Know the Nurses: Amanda Groh

If you have a home care nurse in your home, you already know what an important part of your life they become. Today in Know the Nurses, we’re introducing you to one of our home care nurses and preceptors, Amanda Groh, RN, who has been with PHS since February 2013. We already know these nurses provide comprehensive, round-the-clock care for patients in their homes every day, but here are a few fun facts about Amanda you might not know.
