What organization did you visit?
I spent a day shadowing a registered nurse at Denver Health on October 31st, 2016. I must admit, I don’t know what it is about me, but I really enjoy being in a hospital setting. I have always found that peculiar about myself. It’s not that I like to see sick people or that I like to be there for no reason but I’ve always felt like that is an environment that I feel comfortable in. I hadn’t visited this hospital in many years. Denver health has changed so much over time, I remember going there when I was a little girl to meet most of my newborn baby cousins. The hospital has since then been renovated and upgraded. Denver health has long history behind it and has been around for hundreds of years.
Denver Health, first known as Denver General was first established in 1860 and it stood on 11th and Wazee st. downtown Denver. In 1873 a new medical center was opened on the corner of 6th ave and Cherokee and that is where Denver Health stands to this day. Denver Health serves over a third of Denver’s population and treats 66,000 children per year. (2016 Denver health) From my personal knowledge, Denver Health has also been ranked one of the best trauma centers in the nation.
