Friendly coworkers in a fun work place
Patient Transporter (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – April 20, 2016
The job is very exhausting, but it is rewarding when you can comfort patients and their parents and see that you're really helping them. Its one of the few parts of a patient's day when they aren't worried about what might happen in your care (e.g. being poked with a needle, having their blood pressure taken, anything else that might be scary to a child) because you're just taking the patient from one part of the hospital to another and not harming them in any way. During transports I always make sure to create a safe environment for the patient to be in, they are already under a lot of stress while having to stay in a hospital. The hardest part of the job (for me) is the stress it puts on my feet because of the miles and miles I walk everyday, but I get my workout! I learned more than anything that I love caregiving and working with people, its a little something different everyday.
