Extremely busy OBGYN Practice
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Odenton, MD – April 26, 2017
A typical day at work would start with triaging the night calls and emails.Patient care through the day consist of NST, labor checks, BP checks, laboratory diagnostics, diabetes teaching, injections as ordered by physician and much more.
My management was strong, resourceful, educated and carried a very deep care for the practice. They imparted invaluable wisdom into skills as a nurse.
The work place culture consisted of 9 physicians, a sonographer, 9 MA's, A front office staff, a surgical scheduler and two RN's. It was a very busy office. Most days we have 100+ patients. We also had a second office that we took care of as far as triage.
The hardest part of the job was transitioning from inpatient care to outpatient care. Despite what many believe, outpatient nursing is extremely demanding. It took a while to get a balance of time management that I could serve the physician and patients while directing the MA's and juggling the countless other responsibilities. Once obtained it was like riding a bike.
The most enjoyable and rewarding part of the job is happy healthy patients with happy health babies. After caring for a high risk mother that wasn't sure she could make it to term, and seeing her make it through countless tests and nurse visits. They bring the baby in and its a miracle, my work and education helped bring that miracle into the world. That is my favorite part of the job.
Many days there was more work than could be completed in the 8 hours aloted.
