My experience working for and with the team at CGMH has deeply impacted me as a nurse and individual. The knowledge and extensive expertise in that small hospital has humbled me and inspired me. Their dedication and appreciation towards their work and co-workers is remarkable.
I wish I could stay
There I was taught proper bedside reporting of each patient. I was able to collaborate with other health care professionals and advocate for all areas of my patients care ranging from medications to physio, CCAC, Hopsice, Respite, LTC or Rehab depending on patients needs.
The most difficult part of my job was appreciating that even with modern science and a collective body of health care professionals some patients can not overcome hurdles.
The best part of my job is being able to continually fight those odds with our amazing team and usually we win.
