Later, when this nightmare has finished, I was asked to proceed to the doctor’s room for further directions. Thankfully, the nurse was so kind and she calmed me down and advised to visit another gynecologist at this center. She gave me her card, and said that she is very kind and humane toward the patients. The moment I came out of the doctor’s room, I realised that instead of receiving a good service and patient attitude for my first visit, I had a
Being able to have a chance to watch parental visits, the delivery and postnatal visits, is a great way to put all the steps together. My OB experience has positive and negatives outcomes. The first OB mother I got paired with, did not have any prenatal visits left when I contacted her, but I was able to watch the placement of her cervidil. Her labor went extremely fast, and the nursing staff was unable to call me due to the fasten of her deliver. Then I was going to get place with another nurse’s student, to watch that birth.
She needed to get her medication refilled, when I asked her which one, she replied "the one I take for fat". She meant for her cholesterol. From that moment, my decision to pursue pharmacy education got stronger than before. In addition, I worked as a Wellness Ambassador where I was assisting patients find over the counter medications, direct them to the pharmacist for medication questions, community outreach activities such as immunization clinics, as well as organize monthly health events inside the
His family “ had a frank talk, a conference with his entire medical team, about his future”. It was said that although Mr. Kohn recovered fast, he was not expected to make a full recovery. After a stroke, he was able to talk and communicate similar to before his stroke. This adds on to the necessity of conversations between patients, their families and their doctors, even if things are looking good it might not end good. The only people who could know this are the trainer and educated doctors that withhold vital
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
We answer our phones starting 8:30amto 12:00pm and 2:00pm-5:00pm Monday through Thursday, and 8:00am-12:00pm on Friday. However, because the doctors and nurses are with patients during the day, they may be unable to speak with you directly at the time you call. Our reception staff will do their best to answer quick questions, but more complex ones will require a phone consult with a practitioner. Patient Portal Messages: Can be sent through your patient portal account. Messages will be answered within 1 working day of receipt, but is best suited for administrative concerns.
When I decided to enroll to become a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) last 2009, I know that I would be dealing to different types of people and be part of a team that would be responsible in healing and promoting wellness to our patients. When I acquired my license, I immediately started to look for a job where I can apply the concepts I have learned. I was accepted to various nursing homes and during my stay I got the chance to meet and work with people from other countries with different culture. At first, I was hesitant to converse with them because I might say or do something that is inappropriate to them. For example, I have a workmate who is a Muslim and I am a Christian.
Talk to the patient, show them that you care about them. That always makes them feel more comfortable. At my job every time we get a new admit the nurse and I have to do a skin assessment. What it means is that we check if the patient for any bruises or open wounds. Most of our patient are elderly people since I work at a cardio hospital.
Over the course of the next two weeks, I grew to admire and appreciate the nurses on the step-down unit. One nurse, especially motivated me to choose nursing as my profession. My mom and I would talk with the nurse each time she would come to care for my mom. For example, the nurse, my mom, and I discussed the events of the day in addition to my nonappearance on picture day. Nurses, along with their hard work and determination, impacted me because they accept what life unexpectedly throws our way.
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. This experience helped me learn how to overcome challenges faced when caring for patients each day and it reinforced my motivation to work as hard as possible to succeed in nursing school and continue to work to care for others. The experience also provided an opportunity to act as leader since the assisted care home I worked at this past summer was understaffed due to a change in ownership and some staff changes. When my team was short caregivers, I made sure that I spent more time with each patient to ensure they did not have anxiety about the change and end up worried and feeling alone. I found that a few minutes of companionship and
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. A typical day for Cindy was woke up, checked on al her patients, took vitals and then prepared them for any tests or surgeries they needed for the day. Some things I thought was cool was the relationship she had with some of her patients.
I spent most of the time observing my mentor while she performed check-ups on her patients. Also, I saw my mentor give injections to patients to help with pain. I researched the roles and contributions of a physician assistant in the medical field. I did not realize how much physician assistants could do until I researched it. Also, the contributions that physician assistants make go unnoticed by many, they are trained to be just as proficient as physicians.
I can honesty say that I perpetuate some of these agressions with out really noticing that I am. Im not as blatent about my statements and ive come along way since taking social work but like sometimes I don’t even notice what I said could be considered a microagression. Lastly we have the intern concept and it’s a very understandable concept. What I relate it to is when I visit my doctor. My doctor is the head of the clincical learning center at the group health so I always have a new student doing my basic work ups like asking questions and taking my
