Deborah Bain is the Managing Director of Prism Health Advocates. She is a retired nurse with 35 years’ experience in the medical field including: EMT, Ambulance Chief, Firefighter, Trauma Nurse, IV Specialist, Visiting Nurse, Hospice, Oncology, School Nurse, Assistant Director of Nursing for a Long Term Care facility including rehab and an Alzheimer unit. Debbie has been a strong patient and family advocate throughout her long career, both professionally and personally. Professionally she has always believed that nursing is not just the clinical aspect of patient care, but the all-encompassing support of that patient and their family in order to make sure they are well informed, cared for, and supported in whatever decisions they must make. Personally, family and friends call upon her for that same support on a regular basis. She has a keen awareness, through years of experience, of how the medical system works in every aspect. She has specific knowledge of medical providers, of all specialties, and appropriate facilities for all needs, and a huge personal and professional network base, with the knowledge of where to go for answers.
