Pros: free medical advice from dr's
Cons: healthcare so minimal lunch break and no other breaks (no time)
12 hour shifts 30 minutes or less lunch
patient room to room rounding as soon as clocked in, answered call lights, answered phones, passed meal trays, fed patients who needed help eating, helped patients toilet, bathe, and other daily activities, helped ambulate and turn patients, took vitals, assisted with dressing/wound/ostomy changes, emptied drains, electronically charted everything I done, assisted RN's in anything they needed help with, watched heart rhythms and reported any serious changes, collected and transported speciments to lab, transported blood products, post surgery care for patients
I learned alot of minor medical, heart rhythms, teamwork,
management for the most part was pretty great. the company held annual company wide employee surveys that instituted the required changes in management that were better
co-workers in general were equally hardworking and teamwork
hardest part of job was the lifting and turning of patients who couldn't help themselves (up to 300lbs or more) and the never time for a break made for tough days.
the most enjoyable part was the meeting new and interesting people on a daily basis.
