Weekly Self S.O.A.P - A. S- Discuss your SUBJECTIVE feelings for this week: This week I finished my rotation in the emergency room. I felt very comfortable in this unit. I was able to put to practice what I have been learning during lecture by triaging and assessing patients. I was able to work in the trauma area and in area 4, where they hold “non urgent” patients.
Last week I found the information that I gathered from the assignment on conducting a visit to a local healthcare facility to hold the most interesting concepts from me. Having worked for different healthcare facilities, I have had my share of Joint Commission visits. It is not at all a visit that hospital employees look forward to. Learning about the details behind what the surveyors intend to achieve by examining hospital practices, questioning employees and asking patients about their stay makes more sense now.

My two surgeons were Gosta Pettersson (cardiac) and Sudish Murthy (cardiovascular). Combined these men perform about 800 surgeries a year at Cleveland Clinic. When entering the waiting room to prep for the surgery the kind words of encouragement helped me feel at ease. The nurses wheel me to the operating room and my brain explodes. There are so many things going on.
I missed a lot of school growing up because of my cancer treatments and surgeries, but I never fell behind, and I always had teachers that looked out for me. For high school, I went to J.M. Tate High School, and graduated with highest honors. I loved school from kindergarten all the way through
One of the major parts of completing the nurse residency program involves completing a project that would improve our specific units. I have formulated with my partner a few ideas to present to my manager, so that she can be informed as well as approve my project. First I thought about some of the issues that my unit has been facing recently. One problem that first came to mind is our units increased number of falls within the last month.
I arrived at Hospice around 0750. I gave the name of our contact, and she showed me where I needed to go. There was a little confusion with who I was going to go with, so I waited outside the office until they were able to figure it out. I ended up getting placed with a lady named Judy and she was very helpful throughout the day. We sat in her office until nine and she just asked me questions about myself, like where I was from and what kind of nursing I was interested in going into.
Today was my seventh visit at the Woodhaven Care Center. Both my CI and I, were scheduled to leave at the same time today, so for a change we were extremely busy trying to get as much done in a half day as possible. In this short time, I worked with five patients. I had four of the five go through various therapeutic exercises, gait training in parallel bars, and up and down a flight of stairs. Since a few of these treatments were new areas to me, my CI performed the action once and I completed treatment with the patents.
Consistently for a few weeks last October, I was able to hear my parents talk about my mom 's multiple visits to the doctor. Every time I heard them talk, I listened carefully while I was doing homework in my bedroom. I was always concerned that something was wrong because of all those doctor visits. Finally, I heard the heart wrenching news of why my mom was constantly visiting the doctor. My mom had developed breast cancer.

I volunteered at Lenoir Memorial Hospital the Summer of 2015. I received about 58 hours of community service. Ms. Ann Durusky is the Director of Volunteer Services at the hospital. Volunteering at the hospital entails admitting and discharging patients from their rooms, escorting patients or guests to where they need to be, delivering emails, flowers, and gift baskets. At first, I was sent with the lead volunteer of our group and a partner, until I was able to remember what procedures to take in different situations.
As I researched what kind of careers would interests me, I discovered nursing brought these two worlds that I love together. My clinical experience is diverse. I had the opportunity to work in various well known hospitals in the greater Boston area. During my preceptorship at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center on the acute psychiatric unit, I managed up to 6 patients with a wide variety of psychiatric disorders along with managing their medical conditions.
