Misty Urban has been a friend of my parents for a very long time, so when I found out I needed to interview a health care professional I knew exactly who to go to. Misty is currently employed at ViaQuest Home Health and Hospice. Getting to where she is now was not easy, in fact, she said “While I took pre-requisites for nursing, which took seven LONG years, because I took one class at a time until I had to go full-time for my RN.” While taking her pre-requisite courses she was also working at the Somerset Dialysis Center and worked there for almost 9 years. Before that Misty held jobs at Somerset Ambulance for 11 years, and also at the Somerset Hospital Emergency Department as a Registrar/technician. Misty told me that she was a candy-striper at the Somerset Hospital when she was thirteen years old, which is what made her love the medical field. When she turned sixteen, she took classes at the Somerset Vo-Tech to become an Emergency Medical Technician. “At 16, I was also a fireman too. I became the first female in the Somerset Fire Department and the first to obtain my firefighter 1 status” Misty said. Misty received her nursing degree and then went on a medical mission trip to Paraguay. When she returned home from her trip she started to work at The McGinley house- a home for intellectually disabled adults. Within the next couple of weeks she will begin her training in hospice with ViaQuest. “I love the medical field, I 've been doing it forever, and I love the variety and change with each patient and their needs. Everyone is different and I have to know how to adjust for that”.
As I said previously, Misty currently works at ViaQuest Home Health and in Hospice as a registered nurse. Since Misty works in Home Health, her vehi...

...arned a lot about what she does on a day to day basis. I really enjoyed listening to her story and hearing about all that she does for people in Home Health Care. I personally work at a hospital only in the dietary department, but I interact with the patients’ daily. I love knowing that everything I see being done at work is offered to patients’ in their home. As a result of my interview I think one of the most important things that I learned is the role that the insurance companies play in how Home Health Care is provided. If an insurance company does not see a referral from a doctor, it is likely Home Health will not be provided with the help of the insurance company. I also learned that Home Health is a more affordable option to an inpatient hospitalization. This is becoming a growing area in the Healthcare field, because of disabilities and the aging population.
