Productive work place in a good environment
Intern for Renown Skilled Nursing (Former Employee) – Reno – July 28, 2015
I enjoyed my time with the Social Services Department at Renown Skilled Nursing. I conducted research on social and financial services or resources concerning healthcare and the elderly population. I collaborated with other faculty members and staff at interdisciplinary team meetings to discuss planning and appropriate individual patient care. I also conducted psychosocial assessments on patients to evaluate the individual’s social and psychological status. I administered the Minimum Data Set (MDS) assessment to patients to evaluate the individual’s cognitive and functional abilities. I provided support for the patient and/or his or her family regarding any issues pertaining to the patient’s healthcare decisions or end of life concerns. Furthermore, I assisted patients and/or family with accessing available resources and services to obtain unmet needs and life necessities such as medication, food, water, and shelter. I also referred patients to other agencies for supplemental support not provided by Renown Skilled Nursing.
