Pros: a lift that is in the ceiling and new beds
Cons: work very short all of the time, hard to get help from co-workers and we were isolated due to the setup of the rooms.
Get your assignment listen to huddle notes/information. Get report and depending on who you follow can make for a rough night or good night. Meet patients do your patient assessment and care. Pass meds, bathe, give blood products when needed call doctor's as need arises. Take patient for emergent tests as need arises, most importantly listen to the patient and his/her needs. Reassure patient and family when needed, Always be compassionate. Learned to be more independent than I already am. Management is wishy washy at times. If she came in mad you would have a real bad day. Enjoyed the majority of my co-workers we had to depend on each other a lot because we were always short staffed. Hardest part of job was needing help and not being able to receive it. I love to work so overtime was abundant and meeting such nice patients and families.
