Pros: Volunteer appreciation parties every week, free first aid kits, and free sanitary kits.
A typical day for me at Rush University Medical Center would include: clocking in at 4:00 pm, dropping my belongings off at my locker, changing into my uniform jacket, and fulfilling request for either patients or a nurse/doctor. Request could include anything to delivering flowers to a patient's room to delivering blood to the blood bank . At the end of the day, I would clock out. I've learn that patience is very important when dealing with the public. My supervisor had great communication and she had specificity when it came to direction . My co-workers were easy to work with. They all were positive and hard workers. The hardest part of the job was always being around sick people. When interacting with patients, it was extremely important to remembered to wash my hands frequently, keep my hands away from my face, and wear gloves. The most enjoyable part of the job was the fact that you're making someones day by helping them.
