Priorities are in the wrong place. Should be more about patient care, instead of new bulletin boards on the highway ect. Higher up keeps decreasing department budget and patient care vs. therapists are not fair. They put therapists in situations that could put license in jeopardy, and will not back them up. Only to make them feel as if they are doing something wrong. Yes, they may have the biggest ED around, but only stock one therapist per shift. Been in situations where multiple problems came in at the same time. Yes, you can call another therapist to help you, but that is if they are free. Its a good place to get exposure to many things, and be independent, because you are on your own most of the time. Also have had way to many ventilators to myself fifteen is way to much for one person. Looking for pat on back and told you are doing a good job? Don't look for it here, but make one mistake with anything and they will be right there to tell you, and issues are small. I'm not saying to not talk to others about things that need to be addressed, I am just saying to make your professionals feel needed and appreciated. Pay is low.
get exposure to many situatons. Learn to be independent
moral is low and amout of patient care vs therapist
