Pros: in the most part, flexible work schedule
Cons: computer charting beyond normal work hrs., when working weekends, worked 50hr straight with no sleep time scheduled, and being on continous on-call friday 5p till sunday 8p .
Good philosophy in the care of patients at the end of life situation. Helping families of patient to get thru a very difficult time of their life and offers consulting for 13 months after loss of patient
Friendly co-workers that worked together as a team to solve problems.
The hardest was when I worked the weekend schedule for over a year . The weekend – more... started Friday 5p till Sunday 8p. No sleep time scheduled and was on call the full 50hr. Most time not able to nap due to constant calls from triage. Created dangerous situations driving when tired. Having to do admissions and the on call . Unsafe working conditions. Covering Cecil, Harford and Baltimore Counties. Computer charting beyond work time.
Love caring for my patients at their most difficult time of their life and helping families to adjust to the loss of their loved one. If I was able to keep the patient out of pain and have a peaceful passing, I had accomplished our promise. – less
