During that time, some of her duties included obtaining patient history and physicals, interpreting laboratory values and diagnostics, suturing, wound care, pharmacological management, and problem-focused care.
“Carly was a great asset to Lourdes Urgent Care as a student nurse practitioner, and we are thrilled that she is joining us full time,” said Dr. Kevin Taylor, Lourdes Medical Director. “She has a great bedside manner and treats patients with respect, dignity, and compassion. She will be a great provider for Lourdes and our community.”
