Collaborative and productive work day.
Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – Janesville, WI – February 9, 2018
I would start day reviewing MD schedule, checking for times of procedures, room patient, obtain vitals, reviewing meds and updating EMR. Inform MD pt ready. order any labs or tests needed for patient. I worked 18 years in Urology and learned so much. Such as, finding a kidney stone on an X-ray and knowing what I was viewing on a prostate ultrasound. Oncology was very informative, unfortunately I was not there long enough. There was typically someone around if I had questions such as my co workers or the doctor. The hardest part was losing a patient. The most enjoyable part was the laughter and making life long friends. You were sometimes at the mercy of your department nursing supervisor or MD you worked with.
