Nobody told me how to sit there correctly, and I was lost and sat very slowly. Again, this doctor started to yell at me and say some offensive words to me. This kind of attitude made me cry, because I expected gynecologist to be kind, patient and friendly with girls that have never visited them. Truthfully, due to my emotional stress I even had no words to say. Later, when this nightmare has finished, I was asked to proceed to the doctor’s room for further directions.
Description: In week 7 we had visited Wesburn Manor, the Long-term Care (Clinical Placement) setting. It was our first time there, therefore as a group, we oriented the place. At this time, we went to each nursing station on each floor and introduced ourselves from the organization we were from and how we will be providing patient care to the clients in this setting.

While waiting for the lecture to start, a lady from the respiratory therapy department stops by to gave us a case scenario about a COPD patient in the ER with a SPO2 of 78%. She asked us what we would do first. After everyone gave her an answer, she explained us what to do in some emergency situations.

While I was being trained, I closely observed how the social worker interacted with the residents before she began assessing them. I also took notes of what I was told to do while I was in training as well as when I saw it being done in person. Before I started assessing the patients by myself, I would come home and practice asking the questions to my roommate everyday a couple of weeks. With the help of close observation and detailed notes I was able to properly practice on my roommate, which led me to feel comfortable with assessing the patients by
Finally the time came. I had two interview, both very friendly women. The first one worked at Planned Parenthood. I was a little nervous but she was very sweet so she made it go by very easy. Next was a nurse from John F. Kennedy hospital.
Reflection of the experience Alzheimer’s unit at the Villa cares for patients that need more special care and have some type of cognitive impairment. The first thing I did was introduce myself to the staff and the residents, I talked with the nurse aids in charge and asked them about the clients, their routines, what activities they like and which ones they don’t.

I saw at first-hand the impact of diseases including, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, but more importantly, I witnessed the impact of empathy and good care had on a patient and their families.
She often refferred to a paper with the patients history of problems and she grabbed things they needed for tests for the patients well-being. She was helped by a nurse 's aid. If they needed answers they usually went to the doctors or went back to their patient information for more insight.

Some things I thought was cool was the relationship she had with some of her patients.
