I was a pca in major hospital, some of the patients that stick with u,the most sick ones and to see them recover
I love it. Anytime you see the patient is distress and you give them quality care and passion for your work goes a long way when you see them smile or give praise!
Being a medical assistant is breath taking,literally lol. Its very fast paced and your always on your feet. But in thr emd to me its all worth it. When you see someone leave with a smile amd stops and tells you thank you, just makes your day.
I would have to say the patients that I met, I go places and see them outside of work and they talk and want to know how I am doing. It just makes me feel like my job matters.
To tell you the truth I don't have any cherished memories. I applied to more than over 50+ jobs. And not a one would hire me because "I didn't have at least 2 years experience!" So needless to say I have to pay on schooling that didn't help me with job placement, So I could get the experience I needed.
My PATIENTS!! And of course the Physician I worked with was AWESOME!!! I had to get different job, and was very very sad, but it ends up that alot of my pts get allergy shots too so I still get to see them!!! The bonds that were made are strong for sure!!!
I lived in Charleston S.C. for 38 years and drove over railroad tracks in North Charleston going up to Goose Creek and in to Moncks Corner. Six times a day those tracks were a pain in the commute to where ever I was going. Then I met the 99 year old man that laid those tracks as a young pre-teenaged boy trying to help his Mom after his Dad died leaving 9 children for her to take care of during a bad economic time in history. He talked about those train tracks like it was the statue of liberty herself and was so proud that the work he did was still existing and being useful in our present day. Suddenly those tracks weren't a pain in my commute but a symbol of sacrifice and hard work from a kind and humble man who in his final years was simply grateful to contribute. He is South Carolina's unsung "John Henry".
My moments are meeting new patients and helping make a difference in their lives!!
Please don't bother me with the senseless bus about not being able to get a job
From 2017? Nothing after that?
I guess there aren't many "cherished" memories?
I'm in the process of trying to get a volly EMT slot in my area right now....but so far my memories come from great EMT instructors and support folks.While this is not #MedicalAssistant per say...it is first contact with a person going through the worst day of their lives and they know (hopefully) we are there to help them make it through it!
