Productive and fun when we could participate with patients on a one to one or group setting during group activities like ,hall bean bag toss.I learned a lot from psych patients and why some of them are the way they are due to social,economics, environmental,and issues that happened during their early years of life ,but they still survived. Management was real good when I left my unit. There was always an open door if you had a problem or if you wanted to give a suggestion about something on the unit . Sometimes work scheduling was 'not what you perfered ,but it was workable.I worked with very happy professional nurses with a variety of likes and dislikes of fun and hobbies.The hardest part was leaving ,retiring after thirty years at The Christ Hospital. The cost is too high for gas to travel that far now for a part time job. The Christ Hospital gave me many opportunities to improve and better myself including a Cardiac Internship and working on cardiac floor and emergency room.But the most enjoyable part of the job was days or weeks later getting a card or letter form a x-patient thanking you for your help during hospital stay due to something you did,or said.
