Over the course of the past few years I had the privilege of shadowing Dr. Ghandi M. Saadeh and Dr. Ravi C. Kahatapitiya at Sentara Leigh Hospital. I was able to spend a substantial amount of time with both and I consider each man a great leader and mentor. The medical shadowing experience changed my views not only as a student, but as a person in general. I was taught the importance of the doctor-patient relationship and how to successful build bonds with people both in the office and outside of it. Both continuously conveyed that a patient should be viewed as a friend and each should receive the same level of respect and treatment no matter what the cause is.
Medical Evacuations have evolved in many ways throughout time. The military and the civilian sector will always learn and adapt to get medical attention to those who need it as quickly as possible. Now almost every hospital has medical evacuation helicopters that save lives in all areas of the country. This helps those who live in those areas where it’s impossible to get medical vehicles to them. We have learned over the years of how valuable this service has been and will be in future.

As an employee and a student nurse completing my capstone clinical rotation at this agency, I can vow for Lawrence General, that this organization is in fact living by their values and beliefs whole heartedly. Over the past three years, I’ve been a constant part of the Lawrence General or as we call it “Larry G” community. I choose to be part of this community because of their important core values and ethical practices. Patient-centered quality care is at the top of their requirements regardless of a patient’s personal beliefs, religion, race, or ethnicity. Teamwork is huge and most employees go out of their way to teach the younger generation tips of the trade.
Nevertheless, the “sinner” in the song is encouraged to “Get back up again”, (n.d.) as many times as needed.

He attended to the elderly equally well, helping them maneuver the clinics. He asked pertinent questions and was sharp, picking up on the events of the clinic life each day and did not complain about the heat nor circumstances. Watching him change from a boy to manhood has been a fantastic transformation. Watching and learning the man has been very rewarding. I know his heart, his character and his abilities and capabilities and with that background, I wholeheartedly recommend him to your program.
For all of the summer simulations, I was able to come on time and maintain a professional behavior with my peers and patient. For communication, I find myself being confident and relaxed compared to how I felt at the beginning of the summer simulation. For example, during subacute, my partner and I was able to provide patient education on the BIPAP machine to a patient actor and during the simulation, I never felt uncomfortable or nervous while delivering the education. For this week I would give myself a score of 4.

This learning actively greatly assisted in building my confidence, which I required in order to be successful in the new graduate RN role. Good collaborative working relationships are based on clear communication and collaboration with the patient and all members of the healthcare team. (Kieft, et al. 2014) This semester I had no issues with regards to speaking with physicians and other members of the healthcare team, and I continued to actively participated and contributed to daily rounds on all 3 critical care units. As a nurse I am viewed as my patient’s spokesperson and I advocate for them.
A pleasurable aspect volunteering at the United Hebrew Nursing and Rehabilitation facility was the opportunity to see the patients actively involved in meaningful therapeutic activities. In keeping the same schedule for several weeks it allowed me to briefly follow certain clients rehabilitation regimes. It enabled me to gain an understanding of the role of an Occupational Therapist in a skilled nursing facility (SNF) and rehabilitation setting. Therefore, I found it interesting seeing the strategies implemented in the sessions, such as, home hazard assessment and interventions before the patient is discharged. For instance, placing items on the floor and asking a high functioning patient how/if they could pick up the items if home alone.

Overcoming obstacles and improving myself through clinical experience, I learned of other essential qualities needed for success in the field. My greatest time of growth was during my junior residency in internal medicine. Working closely with physicians and developing a rapport with patients, I greatly enjoyed experiencing several areas of the field, from outpatient medicine to ICU to CCU. While the days were long and demanding, I left each night knowing that I had helped relieve my patients’ illness. That’s the reason I am only applying to Internal Medicine as my career; I am the type of person who has always had an acute awareness of other people’s suffering, which has led me to be an empathetic and caring physician.
