In the following presentation include: 1. Geopolitical (Health Perception/Management) 2. Financial (nutritional/metabolic) 3. Barriers and challenges (Cognitive/Perceptual)

1. How do you define your role as a Community Health Provider? How long have you been in this role?

Caring for patient’s that are underserved and have different medical needs. Caring for patient’s from all different backgrounds-those with and without insurance, young adult (18 years) to the very elderly, patients that are educated and those that are not. 3 years

2. What Community population do you care for?

The Adult Urgent Care Clinic sees Hispanics (Spanish speaking), Vietnamese (non-English), indigent, non-documented patient’s from Mexico and some Swahili patient’s (non-English).
Homeless patients, patient’s that can’t afford their medicine and don’t have resources/funds that are easily accessible to them. Patient’s that have mental health issues with addictions to alcohol or drugs. Many young adults come in for STD check and treatment. Patients come in for simple wound checks; these patients’ may be diabetic and many times are not taking their medications because of lack of money. “We see patient’s that are “normal”, they have insurance and do things for their health, like take their medicines and exercise.” Hospital staff (nurses, doctors, care tech’s, housekeepers, administrators).

3. What are some of the barriers you come across while caring for patient’s in your Community?

Patients’ don’t have money or resources for their medications. In the clinic we are limited on the diagnostic tests that can be ordered and most patients’ don’t have a clinic for follow up results. Order the least amount for best patient outcome so that it keeps the patient cost low.
Patients may not have enough food, housing or transportation to get around.

4. How do you deal with found barriers to ensure that patient’s get the best care?
Order the least amount blood work or diagnostic test for best patient outcome so that it keeps the patient cost low. Compare the price of medication at different pharmacies. Prescribe medications that are the least expensive and give them the discount card for drug coupons. Give the community resource packet that is in the clinic. (Community resource packet has the number to patient financial service for the hospital. Patients can often be placed on a sliding payment scale or a payment plan depending on their income. Dental resources-various clinics that offer services at a lower cost. Department of Health – locations throughout the city (we’ll tell patient’s that they can get free vaccinations, STDS checks here), other clinics for uninsured patients where they can see a doctor for things such as physical exams, EKG’s and referral s are made from there to specialty areas if indicated-a flat fee is charged-$ 40.00 for one of them.) The clinic staff brings in clothing or simple snacks for patients (peanut butter crackers, box juices) Specific clinic that see uninsured diabetic patients. Patients are told about Road Runner Food Bank (to obtain food), Health Care for the Homeless (free medical service and medications are given sometimes).

5. What do you find the most frustrating as a Community Health Provider?

That some patient’s come in every week for the same thing and use the Urgent Care like a primary care clinic.

6. How do you care for people of a different culture?

Treat all patient’s the same-give the best patient care. Use the interpreter services for language barriers.

7. What do you think about our health care systems, is it fair? Why or why not?

Do not think it is fair, some people pay more for insurance and others don’t pay anything.
