My day at work is very busy and interesting, I respond to emergencies within the jail, perform history and physicals, head to toe assessments, detox monitoring, lab draws, perform EKG'S,. I have learned to critically think, evaluate patients and their situations getting to the truth of their ailments. Management is very helpful and is always available for any problems that may occur. I work in the Charge Nurse capacity. Therefore I am always helpful with the staff as well. My co-workers are fun, light-hearted group of people who pull together to help out wherever is needed. The hardest part of my job is seeing young men and women with severe drug addictions. The most enjoyable part of my job is being able to effectively communicate with the patient and teach them about their illness, seeing that patient make an effort to apply what you have educated them on.
