A typical day for me at work involves being part of a team that collaborates to effectively provide the best patient care that we can for the veterans that we serve.
Working as a Health Technician requires the ability to multitask, and be in a continual state of learning, because healthcare is always evolving.
My co-workers bring various levels of experience to the job that allows me to benefit from them, and become more knowledgeable and better at what I do.
The hardest part of my job is when we are working with less than minimum personnel, but I have found that clear communication and defining our responsibilities within the team makes our day easier, because we have set our minds to provide the best customer service to our veterans in spite of staffing shortage.
I would have to say that the most enjoyable part of my day is talking to the veterans, and hearing of their experiences whether they are triumphs or tragedies, because it makes me proud to be able to serve the men and women who sacrificed their lives to defend our freedom.
Everyday is different
We often work short staffed
