Online PR News – 03-July-2020 – Scottsdale, AZ – With nearly 55,000 COVID cases in Maricopa County as of today, a local medical provider pivots her clinical practice to keep her most vulnerable patients safe during the pandemic.
Dr. Kirsten Turkington is a Nurse Practitioner with over 20 years of experience. For the past five years, she’s provided on call home health services. In March 2020 that changed. She pivoted her practice, offering home delivery of supplies to keep patients safe.
“Many of my clients are elderly or vulnerable. I make sure my most at risk clients stay home to minimize illness and complications. By adapting my services to specific community needs, I can keep more people healthy”.
Dr. Turkington, an experienced nurse and clinical expert, recognized the rapidly changing health environment and increasing health risks with her patients. While others struggled, she quickly and easily adapted clinical services. She offered telephone visits and online evaluations. She fielded phone calls from multiple local and out of state families looking for help and guidance with local family members.
Dr. Turkington did what was necessary to keep them home, including food, paper towel and toilet paper delivery services. She even offered to pick up medical supplies and help with transportation. When a series of local fires erupted in the Cave Creek area, she was one of the first to volunteer by bringing 20 cases of water to the volunteer checkpoint.
Dr. Turkington highlights the importance of community engagement and a foundation of caring among neighbors. Turkington Medical represents Dr. Turkington's primary focus: Quality healthcare and clinical expertise.
