Mistey, RN, CBN, Bariatric Nurse Coordinator
I joined the weight loss team at My Bariatric Solutions in July 2011 as a nurse coordinator. I coordinate with surgical patients to ensure they meet all their pre-operative needs, answer any questions they may have pre/post op, visit all inpatient post-op patients before they discharge from the facility after a sleeve/bypass, order their labs for the year post op, get all lab results and discuss with physician, order medications, call all post op patients for follow up.
I perform Lap-Band adjustments when needed, if the mobile unit is traveling or a patient is having an emergent issue with the band, or if there is staff illness. I serve as backup for clinic staff when needed and travel to Fort Worth and Waco when required. I participate in patient education (what bariatric surgery will be like, pain expected, etc) and complete their pre-op paperwork.
Some of my responsibilities include coordinating monthly meetings with all department medical staff directors within the Wise Health System (WHS). This ensures that every aspect of the patient’s care is met from admission to discharge. I help to ensure requirements are met/maintained so that our American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) Center of Excellence (COE) is maintained.
