Having a good trust with you patient is helpful and it makes them more comfortable. For example, in my observation in Jewish General Hospital, I saw an extraction and I learned that the patient would always give a sign to the dental assistant if ever he needed the saliva injector and she would constantly use the saliva injector because it made the patient more comfortable. Even if it was every minute, she would still give what the patient what he wanted because it shows that he trusted her and he was comfortable that way.

Day-4 clinical experience, I was scheduled to stay in the surgery/OR department to watch some procedure. The surgery/OR department is completely different than Med-Surg department. Nurses who work in the OR department seems very busy and fast when they do the patient assessment on the arrival to the department.
