Help Bring this Kiddo Home in Mankato!

Hello, nurses (and more specifically, nurses who love kids and are looking for a job in the Mankato area). If your dream job is to work with pediatric patients in an intensive care setting, this would be a great investment in your experience. Creating the ICU level of care in the home environment while focusing on one patient, with outstanding training and support, will be the recipe for your success.

Our greatest teachers are our clients and their families. Each journey tells a story…. here is one of them.

A bit of a backstory from their perspective:

We are currently seeking nurses to care for our 1 year old daughter, Lucy.
On February 11th, Lucy was airlifted from Mankato to the PICU at St. Marys in Rochester for respiratory failure. Before then, she was totally healthy and the extent of her medical history included pink eye and an ear infection. She was diagnosed with adenovirus 3, H. influenzae, and pneumonia. One month of ECMO and a tracheostomy later, we are ready to go home.

 

A little about our family:

I’m Brittany, Lucy’s mom. My husband, Lance, and I live a few minutes from MSU and Lucy is our only child. We are both funeral directors, (…but definitely, don’t live up to the stereotype). I love cooking, gardening, reading, sitting on my porch with a cup of really good coffee, and turning everything into a to-do list. Lance is a type one diabetic and former world traveler with a passion for good food (or fast food, he’s not that picky), watching movies in his man cave, and seasonal candles from Pier 1. He refuses to cancel cable because he’d miss out on the Nightly News, Wheel of Fortune, and the Today Show.

Our house is pet-free and smoke-free, and aside from a couple random junk drawers, we’re relatively clean and organized. Making our home a comfortable workspace is a priority. If that means parking in our garage, having a desk for charting, filling the cupboard with your favorite snacks, or hooking you up with our Netflix account, the possibilities are endless.
Of course, Lucy would be your number one focus. She is so easy to love and has won the hearts of everyone in the PICU. She loves to make a mess while eating, snuggle before naptime, go for stroller rides, and play with noisy toys.

 

If you (or a friend) are interested in knowing more about this opportunity, please contact: (877) 266-5795
 
We look forward to hearing from you!

Complex Skilled Home Care Nursing in Wisconsin

family with state representative

A big thank you to two of our families for opening their lives and sharing their perspective on a serious crisis facing families in Wisconsin. Access to Complex Skilled Home Care Nursing is important for so many reasons. The low reimbursement rates and nursing shortages have really hit Home Care. We want to show appreciation to Representative Dave Considine who came to listen and is interested in common sense solutions to this crisis in Wisconsin.
