A hospital with a family atmosphere dedicated to quality patient care
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Smyrna, GA – October 30, 2014
A typical day at work on the Med/Surg Telemetry unit consisted of anywhere from 4-6 patients per nurse. Patients had a variety of diagnoses'. Some of the common ones being, chest pain, CHF exacerbation, hip fracture, ESRD, and uncontrolled diabetes. I learned how to prioritize, multitask, care for central lines, monitor blood sugar, and much more. I worked with a wonderful and patient group of people who were available to help me and teach me new things. The hardest part of my job was finding the time to get everything done in a shift. The most enjoyable part of my job was getting to invest in the lives of my patients on a daily basis.
