Summary of Internship
I attend my internship at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center in the Post- Surgery Rehabilitation Nursing Department (8 Dean).While on the floor I help nurses there, in all of the aspects that nursing has. This first thing I do when I get there is change all of the patient's water pitchers and change the box of gloves in each room.I also help the nurses pull up medical records on the computers and I help them when ever a patient's light goes on. Often, I follow the nurses when they are giving the post- surgery patients therapy.
