Summary of Internship
As an intern in Englewood Hospital, I am able to volunteer in many of the services that are offered by the hospital every Thursday. Through the hospital, the interns are able to enter into surgery rooms as well as observe many treatments and procedures. I specifically intern in the Emergency Department. I transport patients to their specific rooms in terms of how severe the patient’s chief complaint, symptoms, and vital signs are. Furthermore, I observe the movement and actions of how the nurses and physicians, seeing how they treat patients, and how they triage said patients. This internship requires a great deal of patience and perseverance, as sometimes there is almost little to no “action”. However, the days that there is “action” the emergency room is almost packed and I am constantly on my feet.
