The days here at Bartlett hospital can vary greatly from day to day. We are a regional facility, so we take care of a lot of smaller communities emergent health needs as well. As a Respiratory Therapist here, our skills and knowledge are used in a variety of tasks each day. I can go from being in a code, to a birth with a distressed baby, to managing a ventilator in just a matter of hours or minutes. And yes, some days are slow, but there are always things to do. This job requires me to be able to use my time management skills, ability to prioritize, and all of my knowledge I gained during my professional life to provide the best care for our patients. My favorite thing about this job is really being one of the team; our specialized skills and knowledge give us the ability to have a voice in the management of our patients. The doctors listen to our suggestions and are open and willing to come to us to help provide ideas or other alternative options for our patients. Juneau is a great place to live, and a great place to raise a family, as long as you like the outdoors and don't mind the rain. The hospital has amazing benefits and great PTO.
