What advice would you give to someone to be successful on the job in critical care?

 

Video length: 58 seconds

Some advice that I would give somebody that’s trying to get into critical care is to really focus on your residency. Really focus on the material that they teach you. Focus on your preceptor and what they teach you. Analyze their work style. Analyze what they do when they’re on the job, when they’re on the clock. Figure out certain techniques and skills that you can use for your own. You have to analyze your personal work style. See if it works for you. Try to have more than one preceptor for that reason. I know that I’m pretty diligent when it comes to IMCU level care. I have my bed strips pulled up on my computer. I’m sitting next to my most critical patient, make sure that anything happens, I’m right there to catch it early. Things like that are very important definitely in critical care for sure.

What is the culture like in your department?

The culture on my floor is very supportive and friendly. We all have a very open communication with each other. When I need anything I know I can ask anybody on the floor to help me and they’ll be able to, or direct me in the right place. I feel pretty welcomed where I’m at and I try to make it always a point if there’s someone new on floor to make them feel comfortable, and I know other people do that as well.
