Riley Hospital for Children
Telemedicine is very rewarding and fun. I have been a telemedicine nurse at Deaconess for 5 years. Once we present this option to parents they are very comfortable and happy with the outcome. The doctors that I work with at Riley are awesome. They seem to like telemedicine as much as I do. The Evansville location is more convenient for parents and saves them time and money. It is a way of the future.
