Get to Know…Debi Lundberg, QAPI Supervisor

| By Jodi Horton

Editor’s Note: This column features people who keep things running behind the scenes and those who are on the “front lines,” providing care to our patients. All of the Casa employees have been asked to answer five questions. The first three emphasize their hospice care work and the last two give you just a little taste of who they are besides a hospice worker. Debi Lundberg

Q: What brought you to hospice care?

A: Following my own family experience with hospice, I knew the great care that hospice provided to patients and families. I realized I also wanted to give back in this way. I started working for hospice about 13 years ago and in that time I experienced my own mother and best friend requiring hospice services while also being an employee. I truly love hospice and the care each team member and support staff provide. I know personally and professionally the value of hospice care.

Q: What is your goal in your position?

A: To assist patients and families within my capacity, to be a support to fellow coworkers, and to investigate processes for continued quality improvement.

Q: In your opinion, what value does hospice bring to healthcare?

A: Hospice fills a gap when acute care is no longer desired or optimal. It is truly about living life to its fullest capacity and having quality time with loved ones. It also provides family support during a very vulnerable time.

Q: What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

A: Apart from working on a dual master’s degree, I enjoy spending time with my family and serving in my church.

Q: What is one thing on your bucket list?

A: A major item on my bucket list is to go on a medical mission to underserved countries. I also want to be a grandmother one day, spoiling my grandkids rotten and then sending them home to mom and dad.
