A busy and demanding environment but satisfying
Sister of Intensive Care Unit (Current Employee) – Yeovil – 2 March 2016
The day starts at 07.30 hrs with a brief handover of the ten patients in our care.The person in charge of the previous shift who understands the workload allocates the patients. As a Sister I am often in Charge which means helping and managing the staff under my care enabling them to take their essential meal breaks . Liasing with other professionals such as the medical Consultants, Dieticians , Pharmacist and physiotherapist . The Nurse in Intensive care inteprets the patient to the world and the world to the patient. They would explain situatations to the relatives .
I enjoy working in close co-operation with my colleagues and have regularly taken small groups to extend their knowledge .
I have found the 12.5 hr days long and i preferred the 7.5 days we used to have.
improving the acutely unwell .
