Work History

Work History

RN

Camellia Home Health

I cared for patients that were placed on home health.  I saw patients weekly and more often if needed to conduct assessments, lab work, monitor disease processes and report to physicians any changes to patients conditions.  I have cared for elderly patients, middle age patients, and newborn patients.  Each age group and patient had different needs requiring flexibility as a nurse to provide the proper care.

I work in surgery providing daily patient care.  I do pre-op assessments, give meds as ordered, review consents and assist patients to surgery.  I circulate inside the surgery rooms maintaining sterile fields and conducting counts of instruments, sponges, needles and other various items.  I recover patients after surgery monitoring effects of anesthesia and administering meds per ordered.  I attend quality improvement meetings monthly organizing and compiling reports to be reviewed related to the surgery department.
