Didn't matter your start time you would be jumping in right away. Triage calls from sending physicians to accepting physicians based on the dx. Assisting nurses with bed placement of patients. The down side of the job was having a patient expire while in transit or upon arrival. The best part was in knowing every decision made helped a patient!

The Cleveland Clinic is a great teaching hospital. I have learned so by working at the Cleveland Clinic. Moreover, I was able to obtain a degree because the Cleveland Clinic helped me to pay for it. One thing for sure the Cleveland Clinic changes just like the city of Cleveland's weather.

The primary goal of anyone working here is to provide high level of service to our patients and fellow caregivers. Keep that goal in mind everyday makes working at CCF rewarding. CCF strives to be a leader in healthcare and the management structure is designed to allow this to happen. Each area has a physician lead and business partner. Its this team work that allows each area to succeed. Hardest part of the job, like most large organization is the red tape to get things accomplished. Most enjoyable is the people you work with.

Working at Cleveland Clinic is great. Do like the weight loss you need to maintain for insurance purposes. The learning experience is great for nurses, resident doctors and managers. I learned a lot working at Cleveland Clinic taught me management skills and I tone my nursing skills as a new graduate wen I started at the Cleveland Clinic.
Also a high paced advanced floor where constant vigilance is required to keep an eye on your patient for any change in patient condition that had to be reported to the doctor. good charting was a definite plus
Everyday was a good day going into the Clinic. Very Friendly and caring staff that enjoyed there as much as I did.I I enjoyed getting to know the patients in such a short amount of time taking them to the department where there appointment was scheduled.
Always ready to make sure all thing are in order,making sure our unit is up to part. I learned to always turn a negative into a positive. My supervisor made me team lead on my floor, cause I take pride and lead in everything I do. I'm the oldest worker on my floor and all my co-worker value my opinion, having meeting and going back to work trying to make sure you complete your daily task in a reasonable time. The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting so many different people and making them feel part of the Cleveland Clinic experience, which is World Class Care and Patient first.
I would care for post operative patients which had a urological surgical procedure. I would have 3-5 patients. I would monitor the progression after surgery, and discharge patients upon recovery. I have learned how to communicate with patients and family, time management and be a team player. I also am a charge nurse when management is not available. My co-workers and I work as a team. The hardest part of the job was watching patients have difficulty during the recovery, The most enjoyable watching patients who think they will not be able to walk or recover quickly, be discharged home without difficulty. Also, my co-workers are a joy to work with. They make a stressful day more relaxing.
