Great work environment with amazing staff
Patient Sitter (Former Employee) – Newport Beach, CA – May 3, 2017
My typical day at work would either be on the floors or in the ED sitting in a chair to watch over my patient that I'm assigned to for the day. The patients I watch are mainly Psychiatric, Suicidal, ETOH's and Gravely disabled. I make sure they don't hurt themselves or others, or fall. I also help them with their everyday routines if well enough.
As a sitter, I have leaned how patients react to drugs, alcohol and whatever ailments they may have. Working in a hospital has taught me a lot about patience and how to react to certain situations in order to make the patient feel more at ease and calm about what they are going through. The best part about my job is taking care of them at their worst and seeing them a couple weeks or months fully rehabilitated and well. The hardest part of the job would honestly have to be being hit or called names. That all comes with the job and its how you react to that situation is what makes all the difference. Management is great, I got along with everyone and they were very professional when it came to their employees and the patients.
