Year of the Nurse blog, Jennifer Suhd-Brondstatter: ‘We’re the safety net for the patient’

Jennifer Suhd-Brondstatter

The role of nurses continues to evolve, and UC Davis Health’s Jennifer Suhd-Brondstatter says medication management is now an important part of that work. In addition to serving as the “eyes and ears for the doctors,” nurses also actively monitor the patient’s medication – checking every order and advocating for the patient’s interests as a navigator and liaison.

Hear her go in-depth on this vital function performed by nurses, in her own words.

In celebration of Florence Nightingale's 200th birthday, 2020 is the Year of the Nurse. Beginning on National Nurses Week (May 6-12) and continuing throughout the year, a special blog will feature the stories, memories and motivations of UC Davis Health nurses.

Hear their words, and get to know why and how they invest such heart, passion, expertise and commitment in their life-changing work.
