Memorial Miramar is a great hospital, great health care with high standards and expectations.
Pros: i work for a great healthcare system.
Cons: not enough time in the day to get things done.
A day at work starts every Friday because I work weekends . I get report from previous shift RN CM.
Hopefully we have no call out , if we do I will call in the on call RN. We have a pre- shift huddle where the employees for that day are reminded how we are going to pull together as a team to provide the best possible care to our patients. I also relay any new information or process that will be going on for the next week or month(day to day) due to many changes in healthcare. I come make sure patients have no concerns and if they do we take care of the issue. At 9am we have a bed board huddle to find out our bed situation with all CM,Case Managers, Director of nursing Dietary, P.T, IT, Faculties. There we speak of all department issues. I then return to the ED and make sure staff is appropriate for the next 3 days. I work the floor have direct patient care with all pts in the ED.
Make sure orders are carried out in a timely manner.
I work 12 hr shifts. That is a day in the ED. The hardest part of my job is not having the appropriate staff to run the ED. The most enjoyable is when pts tell me what a great team we have.
