educational specialty institution focused on individual patient-centered approach
Pros: exceptional pay and benefits
Cons: always short staffed
A typical day consisted of many surgical patients, most of which were high acuity and required a lot of critical thinking. Management was available to help with facility politics, advancements, and patient complaints. The hardest part of the job was limited in-patient beds and patients being forced to wait in PACU until open beds/rooms became available. The most enjoyable part of the job was the exposure to various surgeries, cancer stages and progressions, and international patients.
