CASE STUDY: Meet the Caller and the Nurse
On a Wednesday evening, Joel* called his after-hours nurse line and reached TriageLogic nurse Beth. Joel is 39 years old and has Type 1 diabetes. He was calling because his insulin pump was going to run out of insulin at 10 pm. He told Beth that he no longer wanted to use the insulin pump and wished to return to using vials and syringes.
Beth was able to reach Joel’s on-call physician and obtain a new prescription. However, Joel confided that his insurance would not cover one of the prescribed insulins. Luckily, our nurses do not stop until they find a solution for their patient. Beth connected with Joel’s doctor again to find an alternative medication that would be covered.
Joel called Beth again and at this point, he began to panic. The pharmacy stated that the medication that his doctor prescribed was not in stock. Joel also disclosed on his third call that he was blind and would not be able to pick up his insulin that night.
By using her years of experience as a nurse, Beth was able to ease his anxiety in order to find a solution. She called the pharmacy and explained Joel’s situation. The pharmacy was able to track down his medication and arranged to have it delivered to him that night so that he would not go without it.
