Probably depends on the clinic...
I work in an outpatient setting. In any given workday, I insert and monitor IV's on 4-8 patients, administer chemotherapy to several of these patients, administer blood products to at least
one patient each day, teach patients about their chemo treatments, care for central lines and teach patients how to care for their own lines.
I also get a lot of telephone calls from other departments, including lab, home health, pharmacy and other nurses and doctors. I get calls from patients (triage calls included), and schedule treatments. I insert PICC lines. I teach patients how to draw up medications in a syringe and give their own sq injections.
I monitor our patients labs, which includes getting the paperwork to the patients and following up to verify that they are drawn so the are ready before the treatment is due.
These are just a few of the "tasks". I won't even go into all the psycho-social and family issues that I encounter every day.
And, yes, I am the one who escorts them to the treatment room and gets their blood pressure!
