My work with Dodge county was fulfilling, challenging and at times stressful. I worked 5 straight eight hour shifts, starting at 8 am Saturday morning and ending at 11:30 pm Sunday night, 40 hours non-stop. I learned how to pace myself, prioritize the tasks needed to be done and stayed level headed at all times.
The management was fair, treated me well and paid me a good wage for my services. I had deep respect for my supervisor, a female younger than myself.
The hardest part of the job was staying alert during this long shift. I was allowed a room to rest and relax, but it was a very tiring shift.
The best part of the job was being of service to the injured and ill patients. I enjoyed being asked my opinion about patient care and treatment by the doctors and nurses and being part of the healthcare team.
Makeing friends with co-workers.
Long shifts, fatigue and a long drive home.
