Nurse tech II at North Florida Regional Medical Center
Nurse Tech II (Former Employee) – Gainesville, FL – May 23, 2013
A typical night at work for me was to support my duties for patients under supervision of RNs on a medical/surgical unit of the hospital. Duties included caring for wide range of patients with complex medical conditions.
I have learned so much while working at NFRMC including monitoring patient equipment like wound vacs, chest tubes, feeding tubes, Jp/hemovacs, catheters, rectal tubes, NG tubes and intravenous lines and pumps. I learned the importance of performing patient hygiene duties to prevent skin breakdown and prevent development of pressure ulcers. Also, I have learned to work with others and use team work to help make the patients feel comfortable and safe.
The hardest part of the job would be when we were short of staff because I felt the patients didn't fully get the care they deserved.
The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing my patients heal and go home fully recovered. Also, I enjoyed making patients happy and comfortable when they were having a rough time.
