The United States Healthcare System has been a topic of discussion for decades now, with the rising cost of healthcare, lack of proper preventative care, and the overreliance on medications to solve every health issue. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought these issues to the forefront, especially with the rollout of the vaccines.
Kimberly Overton, RN, a former nurse, and founder of Remnant Nursing Services, shares her thoughts on the current state of the healthcare system in the United States and what she believes is the way forward.
In a recent conversation with James Egidio, Kimberly expresses her concerns about the traditional healthcare system, stating that it is completely unsustainable and unfixable at this point. She believes that the entire system is a threat to both patients and providers, and the way it’s designed is not conducive to providing safe patient care. She encourages people to get as far outside of this traditional mainstream system as possible.
Kimberly believes that the solution is to build a new system completely outside of the current system. She founded Remnant Nursing Services, a private membership association, to help people get the care they need while staying out of the traditional system. Kimberly stresses the importance of keeping patients healthy and out of the hospital system, which she calls a sick care system.
Kimberly’s approach to healthcare is different from the traditional healthcare system in many ways. She believes that the system needs to focus more on preventative care and getting to the root cause of diseases, rather than just writing prescriptions and treating symptoms. She highlights the importance of nutrition and believes that the current system doesn’t promote it enough.
According to Kimberly, nurses need to step up and step out of the current system. She believes that nurses collectively could have stopped the pandemic early on if they had stood up and said no. Fear is a big proponent of what has happened, and it has left people feeling voiceless. Kimberly encourages nurses to come out of the current system and build something alongside it, where all of them can thrive, and patients can get the care they need.
Kimberly’s approach to healthcare is one that emphasizes the importance of patient advocacy and taking control of one’s health. She believes that patients need to empowered to take charge of their health. She believes that patients need to be empowered to take charge of their health, rather than relying solely on the traditional healthcare system. The traditional healthcare system has been under a lot scrutiny in recent years, and the COVID-19 pandemic has only highlighted its flaws. While its true that the system has made great strides in providing care, there’s still a long way to go. Kimberly believes that the only way to fix the system is to start over and build something new.
Kimberly’s approach to healthcare is refreshing and innovative, and it provides hope for people who have been let down by the traditional healthcare system. It’s a reminder that we don’t have to accept the current state of healthcare as the only option. There are other ways of providing care that focus on the patient’s needs and well-being.
In conclusion, the traditional healthcare system in the United States has its flaws, and the COVID-19 pandemic has only highlighted them. However, there’s hope in the form of new approaches to healthcare that prioritize patient care and well being. Kimberly Overton’s approach to healthcare is one such approach, and it provides hope for people who are looking for a way to take control of their health and get the care they need. It’s time for us to start thinking outside the box when it comes to healthcare and start building something new that prioritizes the patient’s needs above all else.
