Inpatient

During a hospital stay there is much activity with the number of staff coming and going. Mistakes and mishaps can happen; it’s the human element. We offer suggestions that will reduce potential errors and infections, as well as boost the immune system. Click book now to set an appointment.

Outpatient

Just got home from the Ambulatory Surgery Center, Hospital, or Extended Rehab facility and wonder what to do next?  We will review your discharge orders, explain in layman’s terms what the physician has written, offer tips for speedy recovery, and assess at-home needs.   

Medical Maze

Managing our healthcare system is a challenge to most of us. The team at Virtual Healing will assist with navigating the system while keeping you on track with current or pending tests.

Education

Resources and Education will be recommended to further your understanding of your current medical condition(s).  Encouraging families to participate will aid with comprehension and support.

Maureen

Led by Maureen Healy Family Nurse Practitioner, MSN

Maureen was a Registered Nurse for over twenty-five years, working in emergency rooms, intensive care units, same day surgeries, and specialty areas.  Teaching patients and their families how to become active participants in their personal recovery was a natural part of her nursing.  She continues to advocate for patient safety and engagement, as well as preventing illness, infection, and rehospitalization.  Maureen became a licensed Nurse Practitioner in 2014.  Since this time, she has continued to work for the same company evaluating and treating both acute and chronic conditions.  

Now, she has expanded her role as an independent healthcare educator focusing on offering phone-based support to people managing their health needs at home.  Virtual Healing’s patients receive detailed, compassionate, and personalized follow up care, have fewer infections, and avoid emergency room visits. This holistic approach embraces a growing trend to empower patients to take more control over their health, reducing their chance of developing a chronic condition, and of falling into the confusion of polypharmacy/polymedication. The advantages of our services not only improve patients’ health, but also help to contain costs which benefits the community at large.

License

Maureen is a Licensed Family Nurse Practitioner (APRN 9375742).
