A typical day at South Seminole Hospital on the progressive care unit.
I have four to five patients per day. I review my assignments and prioritize my patient's list, medications and patient's needs are discussed with the previous shift. I do a full head to toe assessment on all patients, chart my finding, review labs results and report my findings to the doctors if needed. I learned the importance of a full head to toe assessment to provide adequate data collection. The management at south Seminole hospital rounds twice a day during the twelve hour shift to ensure adequate staff and patient's satisfaction. My co-workers work as a team and do not mind helping others when needed. The hardest part of my job is gathering information in a timely manner due to limited computers in the facility. The most enjoyable part of my job is helping a patient return to their normal functional state.
