A great hospital to work as a respiratory therapist
Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – September 25, 2017
A typical day at work is either working on the general floor or in the critical care. Depending on what area you work, you will have different types of patients. General floor care would include drawing blood, breathing treatments, and running non-invasive breathing machines. Critical care includes patients that are more critical and need assistance breathing via a mechanical ventilator. Both areas you are required to work closely with the doctors and dispense the proper medications that are ordered. I have 16 years experience in respiratory therapy.
Working closely with patients, doctors, nurses, and other staff members.
Can be very hard to see death on a daily basis.
