First, we will do our routine endorsement to all the patients in NICU, then we will have our loading of patients/newborns. I have learned so much in our day-to-day work, like how to manage time properly especially in feeding and assisting mothers in breastfeeding, to have proper rapport with my co-workers within and outside my designated area. I value my relationship to my co-staff so much because with this I could create a stress-free environment and I could be focus in rendering proper care to my patients. Our hospital management has a lot to improve since we are upgrading our hospital bed capacity. Sometimes, we disapproved to their newly implemented regulations but in the long run we managed to accept what they are trying to change and do for our benefits. I encountered some hardships especially in dealing with mothers whose newborn babies were not healthy or have newborn complications. It's a must to extend your patience in assisting their queries and demands. I am very delighted to be part of our neonatal intensive care team because I was able to extend and broaden my knowledge and expertise in dealing with newborns with or without complications.
