Summary of Internship
Interns in Holy Name Hospital work under the supervision of Karen Chapman and Nancy Teresi. I am currently involved in two departments. The first of which is the Courtesy Desk. Courtesy Desk is a necessary step for all volunteers and interns at the hospital. It allows the intern to become familiarized with the hospital; allowing them to become more comfortable with their surroundings. The main purpose of the Courtesy Desk is to deliver materials to different parts of the hospital or to discharge patients. The second department with which I am involved is the Emergency Room. I work under the supervision of the doctors, nurses, and medical technicians. My responsibilities vary from assisting with electrocardiograms to restocking the different rooms within the department. I have learned a lot about the medical field and emergency response from interning in the Emergency Room.
