Performed psychiatric assessments on geriatric patients in their homes or places of residence due to multiple losses and difficulty for the caregiver to manage due to a change in their behavior. Medication were added, changed or dosages adjudged by the physician and I monitored weekly for any changes in behavior or side effects as well as teaching the patient and caregiver in regards to disease process. The most enjoyable part of my job was the contact with the patient's and their families. I loved the job itself, the management was great, the workplace culture was good, there was a continuing education program. The hardest part of the job was the paperwork/documentation.
Lengthy documentation taken home for hours every night.
