at first I didn't enjoy night shift, but it grows on you. I do miss working with day shift.
Pros: learn to work by your self
Cons: health care, cost to much. i pay but not worth seening a doc.
clock in 6;53,
A typical day at work, well it starts with changing into scrubs, kitchen restock, echo, 4 cath lab rooms, scan, move to IR, scan. grab any dirty instruments. lunch. start to pull my orders, put aside, pull PACU, deliver, grab OR solution cart, take up my supplies to Cath Lab, IR. put away, restock solution cart, bring back to OR.
what – more... I have learned, well it is communication, on special order items.
management is fantastic. she will let me know what I have missed.
co-workers, are evening shift. no one is in cath lab when I get there.
hardest job, well learning all the special order items.
most enjoyable part of this job, all of it, now anyway. at first I hated it and wanted to go back to ER. great working on my own. – less
