Happy Nurses Week 2012

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

According the Merriam-Webster online dictionary the definition of best is as follows:

1: excelling all others

I’m not exaggerating when I say that PHS truly has the best nurses in the business. Hands down. Just ask any one of our patient families, any of our kiddos, any of the healthcare professionals we partner with day in and out. PHS nurses have skill, compassion, heart, expertise and the list could go on forever, but I think you get the idea. PHS has nurses in our Infusion department, Private Duty Nursing department as well as in our Respiratory Therapy department. In celebration of National Nurses Week we wanted to ask a few of our nurses (well, the ones that didn’t run away as soon as they saw the camera) what is their favorite part about being a nurse. Why are they so passionate, and just why are they the BEST?! We were able to track a few down.

Check out the video below to hear from:

  1. Christine Olson, RN, Home Infusion Therapy Nurse
  2. Jodi Bancks, BSN, PDNS Case Manager
  3. Jill Wall, RN, BSN, CRNI, Home Infusion Therapy Nurse
  4. Steven Moehrle, RN, BSN, PDNS Case Manager
  5. Joel Skog, RN, Home Infusion Therapy Nurse
  6. Doreen Carson, Home Infusion Therapy Nurse
  7. Jade Turner, RN, PDNS Case Manager

Do you know a PHS nurse? What do you think makes them the best?

Behind the scenes at the PHS Private Duty Nursing shoot

Friday, October 21st, 2011

Now that we have been running with our Private Duty Nursing Service (PDNS) for almost a year, we decided it was time to get out in the home of one of our PDNS families and see just how we are doing. The response was fantastic and we had a great day of shooting with Audra, twins JoeVon and JoVonna, both PHS patients and PHS clinicians, Mary- Infusion Nurse, Jade- PDNS Preceptor and Ashley and Courtney- JoeVon’s PDNS Field Nurses. In addition to shooting out at a patients home, we wanted to hear from the PHS PDNS staff as well, so we spent some time interviewing our own staff on just how the service was progressing.

As we work to pull together the video that was shot that day, we thought it might be fun to give you all a little behind-the-scenes look at the chaos,the fun and heartwarming time that we had on our day of shooting. I hope you enjoy the video as much as we enjoyed putting it together.

You can also check out some of the photos from the day at out facebook page here.

Are you a patient with PHS PDNS? We’d love to hear ow everything is going for you!
