My typical day is ongoing case management of our dialysis patients. Our patients are able to live a life at home, or at a nursing home, and attend treatment 3 times weekly, 4 hours each tx. I provide ongoing supportive counseling, encouragement, and offer much needed community resources. The most enjoyable part of my job, is to be able to bring a smile to a patient's face.
The hardest part of my job, is whenever I cannot find a solution to a patient's issue. My c-workers are all very pleasant , as team approach is of upmost importance.
