What physicians are saying about our nursing care
April 16, 2013
To Dominican Sisters Home Health Agency:
As a geriatrician at Denver Health, I have turned to Dominican Sisters countless times over the years for help with our patients. I just wanted to thank you and your incredible staff for all the excellent nursing care your agency has delivered to my many patients in need.
So many of our patients at Denver Health do not qualify for benefits that would allow them to access care assistance in their homes. And yet, without that help, there is no question that these patients suffer worse health outcomes and have more need for emergency department and inpatient hospitalization care. Your agency has come to the rescue for these patients; I cannot overstate how much this has helped many of our frail seniors.
Not only do your team members provide excellent nursing care, but they offer that critical human contact – a listening ear, a friendly visit, a compassionate care giver.
In addition, I always know, as a physician, that your team will communicate with our team, helping us work together to provide the best care possible for our mutual patients.
Thank you to you and your team for all your amazing care.
You are so appreciated by Denver Health Geriatrics.
