Pros: very close to home, and a well oiled machine
I worked 12 "never a dull moment" hours at Carolina Medical Center Main taking care of 30+ patients and their family members. I learned empathy, patience, and how to actively listen. Management was always there for you at a blink of an eye for coaching, and managerial needs. Once you the do aforementioned 12 hour shift, your co-workers become family. We were the heart and soul to our patients dietary needs, and always helped each other, when feasible. In the beginning, the hardest part of my job was keeping a poker face when a patient was going through their turbulent moments. The most enjoyable moments/parts of the job was the comraderie with the doctors, and nurses, and most importantly, the smiles on the patients face when it was lunch and dinner time.
