Tune in to Voice of America on Monday, May 18 at 1PM ET to hear CipherHealth’s Chief Nursing Officer, Lisa Romano, talk about how her 30+ year nursing career has led her to “play a hero’s role in the COVID-19 crisis”.
From the show’s host Leanne Meier, BSN, RN:
Lisa Romano, CNO of Cipherhealth, my guest for May 18, 2020 and I met in the Fall of 2019, long before anyone was even thinking or a novel coronavirus. When we were actually able to connect for the show, it became apparent that Lisa’s career led her to the right place, right time to play a hero’s role in the COVID-19 crisis. She had been working with hospitals for years to create streamlined IT processes in rooming, moving/discharging, cleaning, and re-rooming patients. Little did she know, having this knowledge, as well as newer work freeing nurses from needing to report results of tests & discharge instructions to patients, put her hospitals in a perfect position to quickly realize the size and spread of the coronavirus. This data allowed them to make plans to prepare for the coming coronavirus. Lisa Romano brings over 30 years of clinical experience (CCU), hospital administration of patient flow and transfer center, and IT strategy to her role. Join us for this amazing episode.
About the “Once a Nurse, Always a Nurse” podcast:
There are SO many issues in healthcare that impact medical/nursing providers and patients alike, but each of them may not see the connections to themselves. This show will be a forum for nurses to tell stories about their own experiences, whether professional or family-focused and guests will inspire conversation on health and nursing-related topics. Issues will vary from communication in healthcare to current issues, such as nurse/patient ratios, dealing with conflict, how to create cooperative workplaces, speed-reading people, as nursing strikes and much more. Government policies are creating a major shift for all healthcare providers as well as their patients. We, as nurses, will be creating the future healthcare paradigms as we move forward, becoming a crucial part of the solutions. “Once a Nurse, Always a Nurse: Exploring the World of Nursing” is broadcast live every Monday at 1 PM ET, and 10 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica’s Health and Wellness Channel.
