Monitor tech/unit secretary
Monitor Technician/Unit Secretary (Current Employee) – Chico, CA – May 21, 2018
As a mentor tech, I wore multiple hats; I had the role of unit secretary. So in addition to watching heart rhythms and vital signs, I was answering phones, paging doctors, calling other departments for various reasons, and really anything a secretary/unit clerk would do.
The culture of the hospital is great. Everyone is willing to help out if I fell behind. There was always something exciting after my shift Also, the culture was a 'patient center' care hospital. What is best is what is done for the patient.
The most important part of my job is helping patients stay alive and reassure them that their heart rhythm is fine. l also enjoyed supporting the family's relatives in delicate situations.
