Background Information

The rehabilitation center is located in Bergenfield, New Jersey. The office first opened in 2012. With an office filled with plenty of staff members, therapists take their time to help patients and to give them the motivation they need in order to heal up quickly. Body Works focuses on patients and the comfort of their patients. They have grown great relationships with everyone who receives therapy and who interacts with the rehabilitation center. Therapists truly work hard to make the rehabilitation process a success.

Summary of Internship

Upon arriving to internship, I have the benefit of helping in the office and interacting with many different people. I start off my day greeting the staff and all the patients in the office. During the morning hours, there are not much patients around. I careful observe patients and also look at the different procedures therapists give to their patients. During the course of the day, I prepare heat pads for electric stimulation, set up and organize work areas, and also help the patients if they need any assistance. From when I first started internship up to now, I have noticed the comfort that all the therapists carry with me. The therapists never hesitate to ask me to help them with any task. The first quality I wanted to master at my internship was communication. I have learned to talk to people from different ages and with different attitudes. In the medical field, individuals must be careful with patients and must care about sanitation as well. Learning about different procedures is something that has also caught my eye throughout this wonderful experience. I am thankful for the opportunity to be part of this organization and plan to keep impressing the staff with my help.
