Summary of Internship
In this internship I started by doing volunteer work for the first few weeks. All interns had to do this since we needed to know where every department in the hospital was located. As an intern I transported patients to different departments, discharged patients, pick up blood from the blood bank, and helped the patient get their medicine. I was sent to the Infusion center to observe the medical staff and learn their procedures. Mostly, the infusion center deals with the care of cancer patients. In this internship I also learned how a hospital operates, the importance of always following directions and the need for good communication to do a good job.
