educational setting for students interesting in Physical Therapy Careers
Physical Therapist Aide/Volunteer (Current Employee), Brooklyn, NYDecember 6, 2014
Pros: very educational setting
Cons: not a variety group of people
I Volunteer here to contribute towards my community while obtaining a learning perspective for the career of Physical Therapy as well as Occupational Therapy. A typical day would include transportation of post operative patients from their rooms into the physical therapy rehab gym. Once transported patients are physically examined, there vitals are monitored depending on additional illnesses and patients are instructed to perform a multiple variety of exercises and motions that contribute towards their improvement. I have learned about proper protocols, different illness and the correct methods to treat and approach the illness of disabled patients. The most difficult part of this job is that many of our patients are sick in addition to their disabling conditions and there are many times when patients randomly puke while walking or exercising, fall because they are dizzy or feel faint or even uncontrollably urinate on themselves because of an unknown condition. The most enjoyable part is that I am able to contribute towards my community while educating myself about physical therapy.

Productive an interesting workplace with patients
TH STAFF ASSISTANT 2 CARDIOLOGY DEPARTMENT (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NYOctober 15, 2014
A typical work day at Downstate was greeting my patients in the morning and making sure they were registered and ready for the doctor. I helped those who needed help filling out paper work and obtaining referrals from their PCP. Like any other job not all co-workers were team players, those that were made the day move smoother.
Working at Downstate taught me lots of patience and much understanding to the patients' needs. I did everything I could to make sure they receive the same and proper treatment they deserve.
The most enjoyable part of my job at Downstate was hearing a patient thank me for helping them. That was my satisfaction of the day and what I miss the most.
