Busy and fastpaced healthcare in a hospital setting.
LPN (Former Employee) – Morgan City, LA – March 1, 2017
I would start by rounding on patients, performing shift head to toe assessment, and introducing myself as the nurse for that shift, and obtain vital signs. I would administer medications as ordered at designated times. Assist patients with ambulating and making the patient comfortable. Starting and discontinuing IV's. Administering injections. Discharging patients. I learned various skills, time management, prioritizing tasks. Mangement was great during the time I worked there. The hardest part of the job was having sometimes 7 patients and also trying to assist my fellow nurses when the unit was busy. The most enjoyable part of the job was taking care of new mothers and babies after delivery.
Taking care of mother and babies during this joyful time.
12 hour shifts, shift work
