Have always loved the staff that works here.
Senior Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – October 25, 2018
A typical day starts 20 minutes before my shift. Assignments are made and staffing to pt ratios are adjusted to balance out work loads. Stock levels are checked and I meet briefly with the dept head and day shift senior. Through this, I've learned to think quickly in situations, prioritize what needs to be done, as well as answer any questions or concerns from the staff.
The goal is to always keep our customers comfortable , happy but most of all cared for with kindness and consideration.
The most difficult part in my current role is trying to find the balance as a staff therapist, as well as senior to keep everything running smoothly.
The most enjoyable part of my job is the relationships I've made with fellow therapists, nurses and doctors. Also, the patients I've come to know over the years,who return frequently due to their disease process.
Poor work life balance, Pay is still below what others are making in the area
