Background Information

Englewood Hospital first started in 1890 as a non-profit and voluntary healthcare facility dedicated to providing patient care. It is well-known for its “bloodless medicine and surgery, cardiac, and vascular programs” as well as its management in breast care, oncology, and joint replacement services. Englewood Hospital provides training for medical residents through its affiliation with the Mount Sinai School of Medicine and the Mount Sinai Consortium for Graduate Medical Education.

Summary of Internship

My position involves me completing tasks in the NICU and accompanying my mentor, neonatologist Dr. Mercedes Delgado, to deliveries and procedures involving newborns. In the NICU, I was taught to make “admission packs” and “ivy packs.” These packs are made up of supplies vital to the infants staying in the unit. I also observed nurses as they provided care to the newborns and observed doctors and nurses as they “rounded” on the patients. The height of my internship was shadowing my mentor to deliveries, both vaginal and Cesarean-section, and to special procedures, such as circumcisions and x- rays. My mentor, other doctors, and nurses all taught me about the care of a premature or ill baby. They also taught me about the different diagnoses that required ICU care of a newborn. On some afternoons, I would rotate to different units, including Antepartum and the CATH Lab, to assist their unit and watch procedures as well. I would highly recommend this internship to any student interested in becoming a nurse or doctor because of the experience you would get from it, or to any student interested in learning about infants staying in the NICU.
