Weekly Evaluation

This week of duty may perhaps be the most exciting and memorable as compared to all the other rotations. This may be because of the fact that this week is the last time that we will have to sleep late at night for the following day’s requirements, wake up early in the morning to prevent being late and incurring extensions, and be stressed out from the day’s duty. But it was quite sad that instead of rejoicing we were reprimanded because we were not courteous to the patients and staff nurses, I don’t really know much of this issue because I was late for the post-conference because I wasn’t informed that we were going to have the post-conference already.

This was my first time to handle three patients at a time. Thank God we didn’t have to administer meds for this day, or else it would be quite a mess. I have to prepare the meds, do a drug study with my PCI then CI, and then administer them, and finally document the procedure. I was also quite lucky that I didn’t have to take in the newly admitted patient into my care since we were already about to go home at the time she was admitted. I admit that there are still areas that I need to update myself and be more familiarize with like the IVF for example. I need to learn how to be more accurate in reading in reading my IVF levels and be more mindful of the input and output values of my patients.

For this rotation, I give myself 7 out of 10 with 10 as the highest. Although I wasn’t able to make any serious mistakes or errors in this day I am not satisfied with my performance and I know that I could still improve in the future.
