At Wuesthoff Health Systems the Occupational Therapist is responsible for evaluating and treating patients in the acute and outpatient settings. The rehabilitation department works demonstrates excellent interdisciplinary skills. The rehab directors are excellent and are very helpful and encouraging. It definitely makes a difference when working. The hardest part of my job is when the hospital senses is very low and there is not enough work.
A typical day at work is always exciting and expecting the unexpected. What i've learned is how to deal with people under stress and how to comfort them in bad times. My management has treated me with respect and always willing to help me with anything. The hardest part of my job is dealing with Baker Act Patients because these patients come in a different state of mind and its hard to make them understand that we are there to help them. The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting new people every day and when you are able to satify a visitor or patient its very rewarding.
Busy work place with many patients. Very fast pace and always on your toes for something could happen at the drop of a dime. The most enjoyable part of the job is taking care of sick people and knowing that you were the one who helped nurse them back to health.

Volunteer (Former Employee) – Rockledge, FL – March 10, 2013
I started volunteering from the age of 14 for almost 3 years and i enjoyed every minute of it. This was what I called my first job because it was hands on, and fast paste. I volunteered in several departments of the Hospital and was never afraid to try something new.
