Field report / Germany

Eva B. (Germany) at respiro since 2008

After nearly 10 years of nursing and looking after our 4 children, I decided to start working again and joined respiro in 2008. After a short initial training phase, I felt very safe with a patient on home ventilation and dared to step back to an intensive care unit at a hospital. There, I quickly felt at home again and was able to work in a wide variety of intensive care units at a large hospital in Stuttgart. Two years later, I had an opportunity to work in the nursing service management. In the meantime, I have taken the position of a nursing service manager after further training in this area. I’m very grateful to respiro for giving me the opportunity to develop and use my skills.
