Vibra gave me an excellent chance to gain experience and to improve my skills as a Patient Care Technician
Pros: steady hours, friendly co-workers, helping others
Cons: at times job can get overwhelming
A typical work day was getting report from the previous shift. Greeting my patients after getting report. taking vital signs and accu checks. making sure my patients are clean and fed. Assist my patients with ROM. Providing wound care when needed, answering call lights, and assisting my nurses and fellow staff when needed. I learned to stay on my toes and be ready for anything, because you never know if an emergancy is going to take place. I learned to be a more efficient multi-tasker, how to do wound care, how to communicate with my nurses, How to chart on the HMS and eMar computer program. I thought my supervisor's were well informed about the patient's condition. I can always go to them if I had any questions. My co-workers are great. We work as a team and we communicate well with each other. The hardest part of my job is that there is only one of me. I will have 10-20 patients at a time and when there is multiple call lights going off and my nurses need help at the same time I feel like I can not get to them fast enough. The most enjoyable part of my day is that when I see that my patient's health is improving that makes me feel good.
