Fast paced hospital with nurse tech/unit secretary experience
Nurse Technician / Medical Secretary (Former Employee) – Berlin, MD – November 24, 2017
A typical day wouldn't be able to start without getting report from the nightshift CNA, and then again from my am nurse. Passing out breakfast to, and getting vital signs from my patients was the next top priority. Alter breakfast was collected I would assist (if needed) all patients with every daily activity of life (brushing teeth, bathing, change linens, ect). In between what I've listed I was also responsible for answering call bells for any additional needs my patients had, assisting nurses and doctors with any specimen (Blood draws, EKG's, taking out Foley catheters) collection or routine in room procedures, and getting patients ready for any imaging, discharge, or admission.
Handle a multi-line phone system, page nurses, CNA's doctors, transcribing doctors order into the computer for admission/discharges/routine daily orders, answer call bells and page Nurses/CNA's accordingly, greet family members and assist them accordingly, file, copy, transcribe the admission whiteboard so as to direct all clinical/hospital personnel, and family members to the appropriate patient/nurse/CNA/doctor, and assist charge nurse with any additional paperwork.
