Providing RN oversight on every case from day one
Brenda Needham, BSN, RN, DON
How long have you been a Nurse?
I have served as a registered nurse for over 7 years and have received a bachelor’s degree from University of Michigan with honors. My area of experience includes home health care, hospital, primary care-care manager and skilled nursing facility environment, with a focus on the geriatric population.
What experience do you bring to BrightStar Care®?
I have gained valuable experience over the last 10 years working alongside talented and skilled health care professionals. From doing work as a community volunteer, certified nursing assistant, Physician Super User Trainer of Cerner software in hospitals, to serving the most vulnerable people of Africa and finally as a Registered Nurse. I remain educated on evidence based best practice through memberships in highly recognized journals such as American Journal of Nursing, Infusion Nursing Society and Nursing Management. I am delighted to have a second career “of passion” as a healthcare professional.
What aspect of your job are you most passionate about?
Providing supportive services for vulnerable populations, advocating, and providing quality home care services through skilled nursing care and a supportive team of people who share equal values and concerns for others. I am also passionate about adhering to my core values as they are important principles that not only grow personal satisfaction but central to effective patient centered care. Making BrightStar a good fit because their core values align with my own.
I am Making More Possible for our BrightStar Care® clients by...
Consistently set up individuals for success through education, training and developing processes that support the framework for quality care. That includes delivering continuity of care by collaborating with all healthcare delivery services. Finally, listening to the needs of others, and exercise best practices.
