busy old-fashioned hospital
Clinical Dietitian II (Former Employee) – Northridge, CA – August 10, 2016
A typical day at work included, reviewing patient unit lists, prioritizing the work day, managing time with patient consults, reading patient charts, seeing and educating patients, and rounding with doctors on cases in units.
I learned a ton at this job! I learned about medical nutrition therapy, nursing, the medical profession, hospitals, hospital staff, operations, hospital management, tray line operations, food service operations, staffing, holiday and weekend rotations, healthcare, patient cultures and cultural sensitivities, language barriers, body language, and more!
Management was poor to fair at this job.
My co-workers were all wonderful except for one dietitian who was over 300 lbs and always the white elephant in the room.
The hardest part of the job was working on the pediatric and pediatric icu units as well as the nicu and psych units.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working was the friends I made while working there and the people I helped.
free lunches, access to healthcare.
short breaks, long days, weekend shifts.
