RN - Observation Unit (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – May 27, 2016
telemetry most pt;s, observation less than 24 hrs, obtaining labs, and making sure all consults with all testing needed done asap. maintain iv's, antibiotics or drips as needed, most pt's from er some fro pacu needing additional observation prior to discharge. working for pt's knowledge and safety, teaching and keeping informed about why they are still op's and testing needed for definitive diagnosis could be made, teaching of what diagnosis may change upon discharge meds given and lifestyle changes if needed, I enjoyed caring for pt's needs and teaching pt's to improve there health. follow up care to be done and appointments. hardest part when unable to give the information they needed, I am always advocating for pt's and families.
