A great & productive workplace with hardworking healthcare team
LPN student (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 26 April 2012
A typical day at work would be attaining my goals for the day, good time management, and organization. I learned how to work faster in a fast paced environment. My co-workers were great! We worked as a team & shared the workload. The hardest part of the job was when there were a lot of things going on with a couple of patients and they happened all at the same time. There was one instance where a patient just had a blood transfusion & the other one just came from peritoneal dialysis & his blood sugar was @ 2.8. I spent most of my time doing vital signs for both every 15 minutes for the first hour and doing accu-chek to the other patient. I gave him some apple juice & glucose tabs at that moment & checked his blood sugar every 10 minutes until it went up to 4 while checkin on the other patient for any signs of allergic reaction to the transfusion. In between those times, I still had to check my other patients. It was a busy day but I managed. The most enjoyable part of the job was giving the best possible patient care using the best of my knowledge & abilities.
