A Day in the Life: Duty at the Emergency RoomSunday, November 20, 2016
I'll be sharing my life as an E.R. Clerk on Duty in this post. So, we have a 24-hour duty every 3 days. I've had a few exposures in the E.R. a couple of months ago, so it was good to be able to acquire more skills as a Community and Family Medicine Clerk.
Here's a rundown of my to-do's in a day...
Most of the time, we monitor patients and look for signs and other clues to see if the patients are at a toxic state or otherwise. We then refer ASAP to the attending physician with the latest vital signs and pertinent observation.
On my last E.R Duty for this rotation, I had a heavy 24-hour duty food specially delivered by my beau.
