Providing RN oversight on every case from day one
Grace Chou, RN
How long have you been a Nurse?
I have been a nurse for 20 years and counting. I graduated in 1995 as a LVN from San Francisco City College and then in 1998 as a RN. I did my undergraduate work at San Francisco State University.
What experience do you bring to BrightStar Care®?
My entire nursing career has been in the outpatient setting working as a triage nurse in Internal Medicine, OB/GYN, but mostly in Urgent Care. My previous experience prior to BrightStar Care was in hospice for 2 years, and then 5 years managing a startup Medicare home health agency where I was the Branch Manager. The home health agency quickly blossomed to a thriving agency where I managed the day to day operations and worked very closely with the staff to ensure that patient safety and satisfaction were carried out. I was also involved with the care of the patients in every aspect. In addition, I also worked as a nurse case manager for Genex, a worker’s compensation company. I now utilize all of the valuable skills that I learned from my Internal Medicine, Urgent Care, home health agency, and worker’s compensation with our clients at BrightStar Care. I have been the Director of Nursing at BrightStar Care of Roseville for over six years.
What aspect of your job are you most passionate about?
I am most passionate about being able to help our clients stay home and help ensure they have a good quality of life. In addition, I am also passionate about problem solving client’s issues.
