Each day in a hospital setting is very different, it can be very hectic most of the time but yet very rewarding. One gains great knowledge when dealing with other healthcare workers and patients. This can be both rewarding itself in your own feelings of being able to offer assistance to all. Management are open to ideas and can be easy to talk with one on one. Co-workers are great and are there to offer a lending hand or aid in any problem one may encounter. The most difficult part of this job is seeing very ill patients and knowing their outcome, leaving one feel helpless at times and very down. The enjoyable part of this type of work is knowing you are doing your best to assist all who require your service.
