Penelope Perry
Professional Summary
I have worked with the interqual for Medicare and Medicaid regarding inpatient psych for Turning Point, helping them to catch up on their billing. I also work with interqual for each admission to the hospital and insurance calls.  I am a hard working person, a fast problem solver and for many years worked two jobs. I am taking online classes next semester, and until I graduate in 2 years. Keeping busy is important to me. I have been in nursing for over 30 years and have never been afraid to ask questions or learn something new. If we are short handed, I will do everything I can to get the job done. I have been told many times that I am good with people that most don't have the patience for. I get along well with the doctors that I work with. If something needs to be done and no one has time, I will jump in and help. I was taught that the patient comes first and think it is sad that new grads and the corporate hospitals have lost that belief.

I have attended a wound care seminar. I have worked in an Inpatient Psych facility in California, working with Mental health and behavior patients, addition and alcohol related illnesses. Some patients could be disruptive and all staff were required to take a psychiatric defense seminar. This was extremely helpful in learning to deal with aggressive behavior while keeping myself, other staff and especially the patient safe.I have a lot of experience working with patients with Alzheimer's, various forms of Dementia and some MR and Downs Syndrome. At one time, I was the director of Physical Therapy at a nursing home. I enjoy working with people and care what happens to them. I wrote the documentation education program for the hospital and also published an article in the national nursing journal LPN 2007 by AJN, called 'Document It.' In the same month the article came out, I published a short story as a Novella, called 'In The Case of Another.'
