Productive work enviornment, patient care experience
Physical Therapist Aide/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Cortlandt Manor, NY – April 6, 2012
Announcing patients to the designated therapist, and escorting them to their room. Assisting with any tasks assigned to the patients, and keeping the work environment clean and tidy. Working closely with patients made me realize how much I wanted to go in patient care services. Taking care of a patient as a whole, and listening to their concerns made me want to continue my education. Co-workers became my mentors, which consisted of Physical Therapists. They gave me great advice, reviewed and educated me about their delivery of patient care. The hardest part of the job was the fact that I was the only Physical Therapy Aide, for 10-12 Physical Therapists, and 2-3 Occupational Therapist. Each therapist sometimes had 2-3 patients at one hour, which made it hard for me to announce them when they came in and place them in their rooms. The most enjoyable and rewarding part of the job was helping patients with their care and recovery of their injury.
