Very busy, team oriented, high-risk labor and delivery unit
Labor and Delivery Nurse (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – April 18, 2016
This unit rotates its nurses between its laboring patients, pre-op, intra-op, post-op, triage, and high risk areas. I have learned many skills and gained much knowledge in this department aside from just laboring patients. We get patients who have PIH, diabetes, drug addictions, and many other issues. Most management really tries to pitch in and assist their employees on our very busy days when we are short staffed. Our co-workers are team players as well. We really support each other because we understand how busy it can be when we have multiple patients and multiple tasks to complete. The hardest part of the job is really being present for all of our patients because we usually have one that requires more attention than the others. This is where our team work comes in to play. The most enjoyable part is playing a significant role in one of the most important days of someone's life, when they welcome a new life into their family and the world. Very fulfilling.
