You are reading page 2 of What is the ER really like?
I love the fast pace and the team work in the ER. There's nothing like it! I used to work full-time in a level II trauma ER, I did get a little burnt out with the adults. I now work full-time Pedi Urgent Care and prn Pedi ER (same hospital) and love it.
teeituptom, BSN, RN
no difference in either adults or babies
just their size
and babies have an excuse
but even with babies
you still have their parents
As a new grad RN 10- months now., i can't imagine anything else...... ED is awesome!!!!!
of course it is
Of course it is
the only way to go
the wonderfull world of the ER
1-where else would you meet someone with a GI Joe head in their bum?
2-you will never work with a group of people who are so team-work oriented. In reality, your safety and well being are in their hands. I know that the nuts I work with are like second family to me. I love those goofs.
3-Never the same thing every day. It always changes. Slow and sluggish one minute, and them BAM! Someone is looking to you to get their loved one to breathe again.
4-You can make an immediate difference in someones life.
All in all, you have some really crappy days. But that one time that I saw a beautiful 3 yr old that we had coded when she was 6 mos (SIDS) happy and healthy, made all of the bad days seem like childs play.
It's a great choice!
If you want to work ER in a level one trauma center then all I can say is,"fasten you seat belt."
