Testimonials

"She has been perfect for us particularly since we are in our Joint Commission survey window for both our Disease Specific Care certification reviews and our triennial accreditation.  I also believe she is the one that’s helped us identify the root cause of some of our SSI’s.

Thank you for connecting us with [her]."

"[She] is an excellent addition to our team. She was able to hit the ground running, and I am very excited to be working with her. I believe with her positive attitude, we are really going to be able to turn our little home health ship around, and get it running well."

"[She] walked into a very challenging position - technically, politically, and operationally. She inherited a disorganized and unreliable credentialing history, records, and dysfunctional staff. She has a terrific work ethic, very pleasant interpersonal and leadership style, and great fund of knowledge. She has been incredibly reliable, dedicated, focused, and industrious. Thank you for sending her to us."

"[The Galileo Interim] was well received by our hospital staff members. She built relationships and was always in an "appreciative inquiry" mode. She quickly came up to speed on the transition of the retiring Quality Manager, and effectively transferred the necessary information to the new Quality Manager.

Many among our team have said they would like her to stay? We would like to have her come back for specific projects as needed."

"[He] spent an extended time at our hospital and lay the foundation of a strong infection prevention program. He assisted with program development (including training a new IP) and with policy development. He was well-received by everybody. Very adaptable to different audiences, always professional, and approached circumstances with a goal of providing support and guidance. In my experience, he was one of the strongest infection prevention professionals I've worked with, and he has my strongest recommendation."
