CMSA conference in Las Vegas, Nevada

Flying Nurses International recently attended the CMSA (Case Managers Society of America) conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. Case managers from hospitals and facilities all over the country attend the conference’s vendor fair to learn about services and products to make the lives of their patients better, and the Flying Nurses International booth is always a popular stopping place. We take the pressure off case managers, when they have a patient that needs to be sent home or to a different facility by air, by dealing with every aspect of the move bedside to bedside. FNI was well represented by our COO, Dana Erskine-Pando (pictured) and Darrin Pscion. In the picture is the winner of our giveaway, Ms. Faith Holland, Director of Clinical Operations and Case Management at Kaiser of Renton, Washington. She won a pair of BlackWeb wireless over-ear noise cancelling headphones, which are always coveted for the ride home on the plane!! Congratulations, Faith!

Case Management Conference in Houston, TX

Flying Nurses International was very well represented recently by Dana Erskine-Pando, BSN, FNP, COO and lead coordinator of FNI, along with her husband, Darren Pscion, retired firefighter and EMT, at two outstanding Case Manager conferences.  The first was the ACMA (American Case Managers Association) conference in Houston, Texas, in April.  The pair greeted hundreds of attendees and really enjoyed putting faces with names, as they met many of the case managers FNI has worked with over the years.  In June they traveled to the CMSA (Case Managers Society of America) conference held in Chicago, Illinois, and again met so many great case managers, nurses and social workers, all working to care for their patients with the same dedication and integrity that Flying Nurses International has exemplified throughout our 20+ years in the medical escort business.  We love working with you!
