Providing RN oversight on every case from day one
Daniel Fajardo, M.D., Director of Nursing
How long have you been a Nurse?
I have been a nurse here in the USA with an Illinois license since 2006. I’ve worked in skilled nursing facilities and home health agencies as a supervisor and director and am familiar with the delivery of skilled nursing services in both settings as well as other services that are needed to treat clients comprehensively.
What experience do you bring to BrightStar Care®?
I have a 2 BS degrees, one in biology and nursing. I also have an MD and learned much and thoroughly enjoyed my practice in Manilla for 10 years. I also taught nursing subjects at a university. I come from a family of doctors and was involved in running a hospital owned by my in-laws in Manila. Managing and training nurses/medical staff is nothing new to me and I’m proud to be able to bring management experience along with in-depth clinical acumen to my position at BrightStar Care. I am fluent in English which allows me to explain and answer patient and caregiver questions well.
What aspect of your job are you most passionate about?
One of my passions is the timely delivery of needed and appropriate, high quality services to clients/patients who are encountering difficulties at a particular stage of their lives. My objective is to enlighten them by providing knowledge and information regarding their health so in order make the best choices/decisions appropriate to their personal condition.
I am Making More Possible for our BrightStar Care® clients by...
Empowering them with guidance and information so their quality of life can be maintained and hopefully improved. Supervision, training and support are given to our staff to ensure seamless delivery of services in whatever situation and environment they find themselves. I firmly believe in maintaining dignity and comfort for as long as possible and integral to this is being able to stay at home and receive care where people are most comfortable.
How do you expect to grow the BrightStar business?
I expect to grow our market presence, share, and awareness of the exceptional, high quality and compassionate services that we provide. Another important goal is increasing the reach of our skilled nursing services in viable markets that we haven’t as yet tapped. There’s great potential there.
