Tina Mahoney has years of experience as a nurse in a variety of settings, most recently she has been servicing the community as a school nurse. A member of the Baby Boomer Generation, Tina Mahoney is in Arizona.
I apologize for the banging and clanging that you hear throughout the interview. About two minutes in, my microphone became detached from the desktop, and I had to hold it in my hands for the remainder of the interview. I tried to edit out as much as possible, but sometimes it happens while I am talking. My apologies!
Here are 3 things that stood out as Tina Mahoney gave us a school nurse’s perspective on healthcare:
• The stereotypical view of a school nurse is “Band-Aids and crackers and we send you on your way.” The current reality is that they work with a variety of children, many of whom have complex medical needs.
• By having a school nurse in the building, students who may have been otherwise homebound can now attend school in person.
• Quality healthcare is about access to care and transparent communication! It also includes wraparound services for every family.
