Shriners Hospitals for Children — Honolulu provides the highest quality care for orthopaedic and neuromusculoskeletal disorders and conditions.
RN Care Manager (Current Employee) – Honolulu, HI – July 12, 2018
Staff members are committed to improving the lives of children in Hawaii and the Pacific region, and are specialized in bone, joint, muscle and sports injuries.
The hospital is a state-of-the-art facility that provides Hawaii’s children with the best orthopaedic care, neurodevelopmental care, fracture clinic, surgery, physical therapy, occupational therapy, radiology, orthotics and prosthetics workshop and other ancillary services. The hospital is colorful, kid-friendly and designed to place patients and families at ease with the aloha spirit.
Daily I am responsible for providing assessments, planning, interventions and follow-up for patients and family members. I proactively address potential or actual clinical and/or psychosocial needs identified through screening to ensure level of care and health status transitions are safe, seamless, and coordinated. I collaborate with a multidisciplinary team in regards to discharge planning prior to patient’s arrival and throughout entire hospitalization. I advocated for patients and families to ensure their needs and desires are addressed in a timely matter.
I enjoy working with patients and families of different backgrounds and cultures and I am rewarded when I see my patients overcome the physical challenges they had when they came to our hospital.
The hardest part of my job is meeting the needs of my patients when there was a financial barrier. I am always grateful when I was able to help my patient overcome these barriers.
