Pros: good patient rapport, excellent relationship with cooworkers ( nurses, np, md, pharmasists, managers).
Cons: late working hours (i am suppose to work 8 hours but i usually wor 9-10 hrs/day), not enough resourses.
At the start of the shift we all have a huddle with all the team, pharmacists, NP, manager, and the nursing staff to discuss the patients treatment plan. Patients then come and get their treatments. Our infusion center has 9 chairs and we have a flow of 15-24 patients per day. Time is very valuable for us and we keep very busy all the time. I enjoy – more... the relationships and rapport I form with my clients because the fact that they come so often helps in getting to know each other at a closer level. Therefore I can predict or prevent a lot of complications just by knowing them better. The hardest part of my job is the flexibility of scheduling. I work Monday through Friday and when I need a day off is very difficult to get it approved. My coworker's and me are like family members. We help and support each other, by anticipating our needs and by always practicing safe companionate care. We also informed each other of our weakness to prevent any future mistakes. – less
