Repatriation Medical Management

President

I have over 25 years in the healthcare industry with an emphasis on critical care and emergency nursing. I have a degree in nursing and currently hold an RN license in the State of Florida, California, and New York. I attended Florida Risk Management Institute in 2003 and completed several advanced educational programs to improve my skills and knowledge including Legal Nurse Consultant. In 2013, I accepted the position as Medical Manager of Sky Nurses, a premier medical escort company. I have focused on risk mitigation and problem-solving so that the trips completed by Sky Nurses are without issue for the patient, family member, and clinician. In 2014, I developed the Medical Escort "Standards of Care" for Sky Nurses. In 2016, I revised the course and provided it to the general public. In December 2016, I started Repatriation Medical Management. Repatriation Medical Management provides case management, cost containment, education, and credentialing of clinicians worldwide.

Overview

The healthcare industry is rapidly expanding, and along with this expansion comes several rewarding career opportunities.  One healthcare related career is in the area of direct care aboard a commercial airline.  This career is known by several names, among them 'Commercial Medical Escort' 'Medical Escort', and 'Commercial Flight Nurse'.

A medical escort provides hands-on care to those who are unable to care for themselves or for individuals that require monitoring aboard a commercial airline.  To work as a medical escort, companies may require the clinician to have experience in critical or emergency care.  The company will then recommend the clinician to take a course in flight physiology.  Unfortunately, these courses are geared more toward the air ambulance than the commercial airline.
