Does Experience Count? Only When You Have It

Cori Kasten RN

Founder and Owner 

I have been a registered nurse since 1983, specializing in home care since 1991. My entry into home care started in Queens, NY where I was a case manager and visiting nurse for The New York Hospital of Queens. My home care experience first began visiting and caring for patients through Medicaid programs in NYC.  I then went on to work with North Shore and Long Island Jewish Hospitals visiting and caring for their Medicare home care patients. In 2000, I relocated my family to South Florida where I became a long term care assessment specialist conducting nursing assessments for many long term care insurance companies. It was there that I honed my nursing assessment skills and completely focused on long term care and the insurance policies that provided coverage for these very special service needs.

After working for two private duty home care agencies I began to see how the mismatching of caregivers and clients caused the quality of care to suffer tremendously. I always believed meeting the clients’ needs with a suitable caregiver was of utmost importance. So in 2008 Platinum Select Nursing, LLC was born to bring back that “old fashioned nursing care”. It’s what I refer to as nursing basics….personal care and companionship. We are passionate about what we do and it shows. Everyone here at Platinum is committed to providing the very best in care giving and customer service.
