– I feel like I am one of the luckiest physicians
in Denver or Colorado, especially because of where
I work and what I get to do, and I get to work with an incredible team of professionals who really
get what it’s all about in terms of the stress
that families are under and the needs of those families. The people that I get
to work with are some of the best people that I’ve ever known, both personally and professionally, and they bring that caring to the work that they do on a daily basis in terms of supporting families and in terms of listening to families. We have a team here that is not there to dictate to families what they must do. We have a team of people here who spend a lot of time wanting to know what the dynamics are of the family, of the prior living situation, and we take a very comprehensive approach to what the needs of the patient are in the context of who they are and where they live and how they live to try and make the best
discharge plan that we can, and as a physician, I feel very grateful for the fact that I have the resources to work with here to be able to provide that level of service to my patients and their families.
