Caregiver Spotlight - April 2021

Diana Hill of FFHC Pasco

Diana Hill is a phenomenal nurse with a genuine and unique gift of care that is obvious to anyone who meets her. When considering amongst our wonderful caregivers for this month’s spotlight, she was the unanimous choice. Diana has worked with multiple patients and their families in the most challenging of situations, and she epitomizes and embodies the word “Caregiver” like no one else. She volunteers for assignments that most would understandably hesitate to take on. Whether we are bringing home from the hospital a trach and vent dependent newborn or we have a last-minute shift to fill, Diana is more often than not the first call we make. Thank you, Diana, for representing the spirit of Family First Homecare in all that you do.

How to Advocate for Your Child’s Healthcare

Chances are you can remember a time when the health care system did not seem to take your concerns seriously or provided care in a way that hardly seemed “caring”. After all, the “system” is huge, so it is not always easy for one patient or parent to be heard. If this situation arises, what do you do? The answer has to do with your unique style of dealing with conflict, your trust in the health care system, and the degree of inadequate treatment. Remember: you are your child’s voice.
