Working in the emergency room, there is no typical day. You don't know what will come through those doors. everything from a scrap on the knee to a CPR in progress when patient arrives.
Since i am a E.R. Tech. i mostly prepare the doctors and nurses for the things that are out of my scoop.
The staff that is there is amazing its like your home away from home, and in all reality you do spend a majority of your day there so they are family.
There are those great days where you are glad that you can help someone, but also remember I do work in a hospital so lives are lost and that never gets easier. You have to remember we humans just like everyone else, but we are also there to help people so we are no help if we cant help ourselves.
The most enjoyable part of my job is that you do get to know your community and see familiar faces but also you do meet new people everyday and also everyone has a story so you dont know whats going on in someones lives, be there for the patient. we are there for them. We are patient advocates.
