It is a must to have good critical think skills, ability to adapt to change, definitely patience. Must understand the inmates are our patients and treated with respect and dignity. It is a challenging environment but safe and rewarding
Ability to self-motivate, as well as confidence to work without direct oversight by MD most of the time. Medical issues that arise are both acute and chronic- that previous EMT/Paramedic license will come in handy from time to time.
