Surgical Tech: As a seasoned surgical technician, I provided training to 7 enlisted personnel on all aspects of the department. I work hand on hand with the general surgeon, nurses, and technicians to ensure quality of care is present at all times.

Surgical Technologist must always uphold to the maximum professional standards, with that we can not let out thought’s or religious views come in contact with taking good care for the patient. All personal matters regarding the patient must be kept confidential, and not be spread to anyone else in the field unless patient instructed for you to relate the message to a Doctor. For example, from personal experience working in the medical field for a couple of years having to deal with different personal matters I never talked about work outside the office. Especially if you may know the patient outside the office, say like a friend or family member that went to the office regarding a personal matter, and they don’t want anyone to find out it is my
The first eight years of my life, I spent in India where I was born. Growing up I was constantly reminded by my parents that I needed to make them proud by getting a good job and living a good lifestyle. They told me this because they did not want to see me live a hard life like they did. When I was nine years old, I moved from India to the United States of America. The reason why I moved to America was not because I was living a bad life in India, it was so that I could have a better education and more opportunities in life. When I came to America, I had to go through much struggle. First and the most important was that I did not know how to speak English. Apart from this I was very shy, so I didn’t communicate with people frequently.
When I enter my kid’s doctor’s office they were all very friendly, helpful. They were all wearing their scrubs. The new doctor that they are going to does not make the receptionist wear scrubs and they can have earrings and facial piercings. The MOS, and M.A are the same, no hoops. Although they are the best and the M.A that’s on staff has been there since I was young, and now she is my kids ' doctor.
I have been able to work side-by-side with a Pathologists ' Assistant since day one and because of this, I fully understand their role in the medical society. I owe a lot of what I learned as a grossing technician to them because of their guidance, input, and examples. The more I asked them questions and the more I watched them work, the more captivated I became by their role and realized I wanted to be in their position. As a result, I believe that my close working relationship with the Pathologists ' and Pathologists ' Assistants, as well as the exposure and knowledge I have gained by working in the department will help me succeed, particularly in Loma Linda University 's Pathologists ' Assistant program.
One of the key components in this career is the ability to explain clear procedures to your patient so that they know what is going on at all times. Along with clear procedures comes comforting them because most times a patient may be new to the surroundings. How you present yourself to the patient will play a big part in determining how relaxed they will be; although, this does not always go as planned. You will most likely get a few frantic patients either because of their current medical situation or simply because they are unfamiliar and nervous, so you must be mentally prepared to handle that situation with ease by being compassionate and always feeling empathetic for your patient. I also learned that being extremely observant by noticing the small details is another essential part in being a

Deep within the bowels of Camden Clark Medical Center I began my workday as any other. My basket consisted of sharp fresh needles, silky gauze, alcohol swabs, and several unused tubes. My patients dreadfully awaited to be drawn as I stock my supplies. Every day I work I walk into unknown territory, not knowing what could happen at any given time. The hospital is a very hazardous and precautionary place. Generally working with admitted patients, I come in contact with the same patient several times a day and many times a week to draw a persons blood. My job has unusual experiences I will never forget. A dirty needle-stick, getting hit, and training, explains my worst day working as a Phlebotomist.
My future career objective is to become an Anesthesiologist. Anesthesiologist play an important role in patients which are undergoing surgery or any other medical procedure. They often included in the process before, during, and after the procedure by determining the exact appropriate amount of anesthesia a patient receives.

A typical day for an Anesthesiologist revolves around a busy schedule. At times Anesthesiologist may follow a daily planned routine, while in other occasions it might be filled with chaos due to the unexpected factor found in any medical field related career.

Imagine for a moment, a surgeon in the O.R. performing coronary artery bypass graft surgery. Their objective is to restore normal blood flow to the heart by grafting a vein or artery from the patient’s chest, leg or arm and bypass the blocked artery to the heart. Sounds simple enough. Oh, one more thing, the grafted artery is 2.8 mm in diameter, and there is certainly no shortage of blood and other bodily fluids obstructing the physicians view. In this situation, a surgeon’s ability to stay laser focused and not take their eyes of the patient is critical. Unfortunately, not only is a surgeon tasked with the successful graft of the patient’s artery, he or she, must simultaneously monitor the patient’s vitals to make sure the patient doesn’t
The circulating nurse also initiated the time-out. During the time-out, the circulating nurse said the patient’s name, the surgery that the patient was getting, and the limb in which the surgery was being performed on. The other health care professionals agreed that it was the right patient, right site, and right procedure. Throughout the surgery the circulating nurse continued to ensure the safety of the patient by watching the surgical staff and making sure that the sterile field was not contaminated. This nurse’s role also included gathering materials for the surgeon, throwing away trash, and keeping the environment comfortable for the staff. Towards the end of the procedure the nurse counted all sponges and needles with the scrub to make sure that no equipment was left within the patient. The nurse also continued to document information such as the length of the surgery and the amount of blood lost throughout the procedure. Lastly, the circulating nurse cleaned the room and then transferred the patient into a hospital bed to be transferred to the post-anesthesia care unit.
