experience was challenging especially on Wednesday because I was made to look like a lazy person which I am not. But I had a great time on Thursday because of my awesome clinical instructor who gave me words of encouragement and checked on me frequently. Not forgetting my exceptionally good preceptor, she taught me a lot and allowed me to do all the patient care as she observed. The day ended up great with exception of having to break the news to the family of my patient that, she the patient need to be placed on hospice. It was an emotional time for both us (the care team) and the family because, the family was not ready to make the decision.
The sixth quarter of the program, plenty more of exciting things to learn. Because in nursing, there are so many areas I can enjoy and fit in. I am very excited about this quarter even things get, though. I had a great experience last week, and I learned different things. It was interesting when I listened to the therapist while she was asking questions about stress management.
My Brush with Technosis! 1) I was surprised to find out the amount of technology that I use with a given 24 hour period because I could not believe I was being exposed to technology 80% of my a day. Little did I know that my phone is 65% of that 80%. I rely on my smartphone because it helps me with everything I need to do and it saves me time the bad part of it is that I become more and more lazy because I went from using a pencil and paper for taking notes to using my cell phone to take notes. I rely on my cell phone because the notes I took could come in handy when I am on the subway because I can review the notes and study them on the bus ride home rather than pull out my book and study while everybody is staring. I would consider giving up my cell phone

Imagine your little boy walking into his doctor's appointment, when you walk out of it you are pissed and your precious little boy is crying because of the doctor you choose. In the appointment the doctor says "If you don't get healthy you will die, either get healthy, get a liver transplant or die." would you let you're little boy be scarred and scared for his life Because of his doctor? I have a disease called fatty liver disease and Doctor Bernadette Vitola is a nice woman, and a nice doctor, better than her co-partner Doctor S if I could I would put a syringe right through him.
Today is the being of my third clinical experience here at Avalon Care Center. The past two clinical days have very exciting and I have felt my confidants grow after each experience, going into each new clinical stronger than the previous one. After hearing some interesting feedback from my fellow classmates after our group discussion, I have been looking forward for today. Today clinical assignment was in the Rehabilitation unit also referred to as the “Hallway of Hope”, where patients are admitted from the hospital until there’re strong enough to return home setting or will be transferred to the Long Term Care unit.
This week I visited three of my patients. On Tuesday I visit Esteban Guzman and Peggy Willis. During my visit with Esteban was quiet and smooth because he was concentrating on writing in his notebook. Something that I notice that was weird was that he moved to a different room and was placed on the first floor. I don’t know why they moved him there, but it was odd to me.
I was eager and enthusiastic when I first walked In into Schervier Nursing Center, the place where I would be doing volunteer work for the summer. Before that, I had never been In a care center for elderly residents, so I didn't really know what to expect. “You will be assigned to the fourth flour on the north side.” Every volunteer was assigned to a different area. As I arrived to my floor I examined the white halls that would lead me to my destination.
Good for you it looks like you have an exceptional understanding of these words. You have definitely helped me to expand my medical vocabulary. From your choice of words I learned that Neauropathy is a disease that caauses numbness or weakness which I had never known before. I also learned that Meningeal is three layers of membranes covering the brain and spinal cord. Which, is also something I had never known before.
Fridays at New York Presbyterian Weill Cornell were a mixed bag for patient escorts like myself. Walking through the halls of the hospital could reflect a quiet, almost monastic sanctuary, or it could be one of perpetual hustle in which I disappear amongst the many faces, their immediate needs, and their looming battles with disease. One of my challenges is the toll that the emotional investment in the people I help has on me. I try to keep myself as default as possible on the outside, while inside, the pressure of the moment attempts to rip me apart like fault lines in an earthquake. I recall one Friday that started off as the former.
During my course with NSCC, where I am studying to become a Continuing Care Assistant. Each student is required to work in a continuing care facility alongside other health care providers for a month. I attended skills development placement at Harbour View Lodge located in Sheet Harbour. This placement has given me the opportunity to apply my knowledge, and skills that I have studied and practiced in the classroom. When entering the facility the first week I felt nervous and excited at the same time.
