We hear a homecare and hospice nurse’s perspective on healthcare from Rachel Hammon on this episode of the Perspectives on Healthcare Podcast with Rob Oliver. Rachel is a member of Generation X. She joined the podcast from Texas where she is the Executive Director of the Texas Association of Homecare and Hospice. Previously, she was a nurse within the hospital setting as well as the home care setting. As you will hear in the interview, she is also a passionate advocate for patients and their right to receive care in the environment of their choosing.
Here are 3 things that stood out as Rachel Hammon gave us a homecare and hospice nurse’s perspective on healthcare:
- Homecare is extremely diverse. It represents a variety of care options, differing time lengths of treatment, and serves individuals of all ages, from children to seniors.
- Quality healthcare means timely access to care in an environment of the patient’s choosing, including the option to receive services within the home.
- The ability to provide quality care throughout the healthcare system has been challenged by the current labor market. Additionally, wages for home care workers and nurses can present a challenge.
