Nurse Applauds Congressman McGovern for Visit

In appreciation of Congressman Jim McGovern’s recent home visit with Community VNA of Attleboro, the nurse who the Congressman accompanied wrote an Op-Ed praising McGovern’s support of home health issues. The editorial appears here in the Attleboro Sun-Chronicle.

Sandy Legg-Forgiel was the registered nurse and telemonitoring coordinator for Community VNA who brought Congressman McGovern on the visit to the home of a patient on telehealth services. In addition to his existing support, McGovern agreed to sign on to an initiative that would expand the use of remote patient-monitoring services.

Congressman McGovern is a leading champion in Washington DC for the home health industry having established the Home Health Working Group in Congress and has filed or signed on to several pieces of legislation throughout his career that were of benefit to home care.
