Supportive learning environment with excellent staff
Nurse Clinician - Surgical/Orthopedic Unit (Current Employee) – Greenwich, CT – November 14, 2016
Working on a surg/ortho unit, one of the most challenging aspects of daily care is adequately controlling pain in the post operative patient. While that is not the only thing I do, adequately controlling pain allows the patient to rest at night, and perform physical therapy during the day, both of which increase healing and decrease time spent on the unit. The staff members are a great resource, as everyone is willing to help each other, and the supervisors are very supportive of the staff. Being my first nursing job, I am learning extensive amounts of new procedures and situations, too many to list.
