Productive place to work, fun envinroment
Helen Newberry is a wonderful place to work. A typical day for me would be, opening our clinic, balaincing between at least two different Doctors in a day.There are time though we can have up to four doctors in a day. I take care of vital signs, reporting anything back to the doctor that is a concern of the patient.Updating medication list, ordering tests, and making the patients appointments to come back and see the doctor. I've learned differnet medical terms, what different test are used for, what different medications are used for. I've also learned how to accommodiate the pateints we are seeing during the day. Weather it be a patient coming in to see a Podiatrist or an Oncologist. Every patient has different needs, and it's very important to make the necessary accommodations for these patients. I couldn't ask for a better staff to work with either, teamwork is a wonderful thing and in our department we do not lack that. Although, every department has tough obstacles to deal with, and dealing with someone that is having a bad day can sometimes bring down everyone around you. So trying to keep a positive attitude when a doctor or co-worker is having a bad day may be very hard. That's why I am very thankful this does not happen often, and we all work well together to make the day smooth. I will say I do look forward to working with the 34 different phyicans, and having everyday different would be the second most enjoyable things of my job. The first being, taking care of the patients.
working with resedents
I go to work . We have report, were all the CNA's for the nurse's get together before each shift and tell the next shift what needs to be passed on like if they fell or if they got out of bed, if they would take there meds for that shift . Then go on the floor and talk to the Aids that was on the shift before and see if they got dressed or showered or even if they was in a good mood or not. Any thing we need to know. Then answer lights and try to hand out waters, wash rages and towels, and put away the hang up that come from laundry. And get the vitals for the ones that the nurses say they need. Then we start getting the resident's up that needs help and get them down to dinner. Depends on if they stay in there room, we get trays to them and get the ones that need to get feed in the dinning room. then we push them to activity's if they want to and the ones that want to go to bed we start to put them to bed. And chart on what we do
