In an effort to share the faces behind our organization, we're shining a spotlight on our Team, Volunteers, and Board Members who have worked tirelessly to get Trinity Health Center open to provide health and healing to the working uninsured and underinsured neighbors in DeSoto County.
This week, we're spotlighting Trinity Health Center LPN, Madison Task. Madison has been with us since we opened our doors and has been a tremendous asset to our team and patients.
What is your role here at Trinity Health Center?
As an LPN, my role is assisting the provider. I triage patients upon entering the facility and I'm in charge of drawing blood, completing labs, and getting all necessary information from the patient before seeing the Nurse Practitioner. I contact patients daily to provide lab results, treatment plans, prescription updates, and schedule follow-up visits. You can also find me at the front desk assisting with the administration side of the clinic checking patients in, out, and scheduling appointments!
Why did you become involved with Trinity Health Center?
As a new graduate, I was eager to begin working and allowing those in need to benefit from my skills. I learned about his position through Dr. Patrick Ball, and applied without knowing the purpose and additional details about Trinity.
After my interview and being around the future staff, I knew this is where I wanted to be. I always imagined myself working in a fast-paced environment, but this was the perfect place to learn and grow as a new nurse.
From the beginning, everyone was so willing to teach me skills that they knew and mold me into the nurse that I am today. It was nothing like I expected but day by day my love for what I do continues to grow.
What excites you most about Trinity Health Center's mission and purpose?
From experience, I believe that those who are uninsured don't always receive the same quality care as those that are insured. Trinity Health not only offers quality health care, but it has become a safe haven for those who need it most. We don't just encounter people in the community who need a primary care provider.
Most of our patients haven't been to a doctor's office in years and they are searching for a sense of reassurance and a positive impact in both their physical and mental health. Our team has made many connections with our patients and hearing their gratitude has made everything so much rewarding.
What are some of your favorite places in our County to enjoy a healthy lifestyle?
To maintain my health, my favorite gym to work out at is Edge Fitness in Hernando! I've noticed that working out has improved both my physical and mental health. With the help of everyone at Trinity, I have attempted to change my eating habits for a healthier diet (it's a challenge, but I'm trying)!
