Pros: great staff of nurses
Cons: hospital recently hired many brand new grads
Duties on 3West were getting bedside report from previous shift, determining if any information passed on required immediate attention, administration of medications, treatments, report of abnormal labs to doctors, teaching patients if needed on new medications, treatments and tests.
Every day at the job was a learning experience. I worked with a wonderful group of nurses.
The hardest part of the job was trying to educate patients who either didn't want to learn or didn't have the ability to learn.
The most enjoyable part of the job was to have even 1 patient say that they appreciated all that I did for them that day.
