Guardian Nurses Healthcare Advocates, now in its 10 year of serving patients, is committed to improving our patients’ experiences with today’s healthcare system by providing advocacy services for people of all ages with acute injuries, chronic illnesses and ongoing health-related needs.
By communicating, intervening, and advocating on our clients’ behalf with care providers, insurers and support resources, Guardian Nurses makes it easier for clients to find their way safely and efficiently through the healthcare maze. And we go WITH YOU to physician appointments!
Our philosophy of championing patients’ rights to quality healthcare was inspired by the story of Florence Nightingale. The young nurse, working in overcrowded hospital wards during the Crimean War, noticed an extraordinarily high incidence of respiratory infections among the soldiers. She took the bold step of opening the ward windows, which resulted in a marked decrease in the infection rate. With that small intervention, the first nurse advocate saved countless lives.
In the spirit of The Lady with the Lamp, Guardian Nurses Healthcare Advocates now lights the way through the healthcare maze for thousands of patients and families.
