A typical night at work consists of doing breathing treatments, ventilator checks and management. Caring for patients that come into the emergency room with asthma, copd, or any trauma patients that may need to be resuscitated or ventilated or bipaped. I have learned a great deal of people skills, caring for patients, and how to use time effectively and efficiently. I work with a great group of girls, which make being there a little bit nicer and easier. If you enjoy the people you work with, it definitely makes your workplace nicer to be at. The hardest part of my job is my hours/schedule at the moment. I work full time midnights, 60 hours one week, 32 the next week, every other weekend and every other holiday. After 12 years its been taking its toll on me for sure. I am trying to get into a day job no matter the hours, or a 3 12 position if it's in a hospital setting. I enjoy helping people and seeing them get better.
good work environment
