I am 60yo. Have been a nurse for 30 years and in advocating for myself and a couple people in my family it recently occurred to me that I have alot to offer. My current setting is inpt Psych. I have a diverse background including 10 years as a certified Hospice RN. I am very discouraged and concerned at what little we have time to advocate for our patients in the hospital. Some of them we have barely seen at the end of the day. All of us baby boomers had better have someone to advocate for us when the time comes and for some it is now. The healthcare maze is becoming more twisted.
For anyone out there who has started a service/business of this type could you direct me to Point A at which to start? Resource web sites, Refernce Books, etc.
I live in the Tampa Bay Fl area.
