Dealing with pediatric patients
Visiting RN (Current Employee) – Upland California – January 27, 2014
I take care of a pediatric patient for one shift (8 hours) in the patient's house by keeping them company and playing with them. When I played with them, I started to learn their behaviors and their psychology. The management was great because they would notify me when I made a mistake on my paper work on the same week. My co-workers and I are like a team and we communicate naturally and they respond whenever I have questions when taking care of anew patient. The hardest part of the job is when there is a sudden change of condition of the patient (short of breathing), you have to act immediately. The most enjoyable part of the job is caring for the patient and playing with the patient. It is enjoyable when the patient and I are playing because I see that they are happy and laughing, but also when they cry because they are bored or they don't know how to use the toys and the reason why I enjoy is this job is that I learn their behavior and know what makes them happy.
