    Nursing Quality of Care Guidelines

    in Health

    In this week’s iNurse Episode we are discussing: Quality of care guidelines, featuring Nurse Reezena Malaska. You may remember Reezena as one of our guest speakers from our iNurse episode:Reducing Nurse Fatigue. If you haven’t had the chance to tune in, you can find it on our website at: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/inurseradio


    Nurse Reezena’s passion and enthusiasm for the field of healthcare has led her to become a Registered Nurse, achieve a Master’s of Science in Nursing, and became certified as a Critical Care Registered Nurse. In addition to practicing nursing, she also dedicates her time to teach and inspire Nurse Students as an adjunct professor at Notre Dame College and Cuyahoga Community College.


    Today we will discuss Quality of Care Guidelines, which has become a popular discussion amongst medical professionals, and it is a topic that the American Nurses Association has addressed – hoping to improve patient safety by promoting quality in nursing care and nurses' work lives.

    In Home Skilled Nursing: What You May Not Know


    Making decisions about an aging loved one’s care is never easy. If you’re considering in-home skilled nursing, here’s what you may not know.


    In-Home Skilled Nursing Care Doesn’t Have to Be Full Time
    Many of the best skilled nursing agencies offer part time services. That’s peace of mind if you’re looking for help but prefer to carry out primary care responsibilities on your own.


    In-Home Skilled Nursing Professionals: A Great Support System
    Having a medically trained nurse at home makes it possible to take a well-deserved break to recharge. 


    Independence Is Encouraged When Appropriate
    Most in-home skilled nursing services encourage guided independence. For families, knowing that a loved one is safe, comfortable and allowed to thrive in a familiar environment is invaluable.

    After a dozen years of doing standup comedy, she’s been racking up awards for her humorous, insightful one-woman shows.The SF Guardian called her “Goofy, messy, and fun!” The LA Theater Review says she’s “Charming, likable, and funny!” Sold-out hit shows and extended runs have garnered her a number of awards.  Her solo shows include, The Oy of Sex, Eat, Pray, Laugh!, The Punchline, and The Latest Show on Earth Circus. She’s also creator of The Spiritual Comedy Festival, and written a humorous number-one best-selling book on Amazon.
