with many years’ experience in skilled Health Care and long-term care, providing you with the knowledge and support to help you navigate through the system and offer patient care that builds a partnership between the patient and the heath care team.
Your health care team includes your physician, family nurse practitioner, home health agency, family, nurse advocate and most importantly, you.
We advocate on your behalf with your doctors, the hospital, all medical personnel working with you; this helps to prevent errors.
We provide health and wellness coaching- we teach you and your family about the relationship of your current illness to your medical history. A more in-depth understanding can lead to better health overall.
We will collect a medical history and perform a comprehensive assessment including medication review. This will give the nurse a better understanding of your current health issues and if more needs to be addressed.
We can provide wellness checks and can follow you after discharge from hospital to ensure that you have the appropriate professional care in place and communicate between all your doctors and therapists involved in your care.
We can provide you resources, ideas, solutions, suggestions to all your questions and provide you the guidance and peace of mind that someone is looking out for you.
We do not make healthcare choices for you or your family diagnosis ailments, order treatments or replace your physician in any way.
We do not provide your total care in the hospital. Your Advocate is a complement to the hospital staff, not a replacement for it.
We do not replace your Social Worker, Physical Therapist or Nutritionist. Your RN Patient Advocate will work cooperatively with all members of your healthcare team to ensure your best possible treatment.
