An excellent facility, focused on excellent patient care utilizing team work.
Psychiatric Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – February 18, 2014
A typical day starts with receiving shift report, making rounds to check on the patients, providing one to one interaction with patients, shift assessments, computer documentation of care and progress notes on each patient. medication, and updating treatment plan. Some nights, there are two or three admissions and some nights a patient or two might have behavioral outburst and need restraint and deescalation.
The most enjoyable and fulfilling part of the job is seeing the patients recover and become reality orientated.
The hard part of the job is not being able to go for break being the only RN during night shift, although Mercy Hospital pays for unattended break.
There is an excellent team work in my unit.
Encourages staff growth, paid $4000 towards staff tuition.
The time for the shifts are 7.30am, 3.30p and 11.30p instead of 7a, 3p and 11p.
