Witam! Zwracam się z wielką prośbą do jakiejś dobrej duszy znającej dobrze język Szekspira o stracenie chwili swojego życia na przeczytanie moich wypocin na temat wakacyjnych praktyk i wskazaniu błędów, które bankowo w nich są. Niestety nie mam do kogo się z tym zwrócić, a moja lektorka na uczelni jest baardzo czepliwa i nie chciałbym, żeby zniszczyła mnie oceną po prezentacji. :D Z góry dziękuję!
The subject of my presentation is well known and like all of you I’m going to talk about my holiday practice. According to polish law, every student of medicine has to hold nursing practice duty during his holidays after the summer session on first year of his studying.
I decided to perform my practice in small district hospital placed around my home instead of one of big clinical hospitals in the city where I am studying. I have chosen one of two internal wards, located on third floor. My ward contained eight rooms with one private bathroom in every of them and was prepared for treating around thirty-five patients at the same time. Fortunately rooms never were full so it was a little bit easier to work because there was only three nurses on a shift plus me. Generally fourteen nurses and six doctors were employed on my ward. It’s small hospital, everybody knows each other and the atmosphere between staff was very nice. Both nurses and doctors has their own room. Moreover there was treatment room where nurses were preparing drips and drugs and do a lot of their duties, next to the nurses recreation room. Like in every other internal wards as well in mine there were sluice room, dirty annex and storage room.
My typical day started at seven o’clock. It may seem so early but it’s time when the most things happens on a ward. My morning routine started with delivering drips, checking blood pressure and glucose level and taking blood samples with little help of one of nurses. For the first few days it was really hard for me because everything happened so fast to be ready before the morning round starts. After all medical activities it was time for breakfast which I helped to give out. Between breakfast and lunch I brought patients on tests and simple procedures. I saw an X-ray, a TK, a colonoscopy and a gastroscopy, catheterization and a few more. When I came back to the ward I brought investigation results to doctors. Right before lunch I had to check glucose level again and give injections such as insulin for diabetic patients. I was also given a Chance to see hospital laboratory where I had to take lots of samples.
The most memorable day was when one patient had a seizure and he needed the cardiac resuscitation. Everything ran so fast and there was no room for errors. All medical Staff were so professional and they are able to save the patient’s life. Unfortunately he died a few hours later and I end up putting his corpse into a black bag to carry it to the mortuary. It was so gloomy and grim, especially no one ever died on my holiday practice and that day was very dark and rainy.
To summarize it was four really exciting weeks of my life. I can even tell it was the most interesting part of first year of medicine studies. Anatomy nor histology cannot compare to practice when you have contact with alive people and you are not learning something only theoretically. Even though it was tiring and stressful I look forward to another practice next year.
