I was asked these questions recently, and thought I would answer them and share my experience with all of You?
Q: What's the atmosphere like at your hospital This is supposed to be the highest week of reported cases in Mass. Are you folks overwhelmed with patients?
A: As a person who currently works on the front lines in the hospital during the Covid-19 - Corona Virus it is not easy? I will start off by telling each of you how proud I am to be a part of it. The people I work with are truly amazing. We made a choice to put our life on hold to serve the public. Each shift I work and have worked it never surprises me of the things I witnessed? Starting with the intake staff to the Doctors, Nurses and all the staff. They are Truly Amazing, placing their life’s aside to service the public. At the end of each shift you witness some tears, some smiles, hugs and many prayers. It is truly an amazing site to be a part of! With this week and the next being what is expected to be the worst of it? Please take stay at home, stay safe and remember to keep 6 feet apart!
Q: How concerned are you about working within the direct healthcare environment and possibly exposing your family to this illness?
A: This I find to be a hard question to answer. When I made the choice to take the job, I never knew it would mean coming down to making a choice to separate from my family? Recently, I had to make a serious choice in my life. The choice was to continue working or stop? Do to the fact of putting my children and family at risk? As most know I am a single dad with two young girls ages 8-11 years old? Before making my choice I talked it over with them and asked what they thought I should do? They both said dad you have to save life’s? With tears in my eyes, I spent the night with them and then made arrangements with my sister to take my girls for the time being. This by no means is what I or any of us who have made similar choices to do have done. Nor did we ever think in a life time should we ever have to choose? I FaceTime them often and just spent a few days with them before I return back to work on Thursday! Thinking I was alone and upset at the fact of the choice I made at the time? The first night after the arrangements while working, my co-workers knew I wasn’t myself that night? Asking what was wrong with me? I shared what took place that afternoon, only to find out some co-workers made similar choices? Some sleep in their cars, some in hotels?
Q: Are you comfortable and confident with the safety standards established by your hospital?
A: Yes! First and For-most I put my faith and Trust in My Lord God! I truly believe this is what me and my co-workers were put together to do? To me it is a calling? The hospital has and continues to put our health concerns first. Making sure we are protected and have the proper #PPE to protect ourselves and the public. I will add and ask each of you to support us in spreading the word we need more #PPE? When you see on the news how hospitals are dealing with short supplies we are not lying to you? We Need More #PPE!
I have answered these questions to the truth and best of my opinion. This is what a typical day starts and ends with on a daily bases.
My shift starts out by clocking in and going to the floor. A leader leads by example is my first thought? So I start off by seeing who needs backup? Where we are lacking and making the necessary arrangements to cover it? As I am doing this we are being called to room after room. This one here needs this, that one there need that and in the meantime code Blue is be paged to room so and so? A few minutes go by and Code Blue is being called out again. Doctor’s, nurses, CNA’s being told to go there, no over there, no to room xxxx? This continues for hours and hours. The person in room xxxx just pasted? Called the morgue and notify them. Families calling to get information, the emergency room is needs back up can you spare some nurses? Can you send a few aids? Before you know it admitting just sent up four more patients? Where do I put them? All the rooms are filled? The supervisors are running from one end to the other assisting where needed? 8 hours has passed and you take a minute to drink some water? By the time you drank half the cup, you are being paged to go to room xxxx immediately. And it starts all over again, no time for a break, no time for lunch and before you know it 15 hours has come and you say your good-bye’s to return the next day and do it all over again! To my co-worker’s, and all the team players I work with each shift, Thank you for who you are? Thank you for putting your life on the line and the sacrifices we make each time we are together to serve the sick! As a Delegate and Employee I never thought or Knew what it was I signed up for? Nor did I or anyone ever imagine this would ever happen in a life time! There is not one person I can’t Thank enough or Appreciate More than each of them I work with in the Hospital! I ask one thing of each of you? Be Kind to Each Other, Love One Another, Show Respect to Each and All! One never knows what tomorrow will Bring? Please follow the CDC.gov for updates!
New York has a little of everything for those interested in pursuing a nursing career. From rural nursing to inner city health, there are thousands of open nursing jobs in New York.
Quick, name the city in the United States that offers nurses the most career opportunities. If you guessed New York City, you hit the nail on the head. In 2005, there were nearly 70,000 jobs for skilled nurses in New York City. But there's more to the demographic than just numbers. When it comes to nursing jobs, New York is number one in more ways than one.
Salaries - According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the mean salary for a registered nurse nationally is $52,810. In New York, 72% of all registered nurses are earning more than $55,000 annually. The average salary for a registered nurse in New York is $64,000 as compared to the national average of $49,840. (all statistics from BLS). A licensed practical nurse can count on a salary in the $30,000-$45,000 range. New York is the single top market for nursing jobs across the country.
Flexibility - Registered and licensed nurses have incredible flexibility in work schedules and types of jobs. Nursing jobs in New York offer a wide range of opportunities that can fit nearly anyone who enjoys working with and helping people. There are nursing jobs available at prestigious teaching hospitals and universities, at inner-city clinics, an upscale doctor's offices and in schools or with the health department. A New York nurse might specialize in obstetrics or dermatology, in pediatrics or oncology or in any one of myriad other specialties. Nowhere else in the world is there such a wide variety of nursing jobs available.
Scheduling is every bit as flexible. As hospital and other medical facility administrators try to cope with the shortage of nurses (predicted to hit 800,000 by 2020); they've started offering schedules that fit anyone's way of life. It's not unusual for a nurse to work three twelve hour shifts in a week and have four days off, or work just weekend nights – for a premium salary.
Career Options - New York has a lot to offer nurses in the way of career opportunities and continuing education. The state is home to some of the best teaching hospitals in the world. Nurses who are ready to move on will find it easy to make a lateral move to a different type of nursing, or to climb the career ladder in nearly any nursing specialty field imaginable. Here are just a few ‘non-traditional' New York nursing jobs.
Community Health Nurse - Not all nurses work in hospitals and nursing homes. Community health nursing jobs in New York include on-site nursing in transitional residences or home visit nurses who help people stay in their homes rather than ending up in a nursing home or institution. Working in community health can include being part of ground-breaking research, combating an unexpected epidemic or teaching new young mothers how to care for their babies in their own homes.
Policy Makers - For nurses who want to make a difference on a wide scale, there are many nursing jobs that include opportunities to help make policy. Nurses are integral team members at insurance companies, in government, and on hospital boards. As a consultant to city and town councils, nurses help to ensure that patient and family needs are met when the big companies make policies that affect nursing and medical care.
Occupational Health Nursing - More and more large businesses are including an on-site nurse on their payroll. Occupational health nurses may work for a single company, doing preventive and assessment nursing, or work for a clinic or rehabilitation facility helping patients recover from sports and work-related injuries, or learn to live with limitations caused by their medical conditions. New York is at the forefront of many trends in nursing, and a nurse who chooses to specialize in occupational health will find many nursing jobs in New York.
Teaching Specialties - Nurse educators are very much in demand in any large city, and New York is no exception. Whether teaching nursing in a formal nursing school or delivering continuing education in the form of in-services and specialty courses, there's a place for a nurse with a talent for passing on knowledge to others.
In short, New York has a little of everything for those interested in pursuing a nursing career. From rural nursing to inner city health, there are thousands of open nursing jobs in New York.
