I recently got hired as a PCT at a local hospital,i've got already a week of orientation was most of the time in the classroom and next week I'm supposed to have a week on the floor
on Friday last week was the only day I was on the floor for the first time, and the PCT I was supposed to follow , sHe pretty much wanted me to do things that I didn't know how to do since I have not hospital experience, I used to work in a nursing home before so I do not know most of the things a PCTs do . Like for example vital signs EKGs, telemetry and some others. There is now a different way to chart , in each room of each Patients there is a computer inside beside every patient's bed I didn't even have a tutorial Or went over it, she was she was rushing me and saying can you do these can you do that can you please go these can you please go there, I did really really really get mad or Frustrated . And when I stopped her many times in tasks that I did not know Indy not have any idea to do she always got pissed . With vital signs I do not have any problem, because that was one of my skills when I was in CNA school and when we went the first date first week of orientation we went over it. Again. The problem here is my manager paired me with this personwhich seems not to have any time for me especially with the Telemetry and the EKG leads there is a bunch of think that I do not know how to hook up a patient . I do not know I'm supposed to be happy with this opportunity that God has giving me but I'm really frustrated I don't know what to do I don't know if I had to speak up and tell my manager to to please pair me with a different person next week, because next week is my week of my formal orientation on the floor . I was looking for these opportunity in the hospital but I'm not really happy the first day was on the floor last week I wanted to cry I thought working in the hospital as a PCT instead of the nursing home would be different in terms of the way you do things . What things I can say or tell them the first day next week when I go to my orientation, should I speak up and tell manager that Im having a hard time ? Or just follow whatever they do to me . And pretend I got it . My floor its a fast pace Renal unit . I wanted to mention. Please any input will be honestly awesome to me . I'm confused and unhappy , but I don't want to loose this job .
