Good, strong work family that puts patients first
Registered Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – April 11, 2016
Typical day of work begins by receiving the floor(s) you are working that night, and checking each patient to verify the medications given. Once a face to face report has been given by the off going Therapist, you begin administering all medications and treatments to each of your patients. Upon completion, we always call the other Therapists to see if they are in need of any assistance at the moment. After first rounds, the Clinical Leader checks the remaining treatments for the night then sees if people need to be sent home or if they can stay.
Coming from the VA, the patient population is much more vast and different. We have neonatal patients, pediatric patients, cystic fibrosis patients and everyone in between. It has been a tremendously education work environment where we are encouraged to seek further education in all facets of our jobs.
The co workers are a delight to work with. As I stated before, we always check on each other to ensure that we are being taken care of, and all of us are eager and willing to assist in any way possible.
Friendly staff, good work environment
