Meet Elizabeth Mora! Elizabeth Mora, NP is one of MeMD’s board certified Nurse Practitioners. She graduated from Texas A&M Corpus Christi with a Masters of Science in Nursing-Family Nurse Practitioner and has over 14 years of clinical experience. Below she tells how telemedicine has impacted her perspective as a provider and how to stay safe this Halloween season!
What inspired you to be a nurse practitioner?
For as long as I can remember I have enjoyed interacting with and helping other people. I went into nursing to make a difference and becoming a Nurse Practitioner has helped further my reach.
Has telemedicine impacted your perspective as a provider? If so, how?
Telemedicine has impacted the way I see healthcare and where it is delivered. Telemedicine has opened up the possibility to help those that can’t get to us. Now, with technology we can get to them, we can truly help more people. It is so great.
What type of feedback have you received from patients regarding their experience with telemedicine?
Patients are loving the easy access to a provider. We can help them with a wide range of issues and do it fast. Sometimes their primary care providers are too overloaded and simply cannot get to them. That is where telemedicine really shines. We can get to them and we can help offset the load. It’s a win-win for everyone.
Can you give us some tips to have a safe and fun Halloween?
- Check the weather first and foremost, and dress appropriately and in bright colors.
- Go in groups. Unfortunately, children can get overly excited and walking into traffic. We don’t want to see that. Supervision can help to avoid an accident.
- Take candy to get x-rayed. It’s fun and a lot of local urgent cares and free-standing ER’s offer this service.
