Procurement Transplant Coordinator, Torrance, CA - July 14, 2016
Working for OneLegacy was a great experience for me. The RNs are given total autonomy in overseeing the whole organ donation experience from working with the hospital staff caring for potential donors, discussing the option with family members, working the patient up for the donation process, offering out the organs according to UNOS lists and overseeing the procurement process in the OR.
Every day was different. Due to the on call demand and long donation process a nurse is required to be available 24/7. Some of the donors would take 24 - 48 hours and one RN would be at the hospital for 24 hours. This took it's toll on me.
