Busy ward but very rewarding
As HCA co-ordinator it was my job to delegate and carry out tasks given to me by the shift manager. Help patients with all needs as required, ensuring all emergency eqipment was in working order, in date and that the crash trolley was stocked as per ressusitation guidelines. Ensuring the patient bed spaces were kept clear of clutter.Making sure all dietary needs were met and that they were taking enough fluids. Ensuring observations were taken at the correct time, and reporting any changes. Making sure that the daily careplans were kept up to date.
The hardest part was going home knowing that you didnt have time to complete all your jobs and having to hand them over to the on coming shift.
The most enjoyable was seeing your patients smile, knowing that they are being well looked after.
An excellent team of both clinical and non-clinical staff
