I was able to shadow Dr. Bohman on several occasions and witness a multitude of procedures. anesthesia is an interesting field, half the time you’re checking on patients, giving nerve blocks, and the other half you’re watching a monitor and checking vitals; add to it the on-call hours and you’ve got a job that requires a lot of dedication. The only downside at least from the perspective of an observer is that often you do not get to see what’s going on because the of the sheet they pin up.
During my sophomore year, I was fortunate enough to shadow an internist. I came in every other day and observed his interaction with patients. He managed patients from different age groups and diverse backgrounds. Various illnesses come through that door and I was there to witness aspects of it. I interacted with patients per the physician’s permission to do as such.
Clinical experience was meaningful and learned many things about some specific patients. In the morning I attended some call lights, did some diaper changed, and helped pass out trays. I also help fed Mrs. M.S by bringing to the dining room and fed her. Throughout I maintain professionalism and provided caring. Midday I was with Physical Therapy and Speech Therapy.
“So this is what it’s like to be a lone wolf, having no one, my only friend is the one who looks back at me through the mirror.” I think this thought every day when I ride the bus, because I really have no friends. I sit in the very back of the bus, I go to school in a rather rural area in Pennsylvania, but my bus is packed. The elementary school kids are doubled and tripled in their seats, the high school kids are mostly doubled, accept for the three girls in seat eighteen, because nobody dared to sit with me. I wasn 't a weird kid, I didn 't move here recently, I did look bad, I had long black hair, 6”1 ', broad shoulders, rather slim but muscular from working on the farm, calloused hands from working with hay and tools, squared jaw, farmer
A Ghostly Spark Introduction (reveal): Native American culture has always been an interest of mine. Since my beginning with the Boy Scouts of America on my path to Eagle Scout, I have come closer to the dense but often forgotten history of the First Nation people of America. Upon joining the Order of the Arrow, the BSA’s honor society centered around Native American virtues and beliefs, I have continued to take it upon myself to learn more about the long forgotten Native history. While I knew about the general struggles the Native Americans faced as “white man” invaded the unharnessed Western frontier, I had not learned about the specific catalyzing incidents that caused such conflict and suffered between these two cultures. While searching through topics like native music and combat, I knew I needed an event that sparked the rift between these two types of people, growing U.S. government and early
Well my first concrete strategies is to have Fridays off which mean I can be able to work Friday all day. My second strategy is to end my classes between 12:05pm or 1:30pm in order to have my afternoon free to work. My three strategy is to find a location that is not far from my house nor John Jay College so that the commute from school to work and work to school is not far so, that I can be able to balance my school work and a job. Also If I find a location that works on Saturday and Sunday I can work from Friday to Sunday giving me a flexible time to balance work and
I never thought that people would whisper behind my back. Through the hallways, I strolled to the familiar, lush field with large trees for recess. Then, the biggest, meanest bully on campus steps directly in front of me, blocking my exits. He and his gang begin to insult me, and I don't like their tone of voice. Just when I turn my back, he slams me into the hard ground.
In regards to my incomplete overtime forms: I was unaware on how to fill out the revised O.T. forms properly. Like many things that I am not informed of, this being one of them I had to ask for clarification. A few weeks ago from current date I asked my immediate supervisor Francisco Valle (Supervising Radiologic Technologist II) how should I document my pre-shift overtime and my post-shift overtime. My pre-shift overtime is the day prior to my scheduled work day which means I clock in at 11:00 pm. and any overtime worked after my normal works hours are the next day.
When I was five years old, my family moved from our home country of Chile to the United States of America because of my dad’s job. This was the first time in my life that I had ever witnessed someone taking a life-changing leap. Not many people are willing to pack up all of their belongings and move 5,000 miles away from their family, friends, and home country, but my parents made this monumental decision because they believed that it was the best thing for our family. My parents were the first people I saw to take the road less traveled by, and it made a great difference for me. As a seventeen year-old kid in high school, I have not had many chances to take the road less traveled by.
Traveling from city to city after every two years since childhood made me realize how much there is to learn and explore. This nomadic lifestyle of mine gave me a thirst to travel and learn about new places, diverse people, and their surroundings. Traveling became a part of life because I am the daughter of an armed officer, but the extensive change in locations made me hungry for more experience. It captivated me to my deepest core. Little did I know that this carving for new adventures would remain with me.
The Moving Diaries_Part One Day One This was the day I found out I was getting transferred from San Diego California to Houlton Main. Man, I was not looking forward to telling my wife that we are going to move almost three thousand miles away from where she grew up. As I sat there at my desk. My heart began to pound and I felt the palm of my hands begin to sweat.
