About Kimberly

LPN with 6 years of experience in an acute care rehabilitation and long term care facility. CPR/BLS & AED trained and certified, IV certified and PICC & Midline line care trained, experience in wound dressing, wound vac, trach care, suctioning, foley cath care, respiratory breathing treatments, injections and medication pass. Having cared for my own mother for many years before her passing, and working as a secretary in the steel industry, I made a mid life turn and entered the field of nursing. I truly enjoy caring for my patients and even in the hospice environment, find joy in helping patients and their families to find comfort in a difficult time. At times there was nothing left for me to do but give comfort care and sit bedside and hold a hand...those moments touched me the most.
