A typical day included attending morning stand-up meeting, getting ready for the day such as collecting chart information for new patients and review for meetings. Also conducted initial assessments, and family meetings, social visits, completed forms, completed discharge checklists.
I learned how to develop relationships with patients, how to ask complex questions, how to manage difficult or unfriendly patients, and how to time manage between patients.
Management of the facility was informative on what precautions to take on certain situations. My personal overall management varied for day to day depending on number of patients and situations that arose.
Co-workers were welcoming, friendly, fun, and helpful in various different aspects.
The hardest part of the internship was time limited, and when a patient's health declined.
The most enjoyable part was getting to know the patients and the community developed.
