Pros: 3 days a week, no weekend or late night shifts
Cons: staffing cut, no raises for 4 years
Worked 3 days a week at 11 hours a day.
Enjoyed seeing all the patients and helping them with their needs.
I have learned a lot from medical assistance tasks to assisting with sutures and trauma cases.
Management is very nice and helps out in any way she can, but unfortunately corporate puts too much unneccesary work on her so stress is a huge factor.
The – more... hardest part of my day is the language barrier. I try very hard to learn some spanish but medical terminology is very hard to understand and learn.
My favorite time of my day is getting to know the patients I take back. Acutally being able to talk to them and hear their stories is the best. It's nice to have a patient come back in months/years later and remember you! – less
