Hello! My name is Leah Livingston. I am a registered nurse, and Temple Emanuel’s new volunteer Faith Community Nurse. What is a Faith Community Nurse? It is an active, licensed, registered nurse whose practice is intentionally spiritual. Services include hospital, home and long term care facility visits, referrals to support agencies, advocacy with health issues, education, and prayer. It does not include hands on nursing (wound care, medication administration, etc) or any service that competes with home health agencies.
Here at Temple Emanuel of Tempe, we are ready for all types of emergencies. The first aid kits are stocked, the AED (defibrillator) is charged and has new pads, we have an emergency, portable eyewash station and goggles for our custodians. I have, with help from staff, brought us up to date and will maintain our supplies and readiness as part of our recently added Community Health Advocacy program.
