Besides being a skillful nurse, when WIHCC was young, Liz Blackgoat is the Women’s Health Coordinator. She works hard to make sure her patients are scheduled and seen in a timely manner. Knowing how a cancer diagnosis can devastate a patient and her family, Liz is always supportive to her patients, reassuring them and comforting them. Her compassionate style of caring gives all of us a feeling that someone cares.
Liz is always ready to educate her patients and their families as well as her coworkers. There was a time, on short notice, Liz was asked to make brochures demonstrating the services her clinic offers to meet the needs of American Indian Women and without hesitation, she designed and produced the brochures that were needed. She uses her resources to help provide pertinent information and education on cancer screening and treatment to all our clinical nurses.
Liz has excellent interpersonal skills. She is always calm, polite and works well with all departments here at WIHCC. It is obvious that she is committed to her patients by the programs she has set in motion, all in her commitment to better quality of care to our patients and to WIHCC.
