A social workers really have been placed in
a position where we can take a leadership role in coordinating care and making children
our families really get what they need. We routinely give our phone numbers that may
be of assistance to family’s hotlines, food, information about housing, information about
getting quality jobs, information about getting quality jobs, getting transportation to and
from the hospital or they may need help with getting meals while they’re here. The therapeutic relationship with the social
worker and a client are very important. It’s nice to be the one person you know, for a
lot of our patients you know, the social worker showed that link the one person that assist
them and understand them. She cares, she listens to every word we said.
Not only that, she tries to help us solve the problem. Without her help physically,
mentally, financially, I wouldn’t get very far. I want to thank Nationwide Children’s
Hospital for providing this service and I’m so glad that they will be able to provide
for many other families. The ultimate goal for us is to restore family
functioning. The social workers here at Nationwide Children’s
Hospital in general have Masters Degrees and they’re all licensed by the State of Ohio.
Our service has benefits not only families but community as a whole because as we treat
families we also empower them. To get the message all about what’s needed so that are
community can be better and stronger.
