A Nurse Making a Difference at Casa

The American Nurses Association is celebrating National Nurses Week 2024 May 6 - May 12. This year's theme, "Nurses Make the Difference," honors the incredible nurses who embody the spirit of compassion and care in every healthcare setting.

Emily Fleisher, Casa El Buen Samaritano’s clinic manager, embodies the whole person healing spirit of Casa. By managing providers' schedules, training new volunteers, running monthly metric data, and coordinating with organizations, Emily ensures that Casa continues to deliver the highest quality care to patients in need.

“I manage a wonderful staff that serves our patients with so much compassion and care,” Emily says.

Emily notes that ever since she was a little girl, she loved to learn about the human body and serve people, so a nursing career was a natural and easy decision for her to make. That led Emily to volunteer at Casa in May 2016, where she was drawn to care for adult patients physically and spiritually in underserved communities.

“I loved Casa’s mission that every patient has the opportunity to not only hear but see the gospel in action at every appointment,” she says.

Emily shared a memorable moment from the Afghan clinic, a special clinic day for Afghan refugees ran once a month. She explains that a patient came in without speaking English and seemed beaten down, without a light in her eyes. While helping with patients, Emily assisted this patient in navigating through the clinic and drawing her blood at the end of her visit.

The next month, when the patient returned for a follow-up visit, her demeanor was very different. The patient shared that she was so happy to come to a place where there are people who care for her and speak with her in her native tongue.

“It was such a blessing to see her and how the Lord could use simple things like conversation and a caring nature to let others know they are seen and heard.”
