Typical day as a PCA on a trauma step down unit, is extremely demanding of time, and effort. I answer call lights, give baths, blood sugar checks, change linens for about 25-30 patients. Sit on 1:1 and watch patients to make sure they do not hurt themselves or someone else. My duties used to include vitals as well but have recently become the RNs duty.Things I have learned while working here for the past 2 years is to slow down sometimes, have patience, it takes a team in this profession to get the job done, breathe and ask for help if your feeling overwhelmed, its all about the patient their wellbeing and safety so customer service is a large part of my position. Management has recently changed for the better on this floor, he uses a more democratic approach and is always keeping us updated. My co-workers are amazing, like anywhere I feel some pull their weight more than others but overall we have a exceptional group. The hardest part of my job is that I can not be 50 places at once. The most enjoyable is being able to make someone laugh, smile, or feel accomplished at some of their most vulnerable moments.
