the removal of the disposable table cover, disposal pillow, and disposal pillow sheet, disposable on board cover (the list goes on) and replace them with new disposable materials as well as removing the trash (anything that’s not washable from the surgery), and the soiled linen. In addition, in the process of changing over rooms was mopping. Furthermore, I know that we use this for sanitary reasons; however, I wonder why we can’t have a re-washable system. That was not the only job they were…
Technician taught me many things. From how to draw shots to how to take x-rays. One of the most common lessons I learned was how to spay a female canine. Although the Veterinarian is the only one allowed to be “hands-in” during surgery, I learned a lot from watching the procedure.
Surgery preparations begin the day before. The patient in question is dropped off and spends the night. Vet Techs are busy cleaning and “cooking” surgical tools and cutting drapes. Also, Techs are to make sure all…
The ethical dilemma I encountered was when I used to work in a Neurosurgery ICU floor. We received a patient from the OR department who suffered a gunshot wound to the temple and was clinging to life with unstable vital signs and a poor GCS status.
Step 1) Identify the problem: With the patient having a poor prognosis based on no significant improvement after initial treatment in ER and eventual surgical intervention, the family continues to request that all life-saving interventions be done…
In the healthcare world today, SMART Goals are commonly used. SMART goals are a structure or a template that maps out goal setting.

Nursing is a lifelong learning. To grow professionally in nursing I need to reflect and analyse on my clinical experiences. It will help me to improve my professional practice, gain more knowledge and skills, and increase my critical thinking abilities and confidence in dealing with difficult situations. To reflect on what I had learned during my past work experiences I will use Gibbs reflective cycle.
It was my first week of work as an Operating Theatre (OT) nurse. I was very anxious and…

small. Nobody wants to get injured, unless you hate the sport, but it’s guaranteed that a few weeks can be missed through an athletic career due to injuries. However, there is always one injury that athletes fear more than any other, and that is surgery to fix any torn ligaments in your knee. My freshman year of high school, I was the unlucky soul that suffered a torn ACL and Meniscus in my left knee. To this day I’m still not sure how it really happened, but it has definitely impacted my life.…
Makeup isn't really bad for the skin but it can clog the pores from time to time especially when you don't clean your face afterwards. This can lead to breakouts in those who have sensitive skin which can lead to redness, irritation, and rashes from time to time. Also, makeup particles can block the pores and everything that are inside such as sweat, oil, and dirt just to name a few which can make your sensitive skin even worse. This can leave you worried on the state of your skin when it comes…
First aid and initial assessment: When you first find the barn owl you need to assess it to see if it need any fluids.
