On Call, For You Caregiver Feature

On Call, For You

“I work with an amazing team from incredibly varied backgrounds. We have nurses that have previously specialized in OB, Urgent Care, ED, Cardiology, Ambulatory/Clinic and Wound Care just to name a few. We each bring something specific and unique to the team, but I have never worked with such a well-balanced team. We each work on specific tasks throughout the day, but everyone is so helpful and each person is cross-trained to do every task. If one person is having difficult calls or situations, anyone else can jump in and help out, and they all do so willingly, often without being asked. They see the need and fill it.” When you’re experiencing a medical issue and you don’t know if you should schedule a primary care appointment, go to urgent care or head directly to the emergency room, triage call nurse Grace Hastey, RN, BSN, knows just what to ask: “We use proven protocols that we go through. We ask a lot of questions, and it’s very patient specific.”
