I enjoyed my time at Brotman. The clients ranged from ages 14 to 115 with a wide variety of physical and mental illness, races, and socioeconomic statuses.
I worked with AIDS, cancer, and near death patients in the ICU, SICU, telemetery, and general medical surgery.
I encountered the scope of mental illness working in the behavioral health unit and participated in discharge planning.
In the Emergency department I worked with patients of domestic violence, suicide, families of the deceased, and with a large homeless population.
Furthermore I had some time at Miracles Detox observing their group therapy.
