A unique opportunity to explore a realm of nursing that I had not before.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Brentwood, TN – September 3, 2012
Each day at work I work very closely with our physicians, and patients. My area of expertise lies in the cardiac realm. I am in charge of the patients on our CCU, Step Down unit, CUB unit, and 6SE which is our Oncology/Nephrology unit. It is up to me to see that the patients and their families are happy with their hospital stay. I also facilitate discharge of the patients by working closely with case management as well as the physicians. I forward patients records from their hospital stay to their primary care physician. If a patient does not have a primary care physician I find them one. I facilitate a patient transfer to a higher care hospital when the need arises. I also help facilitate patients converting from inpatient to Hospice status.
i get to help patients make the most of their hospital stay.
