The day started at 6:30 am patients were prepped for surgery some nurses were scheduled to work in the Endoscopy Laboratory there we assisted with procedures. Conscious Sedation was administered.
Patients that returned from the Operating Room were managed in the Recovery Room. The nursing staff was diverse and the Nurse Manager worked and assisted the staff as needed. I learned to function in the Endoscopy Laboratory assisting with Colonscopys and Esophageal Dilitation and Banding of patients. The most enjoyable part of the job was patient teaching and patient education.
