Providing RN oversight on every case from day one
Carmin Bissin, RN
How long have you been a Nurse?
After a lot of hard work as a CNA, I graduated with my Associates Degree in Nursing from Cuesta Community College in San Luis Obispo, California. I have been a Nurse since 1988. My nursing career began as a CNA at a senior care facility where I worked for almost eight years. It was there I developed a love for working with seniors and helping them remain at home.
What experience do you bring to BrightStar Care®?
The most valuable experience was with my own parents as they went through the aging process. I became the person my siblings would turn to for guidance on our parent’s care and a safety. Both my parents would look to me, to navigate the twists and turns of aging in their home. I soon realized I needed help and that’s how I learned about BrightStar. It was the high standard of care given to my Dad and then to my Mom by the BrightStar staff that I use as the Director of Nursing to plan the care for our clients.
What aspect of your job are you most passionate about?
My passion as the DON at BrightStar is to be an advocate for our patients. Whether this has to do with an appointment that needs to be made or a change in their condition, I am their advocate. In the home care environment, I am the eyes and ears for out of town family or for someone unable to speak.
I provide A Higher Standard of Care for our BrightStar Care® clients by...
During our client reassessments, I look for subtle changes in their condition, a simple sign or symptom that could challenge their ability to remain at home safe and happy. I use my experience as a nurse and a daughter to advocate for our client’s so they can remain in their home safe and sound for as long as they desire.
