EMT/Security, Houston, TX - February 23, 2015
A typical night at work consists of rotations between working the front desk, securing the property, and assisting residents with their medical needs. From working at Eagle's Trace I learned that anything can happen in the medical industry. I have gone from having a quiet night, sometimes without a singe call; To moving non-stop until our shift ended. We went on some extremely simple calls, where all we would have to do is check vital signs, to some fast paced wound care calls. The management at Eagle's Trace is good and bad, there were some moments where I felt I could run the establishment better than them, and other times where I was quite proud to be apart of the Eagle's Trace team. My co-workers score approximately an 80%; some of them were great, others I felt like I could not trust. The hardest part of working with the elderly is always coping with a loss or even a deterioration of their health, it is difficult to see someone with so much wisdom lose their sense of direction and to not have the ability to help them retain it. I absolutely loved spending time with the residents, I loved to listen to their stories from their children to their doctors visits, it feels like a blessing to even be able to meet some of them.
